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:
- An old lady who looks as if she is about to die.
2… An old friend who once saved your life.
- The perfect p artner 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 small car? Think before you continue reading.
This is a moral/ethical dilemma that was once
actually used as part of a job
You could pick up the old lady, because she is going to die, 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.
< BR>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 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 on the hood of the car,
then drive off with the old friend for a few beers!
… God, I just love happy endings.
