I saw that you were the last post in this thread and I knew what it said even before I clicked on it.

My mother in law tells unfunny jokes. Like unbelievably bad jokes. Her feelings are clearly hurt when nobody laughs after one of her quips. She'll then do this move where she'll try to piggyback onto someone's funny joke and she gets even more sad when her attempt to ride the funny wave didn't work out.
Warning: Spoiler! (Click to show)
the weird part is that her jokes are actually solid. And she does things like callbacks and other standup comic tricks naturally. She just doesn't have timing or confidence. My side of the family will look at each other and nod in appreciation (we all would watch stand up comedy together from carlin to Chris rock) but don't want to give a courtesy laugh unless its actually funny.

Maybe your mother in law is just operating at a different comedy level, like Andy Kaufman for example. Maybe the joke is on you for not recognizing the humor. (I have never joked with your mother in law, so I can't say for sure, though.)

I love Kaufman.

Meh, not his fault. Shit happens. But yeah, stomach issues are the worst. I can tough it out through most other things, but stomach issues = me laying around moaning like a child. So not a fun weekend.

I did mention that my family will look at each other with knowing nods telapathicly saying things like "was that a callback?" and then nod at each other in appreciation.

I guess we appreciate her like the french with Jerry Lewis - only with less adoration.

had to bike a quite steep mountain road to enter the trails, and when I reached the top biked around the flat surface to slowly bring down my heart rate. that area has been getting more hikers and people out walking with their kids. so this 3, 4 yo kid suddenly crosses and stops right in front of me. he just stops. I suddenly braked and fell to the ground before I could unclip. and that little ass' folks are there. just staring at me. the whole fucking time. they didn't even apologize. nothing. they just stared. fuck humanity

y u no throw bad parents down mountain?

I was in Toronto Airport Int'l terminal and there was this really annoying Asian bitch skateboarding in circles around the terminal. Everything about her was douchey - from the clothes (McGill Medicine T-shirt "Keep Calm I'm a Doctor" on the back and silly hipster workwear-like trousers and thick rimmed glasses) to the WHO THE FUCK HAS A SKATEBOARD IN THEIR CARRY ON AND THEN HAS THE GUMPTION TO SKATEBOARD AROUND THE TERMINAL.

I think everyone in the terminal wanted to punch her in the face and stop her but it's not like there are "no skateboarding" signs in the airport because WHO THE FUCK HAS A SKATEBOARD IN THEIR CARRY ON AND THEN HAS THE GUMPTION TO THINK YOU CAN SKATEBOARD AROUND THE TERMINAL LIKE YOU'RE SOME KIND OF HOT SHIT?

:FU:

no one in the airport said something to her? thats is pretty weird. someone should have "accidentally" slid a suitcase in her path. or "accidentally" punched her in the back.

A tip to students: If you give me drafts of your final papers and I make lots of comments in the margins, you can't just insert my comments into the text. I mean you can, of course, but it does not have the effect of improving your paper. It has the effect of demonstrating to me that you don't understand what I wrote in the margins.

^The student's typed your comments into the text of their papers or they incorporated the comments? If the latter, why is that a problem?

The former: they inserted my comments verbatim into their papers. In my comments, I explained that what they were saying in their papers was false. They inserted those comments, but didn't actually change any of the sentences that were false.
