Car out of Gas

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.

Mr. Browning is glad the car ran out of gas. Why?


Answer

Mr. and Mrs. Browning had just gotten married. Mrs. Browning was subject to fits of depression. They had their first fight soon after they were married; Mr. Browning stormed out of the house, and Mrs. Browning went into the garage and started up the car, intending to kill herself by filling the garage with car exhaust. But the car ran out of gas quickly, and Mr. Browning, returning home to apologize, found Mrs. Browning in time to summon help and restore her to health.

Maybe it stopped in front of some hot lady's house in the middle of nowhere. He then had the bests night of his life and had 20 children.

So far I've noticed in these particular teasers that when the answer is about ten times the length of the question, then the whole thing is just a farce.

I agree with A_n_d_y. there could have been any logical explanation, I've already thought of a thousand reasons why he was glad it ran out of gas. ANYWAYS...

He was in the Daytona 500 running a close second place untill the car ahead of him ran out of gas. He was glad that car ran out of gas as he won the race.

I thought that he was running away from a car and when the car ran out of gas, he was glad.

There are too many other things that could've happened, but good teaser anyway.
