And yet, according to the emoticons being used, some people are literally rolling around on the floor laughing at it (at their own joke, which is even worse!). It's just extraordinary, it really is.
You get people in real life who laugh a lot at their own comments and jokes even though others don't see what''s funny.
There is always the self-elected "life and soul of the party". (Usually the one that everyone else is hoping will leave first.)
They are the drunken, chest poking type who insist that everyone 'gets it' by getting very close and shouting... "Eh? Eh? Eh?" ... with beery breath after every quip until the victim caves in and agrees it was very funny indeed (whilst trying to remember if the bathroom has a window large enough to escape through).
And they stare at you intently, holding eye contact for far longer than is comfortable, waiting for you to laugh along. I went on a blind date with a woman who was like that once, most cringingly uncomfortable 90 minutes of my life, that was as long as I could bear it, I made some feeble excuse about the food disagreeing with me and left. She emailed me the next day exclaiming what a great time she'd had and when were we going to go out again! Un.be.liev.able...
