Computer Consultants - Sound familiar?
Once upon a time there was a shepherd looking after his sheep on the edge of a deserted road. Suddenly a brand new Jeep Grand Cherokee screeches to a halt next to him. The driver, a young man dressed in a Armani suit, Cerrutti shoes, Ray-Ban glasses, and a YSL tie gets out and asks the shepherd, "If I can guess how many sheep you do have, will you give me one of them?"
The shepherd looks at the young man, then looks at the grazing sheep and says, "All right."
The young man parks his vehicle, connects his notebook PC to the mobile telephone in the jeep, enters a NASA site, uses a thermal imager to scan the pasture, opens a database and 60 Excel sheets filled with algorithms, then prints a 150-page report on his high-tech mini-printer. He then turns to the shepherd and says, "You have exactly 1586 sheep here."
The shepherd answers, "That's correct, you can have your sheep."
The young man takes one of the sheep and puts in the back of his jeep.
The shepherd looks at him and asks, "If I can guess your profession, will you return my sheep to me?"
The young man answers, "Sure, why not."
The shepherd says, "You are a consultant!"
"How did you know?" asks the young man.
"Very simple," answers the shepherd. "First, you come here without being called. Second, you charge me a sheep to tell me something I already knew. Third, you don't understand anything about what I do, because you took my dog."
