Question to Ponder.....

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.

I'd lend my friend the car to take the old lady to where she needs to go. Than I'd help that special lady to a safe place.

This is in fact the best answer ever given. It is the same that is documented worldwide. Well Done!!!!

That friend who saved my life woun't be shy of repeating such again.Yes,the answer has been wisely stated-give my friend the car to take the old woman to,possibly,hospital;and then start the lonely,lovely walk with that special one to a save hiding place.

You know what I would do:I would take the old lady first to where she wanted to go as she is the oldest, then I would come back and pick up my old friend asI owed him so much, and take him to his house and come back.If the perfect partner Ihad dreamed about had not already taken the bus I would then offer him a ride home. end of my story.

I'd probably take the old lady since that old friend would probably insist on it anyway. I would say I'd be back to check on them and make sure the bus had come.

I would choose the old friend. All old people look like they are about to die, so she wouldn't concern me. I would like to choose the perfect partner, but I don't think she would accept a ride from a complete stranger. That leaves my old friend as the only one left.

I would pick the old lady who looks as if she is about to die.

The old lady. I was taught to always respect your elders, and she's probably somebody's grandmother and all that. It's like driving down the road and seeing an older lady with a flat tire; my conscience absolutely will not let me pass. I have to stop and render assistance.

well I would give the old lady a ride. Then I would give the other two my phone number. I am sure they both would understand why I couldn't take them.

That is a tough one I have to say on the first 2 as they would come first but it would definatly be the old Lady and to the Hospital with her as no doubt I would always get a chance again to help the Friend

Hmmm..I think if there was absolutely no way I could get them all in my car, I would get the elderly lady to her place first, then come back for the friend. Then if that perfect partner was still there when I got done, I would come back for him. I think the elderly need to be considered first, and I think that the friend that saved my life would be considerate enough to understand that. No way would I take the perfect partner first...there are priorities in life.

I'd try and squeeze them all
