May Day

Norman decides to take a balloon ride at the local May Day Fair. The balloon and its customers drift along in the breeze until eventually, they are lost. Norman has no idea where he is. When the gondolier takes the basket down to ten feet above ground, Norman calls to a passer-by:
'Excuse me, sir, can you tell me where I am?'
After looking Norman up and down, the passer-by responds: 'You are in a red balloon, ten feet above ground.'

The balloon's unhappy passenger replies, 'You must be a lawyer'
'How could you possibly know that?' asks the passer-by.

'Because your answer is technically correct but absolutely useless. The fact is I am still lost'.
'Then you must be in management', said the passer-by.

'That's right! How did you know?'
'You have such a good view from where you are and yet you don't know where you are and you don't know where you are going. The fact is, you are in the exact same position you were in before we met, but now your problem is somehow my fault!'
