You have to give credit to those who refuse to let a setback prevent them from moving forward. They don't let little things like broken locks and cords that don't reach get them down. They find solutions.
Mind you, their solutions are often, and, shall we say, unorthodox. Unusual. Strange, even. Possibly dangerous. But definitely creative! You can't say they aren't creative. And honestly, we hope it all worked out in the end.
