15+ Times People Righted What Was Wrong

Paddy Clarke 2 Apr 2020

It is important to be good with your hands... is something that my parents always instilled in me. However, we live in an age where it is possible to call a person for pretty much any service you need!

Despite this fact, there are still people out there who like to take matters into their own hands... even if they're not exactly equipped to deal with the situation. Whether it be fixing broken clocks in the strangest way possible, or coloring in broken furniture with a sharpie that doesn't exactly match, here are 15+ times that people right what was wrong.

1. "The minute hand broke off of my clock the other day so I fixed it."

Reddit | jlansey

I quite like the idea of doing this to all of the clocks in my house actually. It would certainly add an element of excitement to making plans. Will I be there at 1 on the dot? 1:15? 1:45? Who knows?!

2. "I feel like Windows mistakenly did something horrible to my files, and then managed to fix them while in a panic."

Look, I'm sorry to have to draw attention to it, but I was incredibly proud of myself for coming up with "cowabumper", I don't care how obvious it was!

7. "Friend of mine lost his thumb, nothing a quick tattoo can't fix!"

Reddit | Jfu88

It's good that he's keeping his spirits up! I can't imagine how much that must have hurt... the tattoo I mean, but losing the thumb probably hurt a bit as well!

10. The Easiest Solutions Are Sometimes The Best

Reddit | attheisstt

I might just put a sign like this outside out house becuase I reckon it would be hilarious just to hear people screaming, "DING DONG!" at the top of their lungs. Although, I think most people would just text saying, "Outside".

11. "I'll just put this divider right... Here!"

Reddit | bealan

Ah yes, the best possible place to put a divider. I'm assuming this is so that people can lurk in the corner without being disturbed? Or perhaps it is to stop people being distracted by the radiator staring at them while they go?

I feel like you could add that beard to almost anyone and it would look like Dr. Strange, but they went the extra mile and did the hair, eyebrows, and shirt too. Not only will their son not be teased, he'll be the coolest kid in school.
