    A man in a hot air balloon realized he was lost. He reduced
    altitude and
    spotted a woman tending to the flowers in her garden. He
    descended a bit
    more and shouted, "Excuse me, can you help me? I promised a
    friend that
    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
    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 an Accountant," 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 have no idea what to make of
    information, and the fact is, I'm still lost. Frankly,
    you've not been
    much help at all. If anything, you have delayed my journey."
    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
    of 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 somehow it's now become my fault!"

    You are right, Sir !

    I am neither an accountant nor in management.But my husband being a "management accountant", as well, ( besides an "auditor" like you ) I fully agree with what you have written ! Virtues are always his, faults are always mine !
    Love & regards,

    know alls and do alls

    The world can be neatly divided into know alls and do alls. The do alls get all the blame as the know alls say "you ought to have known better." My husband says that the world belongs to those who control finance - so Varalotti you are a top gun and you sure know where you are and where you are going!
    Chithra, 98% of husbands blame their wives if anything goes wrong/is misplaced etc. Even if son's room is in a mess, hubby says "your son is such a lazy boy!" As if he was born by immaculate conception!
    I'm neither in the management cadre, nor an accountant - still I'm full of hot air and get bogged down by nitty-gritty! Guess it takes all sorts to make the world!
