@SweetMelissa429:  During fights I am witnessing or often a part of, with my parents and/or sister, I smile and sometimes even giggle. I am the complete opposite of happy in that situation, it is just something I have done to deal with it since I was little. Weird I know.

Wow that sounds familiar! My great grandmothers funeral was horrible for me, I loved that woman so much it was a painful day. My family decided on like 4 slow sad country songs to play in the background during alternativng moments of silence & someone getting up & telling a story about her. It was so horrible for me I was bawling my eyes out non-stop. My now Fiance was there with me & must have really hated seeing me like that so he started discreetly tickling me. I was really annoyed at first until he got a really good one in there & I burst out laughing & couldn’t stop but tears were still running down my face. Afterwards everyone said they thought I was just crying hysterically… Thank God!

@SweetMelissa429:  I don’t think that is strange. At my brothers funeral my cousin did a heartfelt self written song and organ solo which was great BUT every time we thought he was about to be done another verse happened. It just went on forever. Everyone would raise their hands to clap and then have to put them down or pretend to scratch.

I was crying and giggling at the same time. It was a nice reminder that even sadness leaves room for happiness. And I am definitely not having any instruments available for my funeral.

@SweetMelissa429:  My dad planned this memorial mass for the 1 year anniversary of my mom’s death. The priest that did it knew my mom well, but only in the last couple years of her life, when she was sick, through this weekly bible study she & my dad went to. 

So at the mass he’s talking about how mom was “a kind, gentle woman” and all this really sweet stuff. Only… my mom was so NOT that. I loved her… but she was a ball-buster and totally inappropriate most of the time. I had to put my head down and then I could just FEEL my uncle looking at me. I tried SO hard not to look at him but finally couldn’t help myself. We made eye contact and started cracking up. 

I guess people thought we were crying, because there were tissues being handed to me from every direction, which only made me laugh harder. I guess it makes sense though… my mom was infamous for laughing inappropriately. She went into fits of hysterical laughter with full-on snorting at church ALL. THE. TIME.

@MexiPino:  that just made me smile and sort of tear up at the same time. That’s such a sweet, personal moment for you and your uncle!


I also seem to laugh at the wrong time. Whenever something serious is going on it’s like my go to is to laugh

Guilty of this as well! My brother and I used to fight like cats and dogs, and he’d go blue in the face yelling, and I would just burst out laughing, making him even angrier. 

I’m pretty inappropriate in general, and my commentary is known among friends for being out there. I make fun of a lot of things that I probably shouldn’t. If I acted like my real self on the bee (and didn’t tone ‘er down) I’d have been banned a long while ago.

I giggle when nervous or in awkward situations. Churches, funerals, brief moments of silence, prayer….its horrible. I giggled a lot during my first date with my husband.

@SweetMelissa429:  I’m the same way. Several years ago my family went to a funeral for a family friend’s father. Well for some reason everything was funny even though the atmosphere was sad. And it didn’t help that this woman sang a solo and I felt like searching through my purse to hand her the right key…I mean her pitch was SOOO off! My sister and I were cracking up and I didn’t want my aunt to see us because I thought we would get in trouble later. I just pretended I was coughing because I couldn’t stifle the laughter anymore. Turns out my aunt was cracking up too.

Also, my best friend used to always get in big arguments with her parents when I’d be over her house. She’s really sarcastic and a bit of a comedienne so when she would be arguing she’d say the funniest things. I would try so hard not to laugh and let her parents see me.

@SweetMelissa429:  At my cousin’s funeral, the pallbearers almost dropped his coffin…I had to bite my tongue REALLY hard, I thought I was going to lose it! I have never told anyone because I was so ashamed of my almost inappropriate reaction – I was only 16, the funeral was awful, the first one I’d been to for someone who didn’t die of old age.

Then at my great aunt’s funeral, the funeral director delivered a eulogy about her that wasn’t really about her at all, and said ‘you aren’t the first to lose someone, and you won’t be the last’, like they were words of comfort or something! It was a talkin point after the funeral for sure!

I feel  ya. I am the person who everyone avoids looking at during serious situations because they claim I will make them laugh.
