Who Will You Choose?

Let's Have Another Brain Test.

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:
An old lady who looks as if she is about to die.
An old friend who once saved your life.
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.

Old Friend, Your Dream Girl, or Sick Old Lady

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."

Fun or Not:

LOL. That was good. I would have picked up my old friend, atleast before I found out about the better answer.

Awesome, pure excellence. I'm not gonna lie and said I would have said the same thing, nice question and great answer. I would have picked the girl of my dreams because I have no heart :P. I'm gonna ask this to my friends when I get the chance.

i wpuld have picked the girl.
because: 1. the old woman is nearly dead anyway (i know, it dont got heart),
2. not the old friend, cause saving a life and giving a ride (even in a stormy night) is not the same level. that means we would not be a way to pay him back.

what do u think about this?
