In life, there comes a time when you encounter bad situations.  People respond differently even when presented with the same circumstances.  How we respond often determines the final outcome of the situation, really, whether it would make or break us.

There are, of course, some people who are more creative in others.  In fact, they are so creative that they can make a clever and quick comeback as a response to the situation they are in.  Instead of crying over the proverbial spilled milk, they make the most of the bad situation, turning it into something better or even fun to see.

Check out the following clever things to teach us all some life lessons on how to make the most of a bad situation.
