An Expensive Invitation

Situation puzzles (sometimes called lateral thinking puzzles) are ones where you need to ask lots of yes or no questions to figure out what happened in the situation. These are good puzzles for groups where one person knows the puzzle and answers the questions.

huh??? This one has gone way beyond a joke. Could someone give me a few megs of space so I could comment on exactly why this is the most pathetic Situation teaser I've come across so far.

That was pretty bad. Too much info in the answer and it didn't even make sense.

a five year old who sometimes sits with me while I 'braingle came up with a much better answer. she was a school dinner lady and they were school head teacher and deputy. Have you tasted school dinners?

Why do you criticize this? It's wackiness makes it a great situation puzzle! A situation puzzle as it says is not meant to be so easy you can get the answer! Good job and don't listen to these guys.

Andy as I said on the message boards (and to you others) this is what a situation puzzle is MEANT to be like. They only work if you solve them as suggested, with one person knowing the answer. Good teaser I say.

A situation teaser should contain some kind of hidden meaning so that what originally sounds like it could have almost any answer turns out to have one really obvious answer that everyone agrees makese sense, but didn't think of at first. Unfortunately, very few of theses puzzles are anything more than random explanations that could be replaced with a thousand others that make no more sense than the other 999. If you've read the situation with the guy who is bakrupt after parking outside a hotel, you'll instantly know what I mean about a good situation teaser (unlike this one)!

i don't understand this at all. i'm completely confused.

I beg to differ with some of the early posters. If there are any number of /more/ logical (and just plain better) answers, than it stands to reason that it is a bad teaser. Especially if NO ONE gets it. NO ONE AT ALL.

It's a good teaser - but there is absolutely no clues given - it could have been anything.

Again, this is not a teaser. It's a fill in the blank. Any answer will do as long as it ends with "her" losing her job.

Ever seen the one "The music stopped and he died." Thats the whole teaser, sorry, it's just bad. When you can ask the question in one breath, but you need a college lecture course to explain the answer, consider revision.

No Situation teaser should require that much explanation!
Oct 16, 2007

This is a dumb brain teaser. You should have been much more descriptive. I bet only like 1 or 2 people got this on their first try.
Nov 12, 2008

Guess i still don't understand this one. Sorry.
May 19, 2009

this one's a bit confusing...
Aug 14, 2009

the answer should have something to do with the situation you set up.

FANTASTIC I LOOOOOVE IT. thx for a gr8 teaser
Nov 03, 2010

There are billions of possible answer to this. I don't want to sound harsh but really this teaser is not my favourites.

This is just getting stupid. So basically the top-rated(in terms of difficulty) situation teasers aren't even teasers but just messed-up questions with non-contextual answers. I agree with jimbo. People need to understand wat situation teasers are supposed to be like.

Awful, sorry but that was awful
