A manager is having a trip in a balloon. Not very used to navigation, at some point he finds himself lost and releases some ballast to get closer to the ground.
On the ground below him there is a man, staring at the balloon. When the manager gets within earshot of the man, he shouts:
"Do you know where I am?
The man on the ground replies:
- Yes, you are in a balloon, at approximately fourty feet above the ground, and you are actually heading north-north west at a rather moderate speed.
The manager replies:
- You must be an IT engineer, aren't you?
- Yes, you're right! How did you figure it out?
- Because what you told me is technically and syntaxically correct, but unfortunately of no use to me.
- You must be a manager, aren't you?
- Yes! How did you find it out?
- You are in an equipment you don't know anything of, and yet managed to get here. But now you don't know where you are, and you don't know where to go. You are in the exact same situation than before meeting me, but now it is my fault."
There are two kinds of people in the world: those who separate humankind in two distinct categories, and those who don't.
