Accounting software consultant for a small company (15 people). Sounds boring, but our clients are mostly hotels/resorts so the training jobs take me to some pretty cool places. Been at it since '99.

I don't really know what that is either.

Reminds me of:

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

The man below replied, “You are in a hot air balloon hovering approximately 30 feet above the ground. You are between 40 and 41 degrees north latitude and between 59 and 60 degrees west longitude.”

You must be an engineer,” said the balloonist.

“I am,” replied the man, “How did you know?”

“Well,” answered the balloonist, “everything you told me is, technically correct, but I have no idea what to make of your information, and the fact is I am still lost. Frankly, you’ve not been much help so far.”

The man below responded, “You must be in Management.”

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

“Well,” said the man, “you don’t know where you are or where you are going. You have risen to where you are, due to a large quantity of hot air. You made a promise which you have 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.”

What Penfold said.

I have forwarded that joke to a work colleague who has just been passed over for Head of Unit and is understandably not well disposed towards Management at present. :twisted:

Make that 3 of who have been to the ice (5 summers seasons at McMurdo & 1 at Amundsen-Scott with the kiwi blue-jobs). last season was '99/00...an EXCELLENT place to re-read pterry, lots of time & space to contemplate...think of it as l-space without the geography.
