Laughing when you shouldn't?

Do you do this? I cannot for the life of me watch someone I know fall and not laugh. I know it is sick and wrong, but I cannot help it! Now, granted, if they are crying or bleeding from the head that is serious and I would never laugh, but a trip etc, kills me. I think I get it from my dad...sick sick sick. How bout you? Do you laugh in church, or at things you know you shouldn't?

  • YES! I do this too. If someone actually gets hurt when they fall, I don't find it funny, but if it's just a slip and they get embarrassed, it's hilarious to me, especially when it's someone I know and am close to. My entire family laughs at things like that. Not to be mean, but it's just part of our sense of humor. dad once took off, racing my mom to the car, when it was snowy outside. She took the yard, where there was snow...he took the driveway, which was icy and slid down the entire driveway, all the way until he was almost underneath the car. All of us, including him, laughed our asses off. Another example...we recently went to the movies and I tripped a little coming into the theater and spilled my popcorn EVERYWHERE. My husband and me were cracking up, lol.

  • I used to go to the ice skating rink just to watch people fall when I was younger LOL. I watch Americans funniest home videos all the time... I laugh watching that too. Its embarrassing to fall but even you laugh at yourself later one about it. :)

  • I try not to laugh but it's hard!!! I laugh when I fall, even if I hurt myself so you can imagine my struggle when it's someone else x_x
