Suddenly a brand new Jeep Cherokee screeches to a halt next to him. The driver, a young man dressed in a Brioni suit, Cerrutti shoes, Ray-Ban glasses, and a YSL tie gets out and asks the sheperd: - If I guess how many sheep you do have, you give me one of them? The shepherd looks at the young man, then looks at the sheep which graze and says: - All right. The young man parks the car, connects the notebook and the mobile, enters a NASA site, scans the ground using his GPS, opens a data base and 60 Excel tables filled with algorithms, then prints a 150-pages 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 the sheep and puts in the back of his jeep. The sheperd looks at him and asks: - If I guess your profession, will you return my sheep to me? The young man answers: - Yes, why not. The shepherd says: - You are an Arthur Andersen 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 do not understand anything about what I do, because you took my dog!
