16 People Who Took A Weird Situation And Made It Better

Diply 3 May 2018

Sometimes, life throws you a curveball, and things get weird.

When things go wrong or are just plain bizarre, it's how you handle the situation that matters.

And sometimes, coping with a strange situation calls for a little strange thinking. Sometimes you have to get creative. You have to think outside of the box. Just like these people have done.

Their solutions may not totally make sense, but at least they tried to make a weird situation better.
