Default OT: Management

My fellow tech geek brethen will appreciate this:

Differences between Management and the IT department

A man in a hot air balloon realized he was lost. He reduced altitude and spotted a woman below. He descended a bit more and shouted, "Excuse me, can you help me? I promised a friend I would meet him an hour ago, but I don't know where I am."

The woman below replied, "You're in a hot air balloon hovering approximately 30 feet above the ground. You're between 40 and 41 degrees north latitude and between 59 and 60 degrees west longitude."

"You must be in IT," said the balloonist.

"I am," replied the woman, "How did you know?"

"Well," answered the balloonist, "everything you told me is, technically correct, but I've no idea what to make of your information, and the fact is I'm still lost. Frankly, you've not been much help at all. If anything, you've delayed my trip."

The woman below responded, "You must be in Management."

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

"Well," said the woman, "you don't know where you are or where you're going. You have risen to where you are due to a large quantity of hot air. You made a promise which you've 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."



-------------------------

For everyone else:

Management

At the dawn of time there were lots of little monkees. They were all sitting around a tree when some of the monkees climbed to the top. The rest stayed below.

The monkees at the top are the management.
The monkees below are the workforce.

And so the monkees at the top looked down and saw lots of smiling faces.

And the monkees at the bottom looked up and saw lots of *******s.

The end.
