[Jokes] Out of the Box

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:

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.

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 200 applicants) had no trouble
coming up with his answer. I love this, I may actually use it
sometime for an interview situation.


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 woman of my dreams."

Never forget to "Think Outside of the Box."
