I Fear Bursting Into Laughter At Funerals

for people who really FEAR they might spontaneously laugh during a SOMBER memorial service or funeral 117 People

    It Happens

    I got the giggles at my dad's friend's funeral. Actually my brother and I kept looking at each other and setting each other off. We really loved the guy, we'd known him as kids. I think it was just because we were sad and uncomfortable.

    Don't Think I Am Horrid Please!

    I giggle when I am extremely nervous and I can't make it stop sometimes. Funerals are stressful for me even when I don't know the deceased that well; trying to figure out what to say to the loved ones, or even trying to think of something good to say about some people is...

    The Wrong Time, Or Is It Really That Bad?

    It's Not Always a Bad Thing

    Funerals are times of stress, and in some societies, we feel the need to suppress expressions of grief.  I have been to a funeral where some giggles started in the middle of the room, and they spread like a virus.  Soon, even the widow and family were affected, and the...

    I feel like laughing at the fake people - those people that go to funerals for appearances' sake, or the ones that are just there hoping to get something stated in the will. I feel like laughing at those over-dramatic people - the ones that cry like there's no tomorrow, the ones...

    I Try Not to Laugh At Funerals

    It is hard.  If it is someone I was close to then I don't laugh as I am too upset, but if it is someone I didn't know well, I tend to get giggly at funerals and don't know why.  I used to have this girl friend that did the same thing.  She asked me to go...
