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
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,

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

over and put her
out of her misery, shag the perfect partner against
the bus stop and
a beer with the old friend.
