For people who don't want to bother sitting through a lame 3-minute video, here is the dilemma:

You're driving in your car during a thunderstorm. You find three people waiting at a bus stop: The perfect woman ("the woman of your dreams"), and old friend who once saved your life, and a sick old lady "in critical condition." What do you do? And all of this is apparently a job interview question.

=========================

Smart Dude's answer:

I run over the old lady to put her out of her misery, and then find a way to pin the murder on my old friend. I pick up the hot babe, give her a nice dicking in my car and then kick her out back into the storm. Where's the dilemma?

BTW, the "right" answer is pretty retarded. First of all if it's storming, you should probably be focusing on the road and not ogling babes waiting at a bus stop. Whatever, never mind that. But seriously, what kind of creepy asshole literally gives his car away just so he can force some woman to sit with a total stranger in the rain? If I were her I'd be freaked the fuck out.

Oh and finally, people wait a bus stops ALL THE FUCKING TIME. Sometimes it rains. Big deal. It's a fucking BUS STOP. A fucking BUS is coming. These people can take care of themselves. It's not a big deal.

If the driver isn't so concerned about getting his dick wet, this wouldn't even be a dilemma at all. Let the two healthy grown-ass adults wait for their damn bus, and drive grandma to the hospital yourself if it's such a giant emergency.

Wonder why neither the hot babe or my old friend called 911 for the old lady in critical condition and keep driving. Logically, if the old lady is indeed in bad shape, 2 adults are right there with her, both with cell phones, who could contact emergency services to pick the lady up.


If for some reason I knew that a bus was never coming... My car seats 4. All 3 of them could theoretically load into my car. I would stop for the friend and offer the other 2 phone calls or rides if their destination wasn't too far out of my way.

"Did you get it right?"

Yes, because the right answer is, "Pedo Rod's 'moral dilema' is poorly thought out and fucking retarded, and although he thinks himself clever for the post, it actually reveals how idiotic Pedo Rod is."

If you replaced the "perfect woman" with an unsupervised young boy, this would be a really simple question for Hot Rod. Pull over, load the boy into the trunk, and head to the nearest motel.

Let the friend drive, put the girl on my lap and throw the old lady in the trunk

w/ 'right answer'

your old friend gets pissed off that you think giving him the task of driving an old lady to a hospital (against her will probably) then having to return your car later is payback for saving your life, so he trashes your car then never speaks to you again

and the woman thinks you're a controlling dick for kidnapping the woman & sending her to the hospital based on your diagnosis from a moving car in the rain

The only way that accosting a stranger at a bus stop would in getting your dick wet is if rape were invovled. I guess it's convenient that the only potential witnesses just drove off in the car.

"That was so obvious."

What was obvious? The "right" answer? The "right" answer is silly. You pull up to a bus stop. You see a person literally dying before your eyes. Most normal people's priority would be to get this person to a hospital ASAP. They don't think, "hmm, how can I save this lady and still get to fuck this girl?" That's creepy and weird. If you pull this shit in real life, you're friend is going to think "umm, wtf, why is he asking me to drive his car?" and this "perfect" woman will be equally freaked out and uncomfortable that she now must wait with you alone in the rain. No reasonable person would do that.

Seb once again proves he is on the spectrum. Yes, the answer is obvious, but it's not the one in the OP.

As the thread title says, this is a "moral dilemma." The question isn't "how can I be moral and still try to pick up this strange girl I don't know, whom I feel entitled too?"

Smart dude:

*sigh* I think you proves you are on the spectrum actually.

This immediately looked like one of those dumb "trick answer" type questions and the "right answer" is obvious. It is clearly not a moral dilemma in the vein of say, the trolley problem, and is highly contrived.
Bullshit it's an interview question. It's a clickbaitt gotcha riddle with a smart alec answer like "your house is on fire with your family. You can take one thing out of it, and that thing can be absolutely anything. Ok, I'll take the fire out" har har har.

The framing the girl is highlighted as a legitimate option (if there was no other people, would it be immoral to offer the girl a lift?). The immoral thing would be abandoning the woman or your friend to do so. So how do we make everyone happy?

No, this was clearly made up with this answer in mind.

"No, this was clearly made up with this answer in mind."

Completely agree, and I agree with everything you just said, really. Or it's like one of those "If you were on death row, what would your last meal be?" "Durrr, a stick of dynamite so I could blow a hole out of my prison cell and escape." Just bullshit.

I just refuse to accept this kind of BS interview question (fake in this case) as some dumbass HR moron's clever puzzle. So why not just give the real answer instead of the "obvious" answer that the question was designed to accept?

This was actually a question in a job interview.

It is designed to see if the person can think outside of the box.

Smart dude:

I just don't think there's an answer to give, it's not a serious question and nobody to give it to.

I said obvious because I'd sussed it out pretty much by the time we'd established the three people in question.

In the real world, you'd obviously offer a lift to the old lady. A lift is hardly "paying your buddy back, and if he saved your life he's not going to object to you taking an old lady home or to hospital.

"This was actually a question in a job interview."

Source? If this was actually a job interview I'd love to see which company it was for.

"It is designed to see if the person can think outside of the box."

No, it was designed for simpletons on Facebook to have their "minds blown."

A moral dilemma

I may be the most pretty man walking on earth.

Should I only have sex with my wife and make her happy?
Or should I cheat on my wife and make myriads of wo*men happy?
