Such moments use to be saved in memories of family members for always but even then they cannot show it to the child on being older in age who was the prime attraction in such memories.
What job was this an interview question for?
The question was, "Which one would you take?" The question was NOT "What would you do?"
Wording in questions like these are a bigger limitation then what we place on ourselves. It forces you to think a certain way, because you're expected to follow the guidelines set. Or at least you think you are, and it changes the overall outcome.
I always said to have the old friend take the lady to the hospital, and stay behind with the man, of your dreams :)
ill stay in my box thank you.
You should read this.
"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."
That made me smile. But the kid who added his own answer was hilarious. Read that part at the end, as well. Haha!
From the page: "Thinking Outside The Box
You are driving down the road in your car on a wild, stormy night, when you pass 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.
The candidate who was hired (out of 200 applicants) had no trouble coming up with his answer. She 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."
However, the correct answer is to run the old lady over and put her out of her misery, have sex with the perfect partner against the bus stop, then drive off with the old friend for some beers.
God, I just love happy endings."
Wow... I picked the right answer. Cool.
Wow, that was rather creative. Well... then again I'm doing quite a few things at once right now...
