Would YOU have passed this test?

22 Dec

Here’s a mid-week chuckle for you. 🙂

Chris The Story Reading Ape's Blog

You are driving down the road in your Corvette 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.

      Yes, that’s awfully superficial. Just imagine if Ms. Perfect had been having a really bad day (ie. curling iron died, contacts MIA, in her least favorite dress, a heel broke on her way there…), she could look a bit of a fright and not at all approachable. Mr. Superficial would just give his card to Buddy and take the lady to the hospital.
      Then Ms. Bad Day settles for Bland Rand from HR, they have 2 kids and a terrier and she wonders where her life could have gone while he’s tending his room sized model golf course in the basement.
      Wow. Apparently I should see if I can get some creative writing done today. lol

    Before reading the end: None. Because it is illegal to give rides to people sitting at a bus stop.

    Laws aside: None. I might technically be able to fit one more person in the car, but they will be wedged between two booster seats. Trust me: It would not be a kindness.

      Bahaha! I have been that person! It can be very fun or quite torturous depending on the family and (especially) the little occupants’ moods.

    Ha! But the official answer is pretty brilliant. Still. The likelihood of finding me in the car without kids is slim and I am NOT letting someone just drive off with my kiddos so I can schmooze a dreamboat, life-saving aside.

      Yes, in reality that would be my case as well. lol Having children really tips a lot of things into a different perspective. 🙂
