Ever have a "traumatic" event which you now consider funny?

I've always been a bit "afraid" of firehouse sirens. I traced that fear back to when I was a child. I'm sure this was before powerwheels. I had a firetruck pedal ride-on which had a bell on it. I had my "my pet monster" doll in it with me. I was riding around and rang the bell. Suddenly I heard the firehouse siren go off across town and I freaked out. I screamed and ran in the house, shaking. I thought I caused the siren to go off because I rang the bell. lmao!!!

  • I was 5 when E.T. came out and it took until I was 25 y/o to be able to watch that movie IT was the part where Elliot is going through the corn field and shines his flash light on E.T. and they both scream. My mom said I lept from her lap, did a 180 and grabbed onto her. I remember screaming but thats about all I remember.

  • When I was 10, and unbearably shy, we went to pick up my uncle from the airport. As 10 year old girls do I had taken a little blue jean purse and filled it full of silly stuff. One of the items what a little silver pop gun. I mean it didnt even take caps. You just pulled back the back and when you pulled the trigger it made a pop sound. Well they saw it on the scanner, made me empty my purse, inspected the gun (the entire time my mom is saying its a toy!) and they made us take it back out to the car! I was MORTIFIED. Because we HAD to go back in and those women were smirking and nodding at me! I was so so so embarrassed! I find it silly and funny now but at the time....OMG!!

  • Actual traumatic (with a funny ending) incident was almost getting killed when I was pregnant. I was at my mom's right after my dad passed away and she lives on a mountainous, curvy, no lines kind of road. Her driveway is right in the middle of a curve and this dumbass came around it around midnight doing something like 60mph with NO headlights on as I was pulling out. My aunt and uncle were ahead of me on the road, waiting in a wide, grassy spot. When the guy pulled around me and I pulled out, I could see my family members speeding after the guy and my uncle was hanging out the passenger window with his gun screaming, but I couldn't hear what he was saying. When we got back to town, my aunt told me that he was yelling, "You wanna play motherf*****?!" while waving his gun lmao.
