You have a job in this scenario. It pays alright. You get a lead that this other company is paying 50% more. You hop, skip and haul ass over there and are hitting it off really well with the boss. At some point in the interview, some guy comes in to have him sign something important, and the boss lays into him about not liking the font, and utterly insults and emasculates him in front of you for this error. Before the interview ends, the receptionist intercoms in, saying that his mother is on the phone, and he angrily YELLS are her to stop interrupting him and do her fucking job. This guy's apparently a complete tyrannical asshole. He then offers you the job, at indeed 50% more than your current salary. Do you take it?

There's a seminar/party/whatever where there's a lot of new people. No one really knows anyone, and you're encouraged to mingle. If no one tends to look extremely interesting, who do you probably end up talking to first?

Margaret Cho said that in any group of 3 girls, there's always 3 different types. The smart one, the nice one...and the 'ho.' Ladies, when you're out with the girls, which one would you be considered? This is compared to the other girls

You have a job for this hypothetical. You like it and the people. You screw up on some major thing on the job and you get called into your boss' office. He/she seats you down and says, ordinarily, I would fire you outright. Your fuckup costs the company a lot of money. However, I was involved in an...accident. I hit a homeless guy, killing him. I had been drinking that night, and I sped off, not thinking clearly. Someone saw my license plate and reported it to the cops. An investigation has been started regarding this hideous crime, of which I am sorry, but I do not want to go to jail. I lack an alibi. Here's where you can keep your job. I want you to be my alibi. Say you went to a show with me. I can score ticket stubs of the night in question, to back up our story. I'd ask someone else but I know I can't count on any of my friends or family. Agree to be my alibi, and you can keep your job and I'll give you $20,000. Otherwise, you're fired. What do you do?

I accept his offer and give him his alibi. We all make mistakes and I need the money

I accept his offer , but turn him in once I get the money
15(8.8%)
I refuse to take the offer. I take my pink slip knowing that it's the decent thing to do

It's too big a decision! I hyperventilate there in his office until he realizes what a bad liar I am. He probably fires me and retracts the offer
