Most of the time we are chortling away at a person’s antics. We often have tears of merriment streaming down our cheeks as we try to think how funny a person can be!
However, have you ever wondered that you could be the butt of jokes too and no it’s not always losing your balance over a banana peel. There are lots of instances that can make you laugh as you silently mouth the lines, ‘silly me!’ So, here are some hilarious instances where the joke was on you and you laughed away!
Not Remembering the Name of Someone and Calling Them Buddy
How often do you meet somebody on the road, the person strikes up a conversation with you, and you can’t, for the life of you, remember their name! Well, you rack your brains and the only thing you can say is, ‘yes buddy yes’. In some cases, you do remember and in others, you completely forget the name and it doesn’t come back to you. Sometimes, even after hours of conversation, you politely say goodbye to your newly made buddy!
Getting flustered and Saying All the Wrong Things
We can count the number of times when someone said bless you and our response was so weird, that we could only laugh at ourselves later. What is it about ‘bless you’ that invariably makes you say all the wrong things? More often than not, you may say ‘you too’ or ‘you are welcome.’ Later you may have a good laugh over your silliness, thanks to the compulsion for a response.
Stumbling and Wondering What are Other People Thinking
How often has it happened to you that you stumble and fall, and instead of thinking whether you have hurt yourself, you quickly scan around the crowd? Now, being hurt is the last thing on your mind as you are more focused on wondering if are they laughing at you? Or maybe you try to turn the stumble into something sillier, say an impromptu jig with a silly grin plastered all over your embarrassed face.
Not forgetting to Pack a Book that You Are Never Going to Read
That new bestseller looks better in your bag than your hand. Well, that is just one of the numerous idiosyncrasies that you have but do not change.
Well, who reads a book on the beach?’ Well, if you are asking yourself this question, then here’s the answer – many people do that. Some of us find greater pleasure in clicking selfies, dozing off, or talking on our cell nineteen to the dozen, but for a reader, it is a must to carry a book along.
Opening the Fridge Door and Forgetting Why You Opened it in the First Place
Well, this happens to the best of us. We need something from the fridge, and our minds are so busy multitasking that the moment we open the fridge door, we forget what we opened it for in the first place. Funnier is the fact that the minute we leave the kitchen, we remember what we wanted! Now, is that too funny or annoying?
Accidentally Texting a Person You Were Talking About
You are talking to your friend about somebody, and you end up texting that same person accidentally. Well, it mostly happens because that person occupies your mind since you have been talking about them a lot. It can happen to most of us, but it is all about how you recover from the debacle.
When You Show Your Anger on Your Gadgets!
How many times have you released your anger on your computer or smartphone, just because it refuses to behave in a certain way? You start thinking that your laptop hates you and your smartphone is too smart for your own good! Well, your gadgets may be nursing a secret grudge against you since they are making your life so very difficult. We depend on our gadgets so much that once they start faltering, our anger is quick to follow. It sounds ridiculous, and it looks even worse, but that’s the truth of the matter. Another instance of our funny idiosyncratic behavior.
Well, these are a few not-so-favorite things that we tend to do, but the best part is we start laughing at our own expense. That’s the beauty of humor, it comes in strange places in unexpected dozes, yet it gives us a good laugh and makes us forget about the stress that continues to jostle for primacy in our minds. So, even if we tend to be silly sometimes, we shouldn’t be complaining, because, at the end of the day, it makes us laugh!
