When you do something ridiculous, how much does it bother you to have other people notice it and laugh at you?
I do ridiculous things a lot. I think. And I don’t embarrass easily. So… I guess it wouldn’t really bother me much.
I’m reminded of a quote by the great Jack Handey… “If you’re ever robbing a bank and your pants fall down, I think it’s okay to laugh, and to let the hostages laugh, too. Because, come on, life’s funny.”
How do you feel about it when someone laughs at something you’ve done? Remember, don’t let them laugh at you. Make sure they’re laughing with you.
