    The Most Embarrassing Thing V_v

    I audition for my first play. I wasn't nervous because I practice and practice. I got to be an extra which doesn't matter to me as long as I'm in the play. When it was opening day, when there was an audience. I started laughing out of nowhere. I try to stop or make it look like I...

    "What's So Funny?"

    I laugh when I'm nervous and uncomfortable, or when I'm in trouble.  But try explaining that to a cop!

    Laugh Attack

    Uncomfortable Situations

     If someone puts me in an uncomfortable spot, I smile a lot. If I don't know what to say or do, I panic and go into my autopilot mode, which is to just smile wildly and not speak. This causes problems for me when, for example, a stranger walks up to me at work and starts...

    I laughed at my friend

    when she fell hard on the sidewalk. I didn't laugh in a mean way. I didn't want to laugh but I always laugh when I am nervous! My friend got mad at me and I tried to explain. At least she is still my friend.

    I Amused My Doctor.

    I laugh when I'm nervous.  The more nervous I am the more I laugh. I had to go to the doctor about a year ago because I had developed a mystery case of rectal bleeding.  Needless to say, this was an uncomfortable experience for me. I did okay until the doctor told me...

    It's Not Funny! :)

    This once was a huge problem for me--whenever I'd get up in front of the class to present a speech, I'd get so nervous that I couldn't speak. Of course, I couldn't just not make noise, so the moment I opened my mouth to try to say something, I would start laughing. It was awful...

    *blushes*

    When I'm nervous, but mostly when I'm embarrassed, or if people stare at me, I tend to laugh a lot. I also blush like crazy, its really awkward. According to my friend, I blush when I laugh too, which he thinks just makes whatever it was even funnier.

    Yeah, It's Pretty Inappropriate

    i laugh when i'm nervous, but i'm usually only nervous when something bad is going down.  sooo, it's super inappropriate and uncomfortable.  one time, this guy asked me to marry him, and i laughed in his face.  too this day he hates me.
