Manager vs. Engineer

Found at the OMG Ubuntu joke contest
: A man is in a hot air balloon and he realizes he is lost. He spots a man in the field below him and calls down:
��� Excuse me, can you help? I promised a friend I���d be somewhere half an hour ago but I���m completely lost. Can you tell me where I am?���
The man replies:
��� You are about 30 feet above this field, you are between 40 and 42 degrees N. latitude, and between 58 and 60 W. longitude���
��� You must be an engineer��� says the balloonist.
��� I am!��� says the man, ��� How did you know?���
The balloonist laughs, ��� well, everything you���ve told me is correct, but I don���t understand what you are talking about and I���m still lost���
��� Ah, you���re a manager��� says the engineer
��� Indeed I am!��� replies the balloonist, ��� How could you possibly know that?���
��� Well������ says the engineer, ��� you don���t know where you are and you don���t know where you are going. You���ve made a promise you can���t keep and you expect me to solve your problem. You are in exactly the same position as you were before we met, except now somehow it���s my fault!���
