I Giggle During Awkward Silence's

They Are HILARIOUS, How Can You Not? 864 People

    I Don't Know Exactly Why

    Or any awkward circumstance.

    People think i am lying a lot of the time when this happens. No matter the situation, i often have a hard time staying serious because most of the time it involves prolonged eye contact, which i CANNOT handle. Nervous laugher, not a liar. Wish there was something i could do...

    I still remember for a class last year we had

    to do negotiations and it was my turn to lead the negotiation. We were representing a low context culture and the other team high. Anyway half way through the negotiation I think the other team took it too seriously and stopped talking in the middle of the negotiation and sat...

    From Time To Time.

    It usually only happens when everyone is sitting there all quiet, and begin to look at one another not knowing what to say. Nine times out of ten the laughter is contagious and it takes the edge off the awkwardness. :)

    In my school, we were doing a tornado drill.

    We had to stand out in the hallway, away from any windows, quietly. Me and my best friend were right next to each other. And we burst out laughing. We couldn't stop the entire time. Needless to say, the teacher was pretty pissed.
