The balloonist

A man piloting hot air balloon discovers he’s hopelessly lost.
He descends to lower altitude and sees man on the ground. He lowers the balloon further and shouts:
“Excuse me, can you tell me where I am?”
The man below says, “Yes, you’re in hot air balloon, about 30 feet above this field.”
“You must work in Information Technology,” says the balloonist.
“Yes I do,” replies the man. “How did you know that?”
“Well, what you told me is technically correct, but of no use to anyone,” says the balloonist.
The man below says, “You must work in business.”
“I do, how did you know that,” shouts back the balloonist.
“Well,” says the man, “you don’t know where you are, or where you’re going, but you expect my immediate help.
“You’re in the same position you were in before we met, but now it’s my fault.”
