The Balloonist

A man was flying in a hot-air balloon and realized he was lost. He reduced altitude and spotted a man below.

He leaned over the basket and shouted: “Excuse me, can you tell me where I am?”

The man below said, "Yes, you’re in a hot air balloon, hovering about 30 feet above this field.”

The balloonist said with some irritation: “You must be an architect.”

“I am!” replied the man, surprised. “But how did you know?”

“Because everything you have told me is technically correct, but it doesn’t do ME any good,” said the balloonist.

The man on the ground laughed and said, “Well, then, you must be a building contractor.”

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

“Well” said the architect, “you don’t know where you are, or even where you are going, but you expect ME to be able to help you. So you’re still in the same predicament you were in before we met, but now it’s MY fault!"
