    I was sitting at the airport one time

    and this mom walks in with a very young toddler and an older boy. So she sits the toddler down on the seat and turns to sit the other one down, when the little one jumps down and takes off running. So he beelines straight into a glass wall head first and actually bounces back...

    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

    My automatic response to bad news is nervous

    laughter. That's just how some people are. However, when I do laugh at bad news for this reason, people automatically assume that I'm an *******, but I can't help it! Anyone else feel my pain?

    Whenever I talk about the death

    or killing of someone, I just want to laugh. I don't necessarily think it's funny, but I just can't help myself. And even at this moment, as I type these words, a smirk is painted on my face.

    I was at my grandma's funeral,

    and while I was distraught by the death of one of my favorite people on this planet, the lady behind me just kept saying "yes lord" over and over and over. It was the way she kept saying it that I couldn't help but laugh. My cousins thought I had lost my mind as here I am...

    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.

    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 :)

    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 -.-'

    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

    who farted in line at a buffet! He didnt even say excuse me. Instead, he said, 'Oh.' and walked away. Ive never experienced something so disgusting and funny at the same time.

    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

    That is me. Like if somebody hurts themselves I

    will sit there and laugh my *** off. I have found it is hiliarious other people give me dirty looks or roll their eyes. I think it is hiliarious I find it very difficult to control my laughter when I get outbursts. I also laugh when I hurt myself so it works both ways.
