Your laugh can make other people think that you are...

Most of the time I laugh even when I'm talking, telling a scenario, or even answering a question of my co-employee. One day my former co-employee told me that the one who replaced her is sometimes getting mad at me because when I answer her questions I always laugh after answering it. The reason why I often do that, Is because I'm not serious in answering her question but I really don't like a too serious conversation. I'm already having a hard time at work and I don't want to be too much serious in answering her question if its really not hard to answer and if the question is not that too serious.

Answering question must be done formally, good that your not recommended for termination. There is always time for laughing. I think you have a feeling of over confident. Laughing is good but not when your receiving or giving instruction to someone, most people will get irritated by that kind of attitude you'll be in trouble.

I know that I should answer formally, but I oouldn't help myself in doing that to lessen the pressure. I could also answer a question formally and I also know when to answer a question formally. I think I should be more serious when answering her but I do not promise.

i think, what you can do is to replace the laugh with a no sound smile. it would just make her feel that you know the answer and you are also being polite. honestly i would feel offended too if i was talking to you, usually there are just things you can "laugh" but then even if you do not mean to offend, laughing at someone may mean that you think he is not bright enough that is why she or he asked from you.

I always keep it proffetional at work. Ther is time to laugh with co-workers for example the lunch break.Proffetional does not mean serious it means to know how to interact with every single one of your co-workers
