Ignorance to Answer

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.

A woman sits on her couch as the doorbell rings. However, the woman doesn't answer. She is completely aware of the ringing, she has an ability to get it, and is not waiting for another person to respond. She doesn't dislike this person. In fact she cherishes them.

What is the situation?


The person is someone in her family.

The person is able to get in, so she is not ignoring them, technically.

There could have been so many answers to this. Maybe the person at the door was her uncle who was there to collect money. She loves the person, but doesn't wanna to pay the money. Just for one example.

Thank you for your feedback (please put any more feedback to help me improve, anyone)! I understand completely! You are correct in your answer too. So, I suppose any family member fits the bill.

I thought it was the dog. How exactly is a dog a person

I thought it was her husband working on fixing the doorbell.

I was sure it was the "door bell repair man".

I'd cherish the person coming to repair my broken doorbell.

Sorry... I created this one a LONG time ago, and I must say I'm rather embarrassed about it now.
