Helping others is a post on another thread I know, but when I received this I thought it was worth posting;

If you're under 18 please do not read.


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 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

Never forget to "Think Outside of the Box."


The correct answer is

to run the old lady over and put her out of her misery,

make love with the perfect partner at the bus stop,

then drive off with the old friend for some beers.

I leave it to the forum moderator as to whether this remain or is deleted from the forum.

The best thing about the perfect partner is, she would be cool with all that.

There's no moral dilemna, just a question of bad taste.

In that you've worked so hard and have achieved your goal I would leave this here as an example of same.
