Something to think about

26 Oct 2011

Here is a tough question for you:

You are driving down the road in your car on a wild, stormy night, when you pass
by a bus stop and you see three people waiting for the bus:

1. An old lady who looks as if she is about to die.

2. An old friend who once saved your life.

3. The perfect partner you have been dreaming about.

Which one would you choose to offer a ride to, knowing that there could only be
one passenger in your car?

Think before you continue reading.

This is a moral/ethical dilemma that was once actually used as part of a job application.
You could pick up the old lady, because she is going toddy, and thus you should
save her first. Or you could take the old friend because he once saved your life,
and this would be the perfect chance to pay him back. However, you may never be
able to find your perfect mate again.

The candidate who was hired (out of 200 applicants) had no trouble coming
up with his answer. He simply answered: “I would give the car keys to my
old friend and let him take the lady to the hospital. I would stay behind
and wait for the bus with the partner of my dreams.”

Sometimes, we gain more if we are able to give up our stubborn thought
limitations. Never forget to “Think Outside of the Box.”

However, the correct answer is to run the old lady over and put her out of
her misery, have sex with the perfect partner against the bus stop, then
drive off with the old friend for some beers.
