A man in a hot air balloon realized he was lost.

He reduced altitude and spotted a woman below.

He descended a bit more and shouted,"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 woman below replied, "You are in a hot air balloon hovering
approximately 30 feet above the ground. You are between 40 and 41 degrees
north latitude and between 59 and 60 degrees west longitude."

"You must be an engineer," said the balloonist.

"I am," replied the woman, How did you know?"

"Well," answered the balloonist, "everything you told me is, technically
Correct, but I have no idea what to make of your information,and the fact
is
I am still lost.


Frankly, you've not been much help so far."

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

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

"Well," said the woman, you don't know where you are or where you are
going. You have risen to where you are due to a large quantity of hot air.
You made a promise which you have 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 you make me feel that somehow it's my fault".

MEMO :
------
From : Managing Director
To : Vice President

"Tomorrow morning there will be a total eclipse of the sun at
nine o'clock. This is something which we cannot see everyday.
So let all employees line up outside, in their best clothes to
watch it.To mark the occasion of this rare occurrence, I will
personally explain the phenomenon to them. If it is raining we
will not be able to see it very well and in that case the
employees should assemble in the canteen."

Translated :
From : Vice President
To : General Manager

"By order of the Managing Director, there will be a total
eclipse of the sun at nine o' clock tomorrow morning. If it is
raining we will not be able to see it in our best clothes, on
the site. In this case the disappearance of the sun will be
followed through in the canteen. This is something we cannot
see happening everyday."

Translated :
From : General managers
To : Industry Managers

"By order of the Managing Director, we shall follow the
disappearance of the sun in our best clothes, in the canteen at
nine o' clock tomorrow morning. The Managing Director will tell
us whether it is going to rain. This is something which we
cannot see happen everyday."

Translated :
From : Industry Managers
To : Location heads

"If it is raining in the canteen tomorrow morning, which is
something that we cannot see happen everyday, the Managing
director in his best clothes, will disappear at nine o'clock."

Translated :
From : Location heads
To : Marketing Executives

"Tomorrow morning at nine o' clock, the Managing Director will
disappear without his clothes . It's a pity that we can't see
this happen everyday".

Story from a software engineer-
I was in the VIP lounge last week en route to Seattle. While in the lounge, I notice Bill Gates sitting on the chesterfield enjoying a cognac. I was meeting with a very important client who was also flying to Seattle with me but she was running a bit late. Being a forward type of guy, I approached Mr. Gates and introduced myself. I explained to him that I was conducting some very important business and how much I would appreciate it if he could throw a quick "hello Chris" at me when I was with my client. He agreed. Ten minutes later while I was conversing with my client, I felt a tap on my shoulder. It was Bill Gates. I turned around and looked up at him. He said, "Hi Chris, what's happening?" To which I replied, "Get lost Gates, I'm in a meeting".
