I'm usually a pretty nice person, but every now and again I can be a teensy bit insensitive. Not on purpose really--it's just that from time to time I laugh at the expense of my friends, neighbors, and colleagues.
You all know what I'm talking about. There are just certain, unfortunate things that happen to other people that also happen to be frigging hilarious.
For example: falling, slipping, tripping, and rednecks getting their fishin' poles stuck in the really high tree branches--and losing their balance when they try to unstick 'em.
Seriously folks, provided that no one is old or knocked-up or has sustained a serious injury, what could possibly be funnier than watching another person unexpectedly land on their rear?
Actually, I'll let you in on a little secret of mine. There is in fact something on this planet that I find far more amusing than the good old fashioned ker-splat.
Yesterday morning the crankiest, crabbiest, most most demanding member of my Board of Directors walked into our morning meeting in a major huff. Wearing her pants inside out.
It was awesome--pockets were flapping, her size-tag was exposed in all of its glory, and I had a bird's eye view of her poor, unfortunate seams just trying to hang on for dear life. With the exception of my wedding day, the birth of my child, and the grand opening of my neighborhood bakery, it was probably my favorite day in history.
So be honest here, what makes you laugh at the expense of other, innocent people? I'll open up anonymous comments--you know, to protect your identities and your no good, wretched souls.
