I Am Prone to Inappropriate Laughter

Personal Stories, Advice, and Support 39,740 People

    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 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.

    Last time that I was in jail,

    I laughed uncontrollably during my sentencing. The judge looked like a really buff turtle, it was hilarious. It did not pan out well.

    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

    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 always have been. I don't deal with

    situations where I shouldn't be laughing or smirking well. Anxiety makes me smile when I should not. Sometimes that does not go over well like when at funerals and situations like that.

    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.
