    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 seriously about this 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 th us 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 on the hood of the car, then drive off with the old friend for a few beers.

    ....God, I just love happy endings!

    Sounds like something you would do.

    None of the above. My mama told me never to pick up nobody unless I'm driving an 18 Wheeler with flames painted on the side of the engine!

    If that was on a job application I would have answered that I would not have had a second thought about passing them by and leaving all 3 on the bus stop so that I could get to work early because I am a dedicated employee who is a company oriented man ready willing and able to work.
