Just when he's about to lose hope, he sees another man walking in the field below him. He lowers the balloon and asks the man,
"Where am I?"
The man responds, "you are in a hot air balloon, about 10 feet above this field."
"You must be an engineer," replies the man in the balloon.
"Yes, I am... how did you know?" Asks the other man.
"Well, you see, you answered my question truthfully, but I am still no better off than I was before."
"You must be a manager," replies the engineer.
"Yes I am! How did you know?"
"Well, you have no idea where you are or where you're going, but now suddenly it's my fault."
