What Would You Do If … Dilemmas In A Zombie Apocalypse: No. 11 – The Boyfriend Dilemma

10 May

You and your boyfriend are out scavenging when a zombie appears out of nowhere. You start run back to your car but somehow it seems to be gaining on you. You judge the distance you have to cover and the speed the zombie’s moving at, and realise that it’s going to get one of you before you make it to the safety of your vehicle. A thought occurs to you: if you trip your boyfriend up, the zombie will attack him giving you time to get away. You might survive if you don’t but then again you might not; if he goes down, you know you’ll definitely live to fight another day. What do you do?

As always, this dilemma is just here to make you think, so there’s no right or wrong answer. Vote in the poll to let others know what you do if you were in this situation, and if you want to give a more detailed answer, leave a comment on this posting.

From the author of For Those In Peril On The Sea, a tale of post-apocalyptic survival in a world where zombie-like infected rule the land and all the last few human survivors can do is stay on their boats and try to survive.

    Since I don’t have a boyfriend, I don’t have to worry about this scenario. I’m happily married. However, what would I do if a friend and I were running? I’d probably be to frightened to think. I mean, I frightened right now thinking about it!

      Ahh, but then the question becomes, would you trip your wife?

      This dilemma originated in the Valentine’s Day card that my girlfriend gave me this year which said ‘I really love you, but when the zombie apocalypse comes I’m still going to trip you up!’ I loved it as it really hit my rather dark sense of humour.

      Of course, it also means that if the undead rise, I’ll need to keep a careful eye on her!
