The manager then replied, "You must be an information specialist." "I am, replied the man. How did you know?" "Well answered the manager, everything you said is true, but I'm still lost. You've not been any help to me at all. In fact, you've delayed my trip."
The man on the porch replied, "You must be in management." "I am, replied the manager, how did you know?" "Well, replied the man, you don't know where you are or where you are going. You have obviously gotten this far with poor judgment and lack of preparation. You've made promises which you have no idea how to keep, and you expect others to get you where you need to be. You are in the same position you were in before you saw me, but now, it's entirely my fault."
