What Would You Do?

See if you can figure this out. I'll post the answer later in the week.

You are driving along in your car on a wild, stormy night. You pass by abus 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 man (or) woman you have been dreaming about all of your life.

Which one would you choose to offer a ride to, knowing that there couldonly be one passenger in your car? Think before you continue reading.

This is a moral/ethical dilemma that was once used as part of a job application.

You could pick up the old lady, because she is going to die, and thusyou should save her first; or you could take the old friend because heonce saved your life, and this would be the perfect chance to pay himback. However, you may never be able to find your perfect dream loveragain.

The candidate who was hired (out of 200 applicants) had no troublecoming up with his answer.
