Manager and programmer

    A man flying in a balloon found himself lost. He went down a little lower and noticed a woman on the ground. Going a little lower, he turned to her:

    - Excuse me, could you help? I agreed to meet with a friend an hour ago, but I don’t know where I am now.

    “You are in a balloon 30 feet from the surface of the Earth, between 40 and 41 degrees north latitude and between 59 and 60 degrees west longitude, a woman answered.”

    “You must be a programmer?”

    - Yes, but how did you guess?

    “You gave me an absolutely accurate answer, but I have no idea what to do with this information, and I'm still lost.” Frankly, you didn’t help me at all.

    - And you, probably, the manager?

    - Yes. How did you guess?

    “You do not know where you are or where you are going.” You went up there thanks to the air. You have made a promise that you have no idea how to fulfill, and expect that people below you will solve your problems. And finally, now you are in the same position you were in before meeting with me, but for some reason now I was to blame.
