What Would You Do If … Dilemmas In A Zombie Apocalypse: No. 23 – The Who Goes First Dilemma

9 Aug

There’s three of you trapped eleven floors up in a skyscraper. You know your best chance of survival is to get out as quickly as possible, but there’s also zombies everywhere – including in the building itself. However, before you can leave the room you’ve been holed up in for the last few hours, you get into an argument as what order you should move down the narrow corridors and which position (going first, last or in the middle) is safest and which is most dangerous. You decide the only thing to do to solve the argument is to draw lots to choose who goes where. You get lucky and get first choice. 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.

    I don’t even need to draw straws…I go first. I’ve obviously never been in this particular situation, but I am good under pressure. I trust and follow my instincts and feel like I would help my trio to survive the escape.

    And also a little bit so I won’t have to worry what is coming up behind me.

    But mostly because I am a control nut.

      Yeah, going first is definitely the control nut’s favoured position. I’d probably be upfront too for similar reasons.
