Sportbike: Working on it...
Years Riding: Hmm... let me see....
How you found us: Google

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 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 mate again.

The candidate who was hired (out of 200 applicants) had
no trouble coming up with 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.'

HOWEVER...., The correct answer is to run the old lady
over and put her out of her misery because she has a prexisting
condition and doesn't have health care , have sex with the perfect
partner on the hood of the car, then drive off with the
old friend for a few beers.

I just love happy endings!

The real art of conversation is not only to say the right thing at the right time, but also to leave unsaid the wrong thing at the tempting moment.
