    Quirky Me

    As the years have gone by and I've become more secure in myself this inappropriate laughter has diminished to a degree, however, it still remains one of my most embarrassing attributes. I've always been a quirky girl, never conforming and always with an opinion different from...

    ... So there I was at the bar.

    Watching the news on the tele... Remember when they showed the lions noshing down on the giraffes? While the other bar patrons were quiet, seemingly horrified at the images ... I uncontrollably laughed my *** off ... And I've got a big voice! :-)=)

    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 :)

    At work yesterday (I work in a library),

    one of the patrons changed the generic blue background on one of our public computers to a picture of a skeleton flipping the bird, and we didn't figure this out until they left and I logged the next patron onto the computer. I had to go in the back because I was laughing so...

    When someone randomly suspects me of doing

    something suspicious (simple things like leaving a door unlocked, unplugging the toaster, spilling a drink on the floor and not cleaning it up)... I immediately smirk and laugh on the inside. I laugh because their seriousness over looking to blame me is hilarious. Sometimes I...

    I don't know how others feel about this issue

    but it's a real problem for me! And it's not just laughter, I'm prone to smiling at inappropriate times too. So here's an example, one time I went to go get my eyebrows waxed. I've done this a hundred times okay since I was 13 and I'm now 22 so this appointment wasn't anything...

    Whenever my parents yell at me I start to laugh

    and they get angrier and angrier every time giving me a larger punishment. Instead of a week I got three weeks of grounding. It was horrible I was in isolation.

    Whenever a funny idea pops into my head,

    I don't call it inappropriate laughter

    I think laughter is rarely inappropriate

    as long as it is done in the open with clear and non-malicious intent. I love seeing people laugh. It breaks any wall between persons.

    All the time. Whenever I'm scared,

    like watching a scary movie, or when I dropped my phone in a lake I thought it was the funniest thing, and whenever someone tried to bring up something serious I start smiling and I just can't help it

    I will get the urge to awkwardly laugh. I don't actually find it funny! One time, my friend, whom works at a Mcdonalds, was serving a customer (there was a huge line) and while talking to the person, she just started to throw up everywhere. She called me and I rushed over there...

    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 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.
