We are often placed in a problematic situation by surprise that we can’t even think of something to resolve it on the spot. When that happens, most of us end up resorting to some dumb solutions that will clearly lead us to disastrous results. Apparently, this isn’t always the ending as seemingly-stupid solutions can work out perfectly for us at times.
The human brain works in mysterious ways. It is the main system that controls our reasoning, but at times, most especially when we are startled, it doesn’t function that efficiently. Apparently, this man had enough mind practices as his genius reasoning got him out of a situation that was supposed to cost him hundreds of bucks.
A lot of Reddit users flocked on a post asking about the dumbest solution that actually worked out.
In a Reddit post, a user that goes by the name Sh0tgunLlama started a forum where he asked: “What is the dumbest solution to a problem that actually worked?” The post received several responses relaying some experiences, but one clearly stood out among those stories.
User Stellapotamus shared one hilarious experience, but as you come to think of it, his reaction was plainly genius. He shared about how he was canceling an appointment with a doctor without a week’s notice. The assistant attending to his concern then charged him a cancellation fee of $200. Stellapotamus, however, was quick to come up with a solution he actually didn’t think will work.
As it turns out, he asked if he will be charged for a reschedule. As soon as he was informed that it will be free of charge, he then asked for an appointment rescheduling which he requested to be set three weeks from the time he called. The assistant then confirmed his new appointment schedule, but Stellapotamus cancelled it right away so he will not be charged of anything for late cancellation. Surprisingly, it actually worked!
The dumbest solution was given by the user Stellapotamus but it turned out to be a genius trick.
According to BoredPanda, Stellapotamus’s story received the most upvotes compared to others who shared their answers. Others were amazed and pointed out that his method could actually work out on other places as well.
Look at some of the reactions to Stellapotamus’ experience:
