PostSubject: A Story of Murder and a Question    Sat Jan 21, 2012 2:12 pm

There is a river with a bridge over it, and a WIFE and her HUSBAND live in a house on one side. The WIFE has a LOVER who lives on the other side of the river, and the only way to get from one side of the river to the other is to walk across the bridge or to ask the BOATMAN to take you.

One day the HUSBAND tells his WIFE that he has to be gone all night to handle some business in a faraway town. The WIFE pleads with him to take her with him because she knows if she doesn't, she will be unfaithful to him. The HUSBAND absolutely refuses to take her because she will only be in the way of his important business.

So the HUSBAND goes alone. When he is gone, the WIFE goes over to the bridge and stays with her LOVER. The night passes, and dawn is almost up when the WIFE leaves because she must get back to her own home before her HUSBAND returns. She starts to cross the bridge but sees an ASSASSIN waiting for her on the other side, and she knows if she tries to cross, he will murder her. In terror, she runs up the side of the river and asks the BOATMAN to take her across the river, but he wants fifty cents. She has no money, so he refuses to take her.

The WIFE runs back to the LOVER's house and explains to him what the predicament is and asks him for fifty cents to pay the BOATMAN. The LOVER refuses, telling her it's her own fault for getting into the situation. As dawn comes up, the WIFE is nearly out of her mind and dashes across the bridge. When she comes face to face with the ASSASSIN, he takes a large knife and stabs her until she is dead.

Now, in your post, list the names of the characters in the order in which you think they were most responsible for the WIFE's death. Just list WIFE, HUSBAND, LOVER, BOATMAN, and ASSASSIN in the order from most guilty to the least guilty in your opinion.

so my reasoning:

most responsible

HUSBAND-most responsible who else hand the motive to hire the assassin

WIFE- she's a cheater she brought the situation upon herself

Less responible but still up there

LOVER- he's a di-jerk. he should have helped her. (even though he was right)

and then these are below so i feel they are even less responsible (the gap of my feelings of "responsibility" between these and the lover is a little wider than the one between the wife and the lover)

BOATMAN- 'cmon really? she couldnt have given you that fifty cents later?

ASSASSIN- just doing his job. (which happened to be killing her)

wife - she put herself in the situation
lover - would let her die over fifty cents (maybe hired the assasin)
assasin - well he killed her
boat man - he need his fare but could have helped this once
husband - had nothing to do with it how could he have known right (unless he hired the assasin)

I think the bigger issue is that it took all of them to kill her but it would have only taken one to save her life.
