Just How Do I Not Laugh?!?!

Sun Nov 14, 2004 12:12 pm

I am wondering if anyone can suggest how I not laugh. In my store, when people want to place sales orders or return and I need their last name, sometimes I just explode...... Some examples are:
Mr. Crook
Mr. Beetin
Mr. Sturdy
Mr. Poon

Just how the hell do I not laugh?!?!

Thanks!

Dick Hole
Harry Nads
Harry Balls
Dick Head
Richard Hymen
Harry Muff
Kimberly Clit

Ever thought that someone in a different culture may also be getting a good laugh from your last name?

You become an adult and you realize that not everything that may sound funny deserves a laugh or is even funny. My 2 year old laughs at just about anything.

If you start laughing, just fall onto the floor and begin foaming at the mouth like you're having a seizure. That should save any embarassment.

I know what you mean, the other day when we were studying history, this guy was named Waushanacock. Then when we had an awards ceremony, we had a Joey Johnson, Brent Shaver, and like Taylor Blacksburn or something. Then, the other day, I had a shirt on that had the OSU logo around a choppers logo, so my friend sees it, and says OSU choppers? Mildly funny, but then, after class this asshole goes and yells Swastika down the hallway, not funny, he got caught an the teacher went and lectured the 4 of us. As she was walking away, the same asshole goes "Choppers!" and we all start to crack-up. We wound up with detentions.

As a person matures one learns to be serious at places where seriousness is required.It'll come in time  Smile
Different names sound funny to different people from different places.

There is a man who works at the same Co. as me and when I was in Tech Support I used to configure laptops for Remote Users, and get dial-up software working for them for when they travel abroad, and this particular guy has the worst stutter/stammer I have ever come across.

So one day he travels to Milan, Italy and after unsuccessful attempts to dialup during his stay in Italy, he returned back to London very frustrated, so when he sees me, the fist thing he shouts out {in front of many people} is;
"Ya, ya yooou know, are theeee are therrrr, are there any wo, wo, wo, wooorking numbers in that fucking cunt, cunt country!??"  Wow!


that is a true story - on my mothers life!!
