Can't unscrew short screw that was screwed into the wrong spot

So I was being an idiot and I messed up the orientation of my macbook and ended up screwing the short screws into the spots where the long screw should be. Now the short screws won't unscrew out of the holes for long screws. I've tried unscrewing it upside down, right side up, I've tried taking the cover off and using pliers (lol) to turn it around but nothing is working.

There seems to be no answers on google about this either!

Any help would be greatly appreciated :)

Are you talking about the bottom cover?

If these are the bottom screws, lift the bottom plate till it puts pressure on the screws then try turning them.
