Is this anyone you work for?

A man was flying in a hot air balloon and realized he was lost. He reduced height and spotted a man down below. He lowered the balloon further and shouted, "Excuse me, can you tell me where I am?"

The man below said, "Yes, you're in a hot air balloon, hovering 30 feet above this field."

"You must work in Information Technology" said the balloonist.

"I do," replied the man. "How did you know?"

"Well," said the balloonist, "everything you have told me is technically correct, but it's of no use to anyone."

The man below said, "You must work in Management."

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

"Well," said the man, "you don't know where you are, or where you're going, but you expect me to be able to help. You're in the same position you were before we met, but now it's my fault."
