Thinking outside the Box. This is Interesting. Just test yourself. What would you do? This is a moral/ethical dilemma that was once actually used as part of a job application.
Just imagine this:

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:
  • An old lady who looks as if she is about to die.
  • An old friend who once saved your life.
  • 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..
  • Would you 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.
  • But 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 what we think must be dear to us. Someone once said that Our Happiness lies when we create Happiness to others.  And Blessed is the Hand that reach out to others.
