A man is flying in a hot-air balloon and realises he is lost. He reduces height and spots a man down below. He lowers the balloon further and shouts, "Excuse me, can you tell me where I am?"

The man below says, "Yes, you're in a hot air balloon, hovering 30 feet above this field".

"You must be a social scientist," says the balloonist.

"I am," replies the man, "How do you know?"

"Well," quips the balloonist, "Everything you told me is factually correct according to the circumstances, but it's of no use to anyone."

The man below says, "Then, you must be in business management."

"I am," replies the balloonist, "How'd you guess?"

The man below explains, "That's because you don't know where you are, or where you're going, but you expect me to be able to help. You're in the same position you were before we met, but now it's my fault."
