    The Killer Question


    Job Interview - the 'Killer Question'

    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 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 ...answer will be posted soon

    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 she once saved your life, and this would be the perfect chance to pay her 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.

    He simply answered:

    "I would give the car keys to my old friend and let
    her take the lady to the hospital. I would stay behind and wait for the bus with the man/woman 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 man/woman against the bus stop and drive off with the old friend for some beers.

    Great example of what used to commonly be called "lateral thinking." "Thinking outside the box" is the term today, but yeah, love the message. Also love option B:lol: :evil: :smokin:
