Moral/Ethical Dilemma      Jokes  /  Home

Thanks to Mary Lou for sending this one!

You are driving down the road 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

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 our 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 old 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."


The correct answer is to run the old lady over and put her out of her

misery, have sex with the perfect partner on the hood of the car,

then drive off with the old friend for a few beers.
