Another Dilemma

Think outside the box!

You are driving along in your car on a wild, stormy night.

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 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. However, you may never be able to find your perfect dream lover
again.

The candidate who was hired (out of 2000 applicants) had no trouble
coming up with an answer.

WHAT DID HE SAY?

He simply answered: "I would give the car keys to my old friend, and
let him take the lady to the hospital. And I would stay behind and wait
for the bus with the woman 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, sh*g the perfect partner against the bus stop and
drive off for a beer with the old friend.

I've heard it before, with a few variations. The car was a two seater was because it was a sports car.

My reaction was "Why the heck would one drive a sport car in a storm ?"
