A shepherd heads his flock of sheep on a beautiful pasture when, in a cloud of dust, a brand new Jeep Cherokee stops near him. The driver, a young guy wearing a Hugo Boss suit, Gucci shoes, Ray Ban sunglasses and YSL tie, heads out the window and says:
-If I tell you exactly how many sheep you have in your flock, will you give me one of them?
The shepherd looks at the young man, then looks at the flock and calmly answers:
The young man parks the car, pulls out his laptop and connects it to his cellphone. It accesses NASA via the Internet, then the GPS satellite, scans the area, opens the database and a few pages of EXCEL 60 full of formulas, then prints through the latest generation of portable printer a 150 page report and tells the shepherd:
-You have exactly 1,586 sheep!
-That is correct and I agree you take one of the sheep.
He looks calmly at the young man as he picks out a sheep and carries it to the car, then says:
-If I tell you exactly what business you are in, will you give me the sheep back?
-Yes, why not?
-You are a consultant.
-That is correct, but how did you guess?
-Easily, says the shepherd, you came here without being invited, you demanded to get paid for a question that I never asked and gave me an information that I already knew! On top of that, you have no idea about my business.
-How did you come to that conclusion?
-Because you took my dog.
