Polite Laughing

Postby Dr Markus » 02 Mar 2018, 14:21

You know, when someone says something meant to be funny but it's not even remotely funny. However you're too polite not to give a little chuckle or laugh. Once or twice yeah, but if you keep having to do it with nothing on the line (example, pretend laugh at a joke by your boss) I fucking hate it. I usually stop after the 3rd or so time. Ignorant I know, (but Markus you're an ignorant cunt in general!! I know, but..), but I just can't help it. Some times I do get a look from the said person, like "fuck you then", but I don't really care.

A lot of laughter is just an acknowledgment that someone said something funny, I think. Especially in work situations, places like that.

Not that that's necessarily a bad thing. But it can be tiring after a while.
