I Am Prone to Inappropriate Laughter

Personal Stories, Advice, and Support 51,207 People

    So I don't like it when people cuss

    but yet I laugh when they go it and I think it's funny! Why is it so easy to laugh at bad words and not at the good jokes? I would consider myself a good girl so I don't like cussing but I laugh for no reason and I have no idea why!

    I can't begin to tell one the amount of times I

    have either been the only one laughing, excused myself out of the room due to laughing, or been spoken to about my laughing. Good times.

    When the giggles are not good!

    Like many young girls I was prone to fits of the giggles; only this particular one landed me in trouble. It happened in middle school. We had a rather fierce lady teacher called Mrs Pearson who we didn’t like much. She was elderly and definitely one fob the ‘old school...

    I was watching a movie

    Everything is 5 times funnier

    when you're not supposed to laugh. The worst thing is that when people start losing their s**t I really want to laugh. well angry people are funny but they're going to get even angrier if they see me laughing at them! I used to do it in school too, that got me in trouble - the...

    There have been times

    where a chuckle was totally inappropriate, and I couldn't help myself. I was in an equal opportunity and treatment class, and the first thing the teacher said, was "retard jokes aren't funny." I had just seen The Hangover, and remember Zack Gala-howeveryouspellhisname's line...

    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

    This is probably one of my most annoying traits!

    When I face an awkward situation I can't help but giggle! It seems the more I try to refrain from my typical response the more I can't help but burst out laughing -.-'

    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 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

    Yeah, I laugh at just about anything.

    I rarely get angry. Like some of the over-sexual comments and groups on here. No offense though. lol

    I laughed when a friend of mine fell off of a

    cabinet and broke his left arm. I laughed harder when we put him on a stretcher and carried him to the clinic. I laughed the hardest when the nurse at the clinic said that he was lucky he broke his left arm (well, he was left-handed, and it seemed pretty funny). I still laugh...

    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 I started to laugh

    when my cousin sang off key at my Great Aunt's funeral. I know it was a terrible thing to do but at the time it was funny as hell. He tried to reach a high note and cracked like a broken trumpet. To be honest my Aunt would have probably cracked up too.

    Every single movie I've watched the same thing

    happens. If it's a drama then I'm laughing at the most inappropriate times ever. Every time someone tells me about a very bad moment in their lives, I'm trying desperately not to laugh. I mean seriously every time I feel uncomfortable I start laughing!
