A man flying on a
balloon has found that he has got lost.
He took the
balloon a bit lower and saw a woman on the ground.
He asked her:
-- Sorry could you help me? I made an appointment with my friend an hour
ago but I don’t know where I am.
-- You’re on a balloon, 30 feet above the surface and your coordinates
are 40 to 41 and 59 to 60.
-- You must be a programmer.
-- Right, how did you guess?
-- You gave me an absolutely precise answer, but I don’t know what to do
with this information and I’m still lost.
-- And you’re probably a manager?
-- Yes, how did you know that?
-- You don’t know where you are and where you’re going.
You got to where you are because of air.
You gave a promise you couldn’t keep, and
expect people who are below you to solve your problems.
And finally, you are in the same situation as you were before you met me, but somehow now it’s my fault.
