    Default Management

    A man in a hot air balloon, realizing he was lost, reduced altitude and
    spotted a man below. He descended further and shouted to the man
    "Excuse me, can you help me? I promised a friend I would meet him an
    hour ago, but I don't know where I am"

    The man below replied, "You're in a hot air balloon, hovering
    approximately 30 feet above the ground. You're between 40 and 41 degrees
    north latitude and between 59 and 60 degrees west longitude."

    "You must be in IT," said the balloonist.

    "Actually I am," replied the man, "How did you know?"

    "Well," answered the balloonist, "everything you have told me is
    technically correct but I've no idea what to make of your information
    and the fact is I'm still lost. Frankly, you've not been much help at
    all. If anything, you've delayed my trip."

    The man below responded, "You must be in Management."

    "I am," replied the balloonist, "but how did you know?"

    "Well," said the man, "you don't know where you are or where you're
    going. You have risen to where you are due to a large quantity of hot
    air. You made a promise, which you've no idea how to keep, and you
    expect people beneath you to solve your problems. The fact is you are in
    exactly the same position you were in before we met, but now, somehow,
    it's my ******* fault..."
