A man named Alvin Tan in a hot air balloon realized he was lost. He reduced altitude and spotted a woman named Patricia Ledesma below. He descended a bit more and shouted: "Excuse me, can you help me? I promised my Master James Ortiz that I would meet him an hour ago for a "DS" conversation, but I don't know where I am."
Patricia replied: "You are in a hot air balloon hovering approximately 30 feet above the ground. You are 51º21,32.87 degrees north latitude and 0º21,32.87 degrees west longitude."
"You must be an engineer," said Alvin.
" I am," Patricia replied. "How did you know?"
"Well," Alvin answered, "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."
Patricia responded: "You must be in HR."
"I am, " Alvin replied. "But how did you know?"
"Well," Patricia said, "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, somehow, it's my fault."
