Thinking Outside The Box 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 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 mate again.



Post your answer here and we'll see who has the correct answer on Sunday PM!!

You call an ambulance on your cell phone for the lady who is about to die. You offer your friend a ride, but ask him to drive. You ride shotgun and the girl sits on your lap.

I'll be at the bar if anyone needs me. :toast:

You give your old friend your car keys and have him drive the old lady to the hospital. You hang out with the woman of your dreams and wait for the bus.

Good thing this hypothetical didn't start "You're driving your Mastercraft on a stormy river when......" cuz nobody is gonna give away the keys to their Mastercraft.

Mind if I join you East Texas? I'm a little parched myself.

Dude, I'm hurt by the personal attack.

I didn't cheat.

It's often been said that "Great minds think alike."

I've noticed quite a few great minds on the TMC board.

Someday I hope to even be in that group.

:D

You give your car to your friend, and he'll take the old lady. Then you get out and spend the rest of your life with your dream chick. There's still only one "passenger" in your car.

I'll bet you could stuff one in the trunk ... I'd leave my buddy, and if the old lady won't fit in the trunk I'll let him in! Also, depends on who the JOB INTERVIEW was with, plus what the F*ck is my buddy doing at a bus stop in a storm ... he deserves to get sick, the old lady better be my mom, or the mom to the lady of my dreams, no way I am leaving the girl of my dreams there with my buddy ... he can drive the old lady home if it comes to that!

If he is a real buddy - he'd understand why you took the "love of your life". ;)

Ok, Ok, sorry for the delay....

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."

"Think Outside of the Box."

I hate that expression. It was overused by everybody. Heck even Taco Bell got in on it: "Think outside the bun." :rolleyes:

Totally agree Brian.
I'm also getting tired of BS mission statements.
