Think Outside of the Box

You are driving along in your car on a wild, stormy night, it's raining heavily, when suddenly you pass by a bus stop, and you see three people waiting for a 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 very well 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 application) had no trouble coming up with his answer. Guess what.....

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"


My daughter...

When God created my daughter, he took very special care
To find the precious treasures that would make her sweet and fair...

He gave her smiles of angels, then explored the midnight skies
And took a bit of stardust to make bright and twinkling eyes...

He fashioned her from sugar and a little bit of spice
He gave her sunny laughter and everything that is nice...

God smiled when he made daughters, because he knew he had
Created love and happiness for every mom and dad!

The woman in your life...

When you marry a working woman, you should marry with these facts as well.

Here is a girl, who is as much educated as you are;

Who is earning almost as much as you do;

One, who has dreams and aspirations just as you have because she is as human as you are;

One, who has never entered the kitchen in her life just like you or your sister haven't,as she was busy in studies and competing in a system that gives nospecial concession to girls for their culinary achievements;

One, who has lived and loved her parents & brothers & sisters, almost asmuch as you do for 20-25 years of her life;

One, who has bravely agreed to leave behind all that, her home, people who love her, to adopt your home,your family, your ways and even your family name;

One, who is somehow expected to be a master-chef from day #1, while yousleep oblivious to her predicament in her new circumstances, environment and that kitchen ;

One, who is expected to make the tea, first thing in the morning and cookfood at the end of the day, even if she is as tired as you are, maybe more,and yet never ever expected to complain; to be a servant, a cook, a mother, a wife, even if she doesn't want to;and is learning just like you are as to what you want from her;and is clumsy and sloppy at times and knows that you won't like it if she is too demanding,or if she learns faster than you;

One, who has her own set of friends, and that includes boys and even men at her workplace too, those,who she knows from school days and yet is willing to put all that on the back-burnersto avoid your irrational jealousy, unnecessary competition and your inherent insecurities;

Yes, she can drink and dance just as well as you can, but won't,simply because you won't like it, even though you say otherwise;

One, who can be late from work once in a while when deadlines, just like yours, are to be met;

One, who is doing her level best and wants to make this most important relationship in her entire lifea grand success, if you just help her some and trust her;

One, who just wants one thing from you, as you are the only one she knows in your entire house -your unstinted support, your sensitivities and most importantly - your understanding, or love, if you may call it.

How truely do guys understand and respect these facts?
