What happens When Management Messes With Engineers!
Once a woman found herself in a hot air balloon and discovered that she was lost! Later on she found a man below.
She slide downwards a little and shouted, Ã¢â‚¬ËœHello, can you please help me? I had promised my friend that I would meet him in an hour but it seems IÃ¢â‚¬â„¢m lost.Ã¢â‚¬Â
The man below replied. Ã¢â‚¬Å“You are in a hot air balloon which is around 35 feet above ground level. You are between 58 and 59 degrees west longitude and 39 and 40 degrees north latitudeÃ¢â‚¬Â
The lady said to him. Ã¢â‚¬ËœYou must be an engineer!Ã¢â‚¬â„¢
The man replied Ã¢â‚¬Å“Oh, yes! IÃ¢â‚¬â„¢m, how did you know that?Ã¢â‚¬Â
Ã¢â‚¬Å“Well, the details you gave to me about my location are technically very much correct but are useless to me, and the fact is that I am lost. You are of no use to me and rather you delayed my trip even more!Ã¢â‚¬Â said the lady in the balloon.
Ã¢â‚¬ËœThen, you must be in managementÃ¢â‚¬â„¢ said the man below.
Ã¢â‚¬ËœYes, IÃ¢â‚¬â„¢m but how do you know that?Ã¢â‚¬â„¢ asked the lady.
Ã¢â‚¬ËœWell, you have no idea where you are right now and you donÃ¢â‚¬â„¢t even know where you are going. You have reached at a level above ground because of the excessive quantity of hot air you might have asked to add so to reach early, which was not needed.Ã‚Â And, you have made a promise of which you are not bothered and you expect the people beneath you to help you and solve the problems that you have created?Ã¢â‚¬â„¢
