    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

    > 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, have sex with the perfect partner against the bus stop,
    then
    > drive off with the old friend for some beers.
