    Ethical Dilemma

    You are driving down the road in your car on a wild, stormy night, when 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 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 This is a moral/ethical dilemma that was

    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

    Sometimes, we gain more if we are able to give up our stubborn thought
    limitations. Never forget to "Think outside of the Box."

    HOWEVER.. what you might do is decide . . . .

    The correct answer is to run the old lady over and put her out of her
    misery, have sex with the perfect partner on the hood of the car, then drive
    off with the old friend for a few beers.

    Damn, I just love happy endings!

    Thinking outside of the box can be very helpful sometimes.
