Arthur Andersen consultant

Once upon a time there was a shepherd looking after his sheep on the edge of a deserted road.

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 shepherd: 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 it in the back of his jeep.

The shepherd 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, to tell me something I already knew. Third, you do not understand anything about what I do, because you took my dog!
