Think Outside Your 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.

  1. You could pick up the old lady, because she is going to die,
    and thus you should save her first; or

  2. you could take the old friend because he once saved your life,
    and this would be the perfect chance to pay him back.

  3. 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.

THINK ABOUT IT BEFORE YOU SCROLL DOWN. THINK THINK THINK! WHAT DID HE SAY?

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."

.

Sometimes, we gain more if we are able to give up our stubborn thought limitations.
Never forget to "Think Outside of the Box."

I'll do things a little differently ....

I would drive the old lady to the hospital ... for I am sure that my friend , being the samaritan that he was before will understand the situation and approve of my actions ... for the bus will come anyway ...

The man of my dreams will also understand -that is , if he is the man of my dreams ... and I shall hand him my visitation card ....( Leaving it up to him therefore to call ... approve or disapprove of my actions ) ... If he does approve , then he will be the man of my dreams ... if he does not call ... I'll know that he was not the man of my dreams at all ... ...
