A woman in a hot air balloon realized she was lost. She lowered her

altitude and spotted a man in a boat below.

She shouted to him, "Excuse me, can you help me? I promised a friend I


meet him an hour ago, but I don't know where I am."

The man consulted his portable GPS and replied, "You're in a hot air

balloon, approximately 30 feet above a ground elevation of 2346 feet above

sea level. You are at 31 degrees, 14.97 minutes north latitude and 100

degrees, 49.09 minutes west longitude."

She rolled her eyes and said, "You must be a DA supporter!"

"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 do with your information, and I'm still

lost. Frankly, you've not been much help to me."

The man smiled and responded, "You must be an ANC Government official"

"I am," replied the balloonist. "How did you know?"

"Well," said the man, "you don't know where you are or where you are going.

You've risen to where you are, due to a large quantity of hot air. You made

a promise that you have no idea how to keep, and you expect me to solve


problem. You're in exactly the same position you were in before we met,


somehow, now it's my fault?!"
