Pride Comes Before A Fall,

June 30, 2008 3:12pm CST
Want to hear something funny? Well here goes. My friend had a little get togather at her house, we were having a drink when one of her friend husband came over and sat down at our table and started bragging about what hes got at his home and I got such and such, so and so,then he got round to running his wife down. by then we got really bored and about to move away from him, then !!crash!! He fell through the plastic chair he was sitting in. Everyone stopped talking. We all burst out laughing for the sight was so funny, there he was his bottom on the floor and his legs up in the air. Needless to say, he struggle out and said "This is my cue to leave". I am still laughing.Have you had any experience like with someone you knew? Tamarafireheart.

Oh yes. I was at my cousin's place just to relax, it was summer. we sat each one on a chair used for the beach trip. We talked and than my cousin was starting to balance becuase he was getting bored. i warned him to stop but he wouldn't listen...so he continued doing this 'till I saw him falling, his feet up and his arms were flatering, he looked like an octopus. Than down he was trapped in the chair like a sandwitch. We laughed like crazy, even at the though of it kills me

Hi sunchild, That is so funny, yes everytime you think of that person you can't stop laughing, but this man was so annoying and when he fell through that chair, it was one of the funniest monements. That was a while ago and I have heard redently that his wife is divorcing him, at last. Thanks for your response and giving me a laugh. Tamara

my pleasure. here's another one. i was very little at that time. And a cousin of my mom came in visit. He laughed and made jokes...it was like he drank gas or something. I sat on my litle wooden chair, than i had to get up and to get my juice from the table. At that moment tha party member took my sit. I got upset of this so I did this. I waited for him to get up (he was a little dizzy and was constantly sitting or getting up)and at the right moment i took my chair back. Funny is that he didn't noticed and was trying to sit down...he fell and rolled like a ball while he has spilled his drink on his face. I was sitting on my regained "throne" and watching that funny moment. We all laughed even the man. The benefits were not onl of the funny act but also that i made that guy shut up for a moment.

Well, i had lived a similar experience with one of my annoying classmates back in high school: he was telling us one of his boring stories and he used to play with the chairs feet every time, and while he was bragging with i don't remember what, he ended up on the floor as well, and the whole of us who were close to him and saw him started laughing really hard.

Yes. I have seen a few incidents where the bragger is being pulled off his feet by an invisible cane.I always appreciate and enjoy that invisible force.

Oh dear. You made me have a good laugh. I hate people who brag about their possessions. I never had such experience but my reaction would be the same as yours.

not exactly like them falling down, but those kind of people total annoy me. i used to have a friend that done that. brag about all she had, her sister had, etc, but she would say hey lets do lunch and i'd pick her up and she'd never have money for her part and say, she'd buy next time. which never happened. finally i just quit doing lunch with her

Hi bunnybon7, I don't understand why people have to sponge off from someone else, if they don't have money then cancel the lunch or they just too mean to pay and says she doesen't have money, that is very annoying. The man I was writing about has now been divorced from his wife, I don't think she could much more of him, hehe. Thanks for your response. Hugs. Tamara

Ha ha, that's his karma for running his wife down. That would have been funny. Sounds like he was pretty embarassed if he left shortly after, that will teach him, lol. I can;t think of any similar experiences right now, but I will get back to you when I do. Have a great day and keep on laughing.
