think outside the box...

JobInterview Question

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

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
