Stolen from thebadguy's worth reading

A Test
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:
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 man (or) woman 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.
However, you may never be able to find your perfect dream lover again.
The candidate who was hired (out of 200 applicants) had no trouble coming
up with his answer. I love this, I may actually use it sometime for an
interview situation.
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 woman of my dreams."
Never forget to "Think Outside of the Box."
