Life is not a problem to be solved, but a gift to be enjoyed...

You are driving along in your car on a wild, stormy night, it's

raining heavily, when suddenly you pass by a bus stop, and you see

three people waiting for a bus:


1. An old lady who looks as if she is ab! out 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 very well 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 u! sed 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. Guess what was 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

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."

Love and Regards....
