.THE BUS STOP QUIZ

.
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:

An old lady who looks as if she is about to die.
An old friend who once saved your life.
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.

WHAT DID HE SAY? 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 woman of my dreams."

Right answer..

Right answer..



No its not. No right answer. :-) As I said the best friend can't drive so they'll have one big insurance claim on their hands when he crashes the old dear into a wall. At least that she'll get an ambulance straight to the hospital :whistling:

how do you find out how many views the thread has got?



Not sure for the proper way of doing it. I just see the number of views showing up in the control panel after the details of the subscribed thread when it has a response.

Yeah the supposed right answer is that give by snowtiger. But i was just putting my tuppence worth in. No one said the friend could drive, so i looked at it the other way in the fact that he was waiting at a bus stop he may not have a licence. just to throw a spanner in the works.
Its just one of those theoretical type questions employers ask to find out if you can think "outside the box".:thumbsup:

i would run them all over then crash the car killing myself so we can all live in heaven together forever
