Once upon a time there was a shepherd looking after his sheep on the edge of a deserted road. Suddenly a brand new BMW 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 shepherd: - "If I guess how many sheep you have, will you give me one of them?"
The shepherd looks at the young man, then looks at the sheep grazing and says: - "All right".
The young man parks the car, connects his Toshiba 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"
The shepherd answers: - "That's correct, you can take your sheep."
The young man takes a sheep and puts in the back of his BMW. The shepherd looks at him and asks: - "If I guess your profession, will you return my animal to me?"
The young man answers: - "Yes, 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 do not understand anything about what I do, because you took my dog!"
