    I tend to laugh when I am nervous.

    ..so i don't do so hot in certain work situations...a handful of times a boss has yelled at me at work and if I can not manage to hold back the laugh the situation tends to escalate unnecessarily...I guess "can't help it" is not a valid excuse even when it's the truth

    I have a friend that is addicted to reddit

    and he is almost constantly looking through posts while we are hanging out. Because I am an incredibly awkward person, his distraction with his phone causes me to start telling bad jokes ( most of which I inherited from my dad). At one point he finally laughs so I begin laughing...

    This is so wrong... OK,

    so I just thought of this (even though it happened last Friday) but I was reading the other stories on here and decided to share this. So in my school we wear uniforms and a lot of the kids decide to 'change' certain things about it (skirt length, pants size, hair, etc.) So on...

    I find awkwardness extremely entertaining and I just can't help it. Because of this, I try to surround myself with people who find it endearing. It makes me feel better about myself😳. Not proud...

    I was on a film set and we were at the final

    scene, which was when the boyfriend was finally with his girlfriend, and when they embraced each other on set, I suddenly bursted out laughing out loud, and all my crew were really annoyed with me.

    When I find myself in situations I never

    thought to be in, I have this urge to burst into laughter. So to be polite in respect to those who seem so intensely involved, I would suppress with difficulty the laughter that threatened to come out.

    ... So there I was at the bar.

    I can never do yoga. Why?

    I tend to burst out laughing in calm, quiet settings. Especially when people relax a little too much and let a little fart go. Sometimes going to church is also a problem...yikes

    I giggle. A lot. And it's usually

    when I'm not supposed to be laughing. In kindergarten a boy was making funny faces during the pledge of allegiance, and, unfortunately, I laughed. The teacher scolded all of us because she had no idea who it was, and I got off scot free, but I wasn't always so lucky XD

    When They Fall

    I am horrible at laughing at people when they fall. I find it hilarious, and I cannot help it. Of course, I'm not mean about it and will help them up, but I can't help but laugh. I'm sorry in advance if you ever fall in front of me :)

    I Must laugh if someone trips.

    It's just a really bad habit. It's much worse if the person who trips is walking towards me because then I begin to laugh or start smirking in front of them...I can't help it.

    My imagination makes movies.

    Or cartoons. Always has. But after heart attacks it got funny. Had trouble being focused. So the cartooms translated chats. To make me laugh. And help me focus on chatters. But some laughs wreck bonding. Few understand. Nor care to hear me laugh.

    This is probably one of my most annoying traits!
