Job Interview Question You are driving along in your car on a wild, stormy night. 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 man (or) woman 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.
What if we could prevent just ONE child from suffering from POLIO?
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 dream lover again.
How much would that be worth? Click below and contact Dennis or José to learn more.
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 woman of my dreams." Never forget to "Think Outside of the Box."

Historic Moments: The Paul Harris Room By Susan Hanf Rotary International News -- 15 April 2011
On 19 April, Rotarians celebrate the birthday of Rotary’s founder, Paul P. Harris. And though we can’t say for certain whether the gifts on display in the Paul Harris Room were birthday presents, they do offer a glimpse into his life. Harris’s desk is the centerpiece of the room, located on the 16th floor of RI World Headquarters in Evanston, Illinois, USA. A 1935 gift from Australian Rotarians, it’s made from a variety of woods with an inlaid Rotary emblem in the corner. A polished wood desk set from the Rotary Club of North Sydney, New South Wales, Australia, and a small bison statue from the Rotary Club of Winnipeg, Manitoba, Canada, are among the many other artifacts on display. As president emeritus, a title he held until his death on 27 January 1947, Harris had an office at Rotary’s former headquarters in Chicago. There he kept many souvenirs from his travels around the world, along with gifts and awards, and photographs of his fellow Rotarians and Rotary activities. After his death, Harris’s wife, Jean, donated the contents of his office to Rotary, which now displays many of them in the Paul Harris Room. The room offers Rotarians an intimate glimpse into the life of Rotary’s charismatic founder. Visitors are welcome to view the room and a reproduction of Room 711, the meeting place of the first four Rotarians, at RI World Headquarters. For more information:
