I found this at Urban Scrawl

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 woman (or man) of your dreams.

There can only be one passenger in your car and you can’t return to the bus stop once you have left it. Which one would you choose to offer a ride to?

Think before you answer. This is a moral / ethical dilemma that was once actually used as part of a job selection process, so your future could depend on how you answer this question.

What would you do?

I posted the answer at comment #29

    Stop and call 911 and have your friend stay with the old lady until help arrives (since you already know that he can save a life), then he can take the taxi that you call and pay for, while you’re driving off with the woman of your dreams.

    How is this a moral/ethical question?

    The friend who once saved your life is not in any danger, other than getting wet.
    Neither is the “woman of your dreams”(although I can’t imagine how you would know that without getting to know her first).

    They are in no danger.
    The old woman is.

    Where is the moral/ethical part, unless you are such a self-absorbed cretin that you would even have to think about this question?

    If this was a Seinfeld episode, you’d just drive away.
    Like most self-absorbed liberals would.

    liberals get accused of being overly emotional and obsessive of their version of society’s welfare. Ignoring a seriously ill old lady does not fit into that model (or that of any decent person).

    1) She’s about to die anyway, so why would I want to risk picking her up and having her check out in the car? Not only will you never get the smell out, but there is positively no end to the paperwork resulting from it.

    2) If he was capable of saving my life once, then he ought to be able to save his own as well.

    3) What exactly is my wife doing standing at a bus stop in the middle of the night? Well, since she’s a damn good shot, I’d better pick her up then.

    See? That was easy.

    Chopped or diced,I can get all three in the car.

    Seriously though, get EMS for the lady, stay with my buddy and the hottie until the bus shows up and make sure they are alright. Failing that, my buddy. My debt to him outweighs my own possible happiness with the hottie, assuming she will be safe once I and my buddy leave (All of this is only after the old lady is safe and secure in the ambulance).

    But of course, if he is really my buddy, he’ll take care of the old lady and give me a rubber for the hottie :em95:

    You could always strap the old lady to the roof of the car, ala Chevy Chase in “Vacation”, tie your friend to the bumber, also ala Chevy Chase in “Vacation”, and then take the hottie skinny dippin’ in a motel pool, also ala Chevy Chase in “Vacation”.

    That one’s easy. Give my car to my buddy and have him drive the old lady home.

    Seems pretty well nailed, there… You call 911 you’re deferring responsibility, and leaving anyone in the rain isn’t optimal (for the married, substitute someone you really respect and would love to meet but is in no danger and has no prior relationship to you)

    The question is an ethical conceit which reduces to which do you pick- the altruistic responsibility (sick old woman), the personal debt (the buddy) or the selfish desire (hottie).

    The car-buddy solution is absolutely perfect. You discharge your altruistic and personal responsibilities while still getting your selfish opportunity all the while looking looking good to the opportunity, because you’ve done the right thing.

    (unless hottie is a selfish bitch and doesn’t appreciate your altruism, at which point you can walk home and try to think ‘two outta three ain’t bad’ and ‘I did the right thing’ while water fills your boots.)

    I’d show up , and my buddy would tell me to get rid of that old lady so he could keep working the girl.

    OregonGuy nailed it.

    I found this over at Urban Scrawl. Here was the answer of the guy the company hired:

    I would give the car keys to my old friend and let him take the old lady to the hospital while I waited in the rain for the bus with the woman / man of my dreams.

    He goes on to say this, along with the ULTIMATE correct answer:

    The moral of the story is that we can gain more if we are able to give up our stubborn thought limitations and ‘think outside the box’.

    Of course nobody came up with the ultimate correct answer, which is, of course, to run over the old lady and put her out of her misery, shag the perfect woman silly on the bonnet of the car, and then drive off with your old friend to the nearest pub to get drunk and talk about old times.

    Y’all are kidding me, right? Save the old woman because she’s in danger or need? Seriously? Where’s the logic in that. You have the right answer, but not the right reasoning. You save the old woman using the process of elimination:

    1. Your friend probably remembers that he saved your rear and wants money for something. You’ve already bought token after token of appreciation, but like a crack whore on welfare, he just can’t let it go. Now he needs money for a car, or help with the house payment because he pissed the money away in a casino in Jersey. Run his ass over to make sure he doesn’t ask for money again and to save his widow and kids the embarrassment of his showing up on COPS.

    2. There is no such thing as a perfect woman. No matter how good she may look or act, you will eventually get tired of her psychotic bullshit and will eat your own intestines if it will get you away from her whiney ass, especially after she’s racked up 15k in ebay bills on dresses that she can’t wear, because no matter how many times she argues, she’s not the size 6 she thinks she is and dammit, you’re just a mean rotton worthless assed son of a bitch for suggesting that it’s the 10 Big Macs she’s eaten over the last week and not the recent changes in dress sizing she read about on i-village. Therefore save the heartache and run her over the same time you run your former friend down.

    That leaves:

    3. Save the old woman and see if you can’t just get in on her will…

    See easy!

    Speaking of nice handling, while night-driving the Z06 from Georgia to Okieland, I almost plowed two Alabama deer standing in the middle of I-20. (I know what you’re thinking, and yep, they looked just like deer in the headlights.) With a quick jerk of the steering wheel, I cleared them with a little room to spare. Had I been in any of my other vehicles, I would still be picking auto glass and deer fur out of my teeth. Almost had to change the underoos, though…

    Its a trick question.

    I’m lucky enough to be married to the woman of my dreams. She’d either be in the seat next to me or at home. The friend gets the ride because who knows what the old lady’s motivations are?

    Cruel? I don’t think so. “Fidus et Audax” is a way of life in my house.

    This is a moral / ethical dilemma that was once actually used as part of a job selection process, so your future could depend on how you answer this question.

    I probably wouldn’t get the job. Especially after I wadded up the paper, set it on fire, shoved it down the mindless HR hack’s throat and stapled his lips together.

    Reminds me of the IQ test that showed a a couple of pictures of a man. In one he’s chopping firewood and in the second he’s reading a book. Question is which shows the man working and which shows him relaxing. Kid answers the man reading the book is working and the guy chopping wood is relaxing. The teacher marks it wrong and later asks the kid why he got that particular question wrong. Turns out his dad was a teacher and read books for work and relaxed by getting in some physical exercise.

    Psychological tests can be misused very easily and the result you get may bear little resemblance to the actual state of mind of the person answering them.

    Deej, I’m gonna try sumpin, don’t shoot m’kay?

    In the Northeast, I’ve been appalled at how little respect deer have for bad driving conditions. Sheet of ice–does that stop them? No–trot right out onto the road.

    Glad you weren’t hurt.

    Thanks, PsychoC! Clipping two 100-120lb deer with a car that sits as low to the ground as a Corvette? I am certain if I had hit them at the 65 or 70mph I was going, both would have ended up in my lap and I’d be at ambient temperature right now.

    Deer are funny critters. Last night I watched 3 does and a yearling ease out of the woods and into a field I just brush-hogged. They watched every move I made and you could tell they were very uneasy. Deer are, essentially, one big bundle of nerves connected to a nose, eyes and ears. They spook at the slightest of sounds or movements. YET… they will stand perfectly still in the middle of an interstate highway with cars and tractor-trailer rigs passing by! Go figure. Oh, and during the rut, all bets are off! The bucks are so intoxicated by phero”moans” they do all manner of crazy, unsafe things, like ignoring the presence of a hunter. :em93: Just don’t have your clothes saturated with “Doe in Estrus” urine during that time of the year or you’ll end up as the love interest of a very aggressive, HORN(-ED) (-EY) animal!

    Remember - When the bucks are in rut, watch your butt!

    Major - I don’t know about the deer winding up in your lap, Corvettes are ramps with wheels, you’d have probably launched them about 10 feet in the air.

    Speaking of deer, I have an uncle who was chased out of a cornfield by a buck during rutting season one year.

    Clintondale, PA - 17 Nov 2006: 7-point Buck Attacks, Seriously Injures Couple

    Police intervention is credited with saving the lives of an elderly couple in this central Pennsylvania town, after a deer attack on 15 November. The 7-point buck threatened a woman when she tried to go into her backyard to feed cats. When a man in the house attempted to chase the deer away, the buck repeatedly charged and gored him.

    State Police Cpl. Todd A. Brian and Trooper Stephen E. Wilcox responded and found the deer attacking the woman, who had entered the backyard in an attempt to stop the deer from attacking the man. Brian had to wrestle the deer away by its antlers.The troopers finally shot the and killed the deer.

    Both residents of the house were seriously injured, police said.

    If you’re thinking about making a drinkin’ buddy smell like a red hot doe during the rut, you’d better be covering his “deer-sexy” six with a magnum revolver.

    Actually, I was trying to be polite to someone I consider to be a huge cork in the asshole of progress.

    You have this fixation about man-on-man oral sex, which makes me wonder about your repressed sexual tendencies.

    I don’t know if you sit in front of that monitor and fantasize about oral sex with men, but it is unhealthy. Go find a (willing) man to explore you fantasies, and maybe you be so preoccupied with it here.

    I’m not saying you have to be as flamboyant as Freddie Mercury was, but maybe you should act on your fantasy if for nothing else but to get it out of your system.

    Yeah, I noticed that. Where I come from, this is what we had for deer. You can run them over with a Big Wheel :)
