You are driving along 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 always 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 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, shag the perfect partner senseless against the
bus stop, then drive off with the old friend for a few beers.

I prefer the correct answer myself

If I got that on a job application form then I reckon that's probably the kind of place I wouldn't want to work.

I thought that was the only answer

There is a wrong answer of course.

That's the one where you take the old lady to the hospital, and you best mate is left alone with your future ex

Here in the US, he could "shag" his best friend, go drinking with the old lady, and run over the good looking one and people would think he's perfectly normal. Then he could hire some bloodsucking lawyer like Johhny Cochran, John Edwards or Mark Geragos and get away with it scott free.
