I Am Prone to Inappropriate Laughter

Personal Stories, Advice, and Support 42,580 People

    I sometimes laugh when someone gets in trouble

    or when the teacher gets mad. I can't help myself but laugh. When people move suddenly and concentrate really hard(musicians and conductors), I laugh. I also laugh when it is really quiet in a room or car when the radio isn't on and no one is talking.

    That moment when you burst out laughing at some

    remark or another made by a friend... and realise you are alone in your mirth, stared at in consternation and now considered to be rude.

    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 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

    Anytime anything sad happens my body says to

    laugh instead of cry. Funeral, movie, or just anything really sad I laugh and can't stop. It's really ******* awkward if you ask 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.

    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

    I remember being a young teen at church

    and the music director got up to sing a special in front of everyone. For some reason it struck me really funny and I couldn't stop laughing...to the point of tears...which got my mom to laughing too. The thing was, he thought he was a really great singer, but really wasn't.

    When people get hurt,

    when my mom is yelling at me or my sister, at funerals, weddings, during tests, basically any serious moment I end up laughing for no reason.

    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.
