Sponsors / sponsee's and hot air balloons

cute joke:

 A man in a hot air balloon realises he is lost. He reduces his

altitude and spots a man below. He gets closer and then yells,

“Excuse me!, can you help? I promised to be somewhere over
half an hour ago and I have no idea where I am!”

The man replies “Yes, you are in a hot air ballloon, hovering 30

feet above the ground. You are at latitude 42 degrees north and

longitude 80 degrees west.”

“You must be a sponsor” said the balloonist. “I am” said the man

on the ground, “how did you know?”

“Well”, said the lost man, “everything you’ve told me is technically

correct, but I have no idea what to make of your information

and the fact is that I’m still lost.”

The sponsor replies “You must be a sponsee.” The reply “How

did you know?”

“Well”, said the sponsor, you don’t know where you are, or

where you are going, you made a promise you don’t know how

to keep and you expect me to fix the problem. The fact is that

you are in the same position you were in before we met, but

now somehow, it’s my fault.”
