Title: 3 people question of values
Post by: The Holy namelesskitty on September 25, 2010, 06:18:02 PM
you drive past a bus stop with no roof, and see three people sitting on a bench in the rain, an old lady who looks like she is dying, a loyal friend who once saved your life and the person of your dreams, there is only enough room in your car for one passenger, who do you take? don't do anything fancy, I want a single answer, not a complex plan.

The person who looks like they're dying. Knowing my friends, they would understand and would probably help me get the person in the car. Knowing the person of my dreams (that term is too strong, but whatever) they would understand, too.

I see, I would pick my friend, because I'm loyal, I'm compassionate, but I don't even know her.

So you have no love for those you don't know?

That's the thing about my friends. They are compassionate too, so they would understand it if I left them to save a life.

I know but I think that there is a part that I forgot due to this outcome always happening, I am looking at the puzzle it says that the old lady wronged you badly in the past. Add that in.

I would still help the old lady. It's in my nature.

I understand, I almost chose that too.

Huh. Everyone seems to have dumped the person of their dreams.

I thought about it. Voted it. But changed it.

Or just really caring people.

Or most likely both.

Yeah most likely both.

I say that there's no way I'm letting an old lady who's done me wrong in the past in my car. Loyal friend all the way.

I mean, if I saw an old lady dying, I'd call 911. That's what everyone is supposed to do, right?

Who said anything about the old lady doing you wrong in the past?

The Holy Nameless did. He should update the poll though to include it though.

Done.

Post by: cyso on September 26, 2010, 05:32:40 PM
Oh. Well, if the old lady was about to die, I think I would still help her. Whatever she did to offend me cannot be as bad as me leaving her to die.

My thoughts exactly. 'nuf said.

I think that saving a dying women is much more important than keeping a friend/gf out of the rain. IMO, this isn't even a hard choice. However, if we get complicated, i'd call her an ambulance, then put her in my car and begin to drive towards the hosipital

I see. There are a lot of people who think that.
