Too Serious

I tend to take people and their stories too literally.  I often miss jokes or little jabs b/c I think they are being literal.   Or someone will tell me something totally outrageous as a joke and I will believe it.  When I waited tables I would sometimes confuse my customers when they would make a joke and I wouldn't laugh thinking they were actually saying something to me.  I would look at them kind of confused until they told me it was a joke and then I would laugh a little nervously.  I'm such a dork.

You are not alone. I've been in the same position.

Dont worry there is nothing wrong with that. Everyone is different and sometimes its hard to tell when people are joking or not, everyone has a different sense of humour.

one of my husband's friends does that all the time... he makes these jokes that I always take seriously. I am sure that he thinks that I am soft in the head!

it's okay, my friend, i'm in the same boat ...
