    I remember one time I was at a cookout with my

    family and friends and my grandma sat down on a chair and it broke, I couldn't stop laughing. Then a few minutes later someone else sat down and broke the chair!! It was so funny!

    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.

    I was taking care of a customer

    and it was my first day as supervisor. She wanted a discount for some items she put on hold that were later dirtied due to an employee putting them on the e. Well as she's going off about the incident, I went into a peaceful blank and started smiling while holding back laughter...

    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!

    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 :)

    My dad got really mad at me

    for some reason, and then all of a sudden I start bursting out laughing and I couldn't stop, and he said what? And I didn't know why I was laughing so hard.

    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 would have to run out of the store

    so I could burst out laughing. It would probably be a huge disaster if I was with one of my friends or sisters. This is honestly quite rude but im sure many people on this section can relate to it lol. https://vine.co/v/eDPWXxgXgAX

    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...

    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.

    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

    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
