People Who Think They’re Hilarious when They Aren’t
We all know someone who thinks they’re so funny, even though no one else does. If you don’t know someone like that, odds are it’s you! When you see someone like that, the nice thing to do is to “laugh” when they try to be funny. But if you “laugh”, it only encourages the person to torture you further with their feeble attempts at humorous conversation. So it ends up making things awkward for either you or them no matter what.
