A man in a hot air balloon tries to ask for directions from a man on the field. The two engage in a conversation, but things turn out differently.
Sometimes, a simple conversation can reveal a lot about a person. From the words they use and their mannerism of speaking, it is easy to detect some things about them.
A man is flying in a hot air balloon when he realizes that he is lost. Noting the precarious situation, he reduces height and tries to ask for direction.
Spotting a man down below, he navigates towards him with the intent of asking for directions. On getting closer to the man on the field, the lost man said: “Excuse me, can you tell me where I am?”
The man on the field looked up at him and replied that the man was in a hot air balloon and was hovering thirty meters above the field.
Stunned at this description, the man in the hot air balloon said he was sure the man on the field was an engineer judging from his report.
Surprised at the accurate guess, the man on the field affirmed that he was indeed an engineer, but he wanted to know how the balloonist made the precise guess.
Getting frustrated with the conversation, the man in the balloon replied that everything the man had told him was technically correct but was of no use to anyone much less himself.
The man on the field felt slighted by this and said he was confident the balloonist had a job in management because of how he had spoken and addressed him.
The hot air balloon man replied that he had a job in management and wanted to know how the man had guessed his occupation correctly.
Spotting a chance to give the man a taste of his medicine, the man on the field replied, saying: "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.”
