One man recently shared how he told a joke to a girl he liked and she laughed at it
After telling a joke to his crush, one girl liked it so much — she laughed.
No issues there, right?
The girl had to be hospitalized due to asthma.
Read on for the cute story!
[SPOILER ALERT/UPDATE: this guy asked the girl out and they are now dating!]
“So there’s this girl I like at work, and we’re really good friends. We’re having lunch and we are making those ironic depression meme jokes as most friends do. For some reason, I (in my unknowingly-stupid way to get her to laugh) got the idea to say ‘Well hey, you know what’s just one letter away from sad? DAB?’ And promptly did the deed.
Also, I have the ability to cry on demand so I just stared stone-cold her and let two tears fall down.
She finds it funny. Extremely funny. So funny she drops to the floor and starts laughing her a** off.
After a good thirty seconds, she starts grabbing her chest and coughing. I asked if she was okay when she begins to convulse a bit. Freaking the f**k out and thinking she’s having a d**n seizure, I start to reach for my phone.
And in the exact second, my manager randomly decides to come in and sees this big guy towering over this poor little girl on the floor. I only manage to cut off her impending rage by saying I think she’s having a seizure and I’m calling 911.
Fortunately, I was able to explain to her what happened when the ambulance arrived.
Turns out, she has asthma, and my joke caused a flare-up, and was waving her arms to try and tell me to get her inhaler. Whoops.
TD; DR. Made a joke with a girl that ended up causing an asthma flare-up, manager walked in when it happened. She ended up in the hospital and I almost lost my job.”
Thankfully, the girl turned out just fine.
One user commented how that her laughing was a good sign that she liked him.
He replied back, saying how he was actually planning on asking her out on a date.
Another user commented, saying how he had a “great in” at this point — but he needed to take it easy on the dab jokes unless she wanted to be back in the hospital.
Other clever comments, included:
“Okay but imagine actually dying laughing at a dab joke.”
“And kids, that’s how I nearly killed your mother with a dab.”
And my personal favorite:
“Tell her that you can guarantee that the date will leave her breathless.”
But for folks with asthma — it is no laughing matter.
One user commented on how he appreciated the story but warned of an ugly truth.
“As a side note, from a guy who also has asthma, when you get those laughing fits, it really only takes 30 seconds until you can’t control your breathing anymore, and you feel like you are suffocating.”
He goes onto say that those around people with asthma should know the limits of said people.
It gives “I’m dyin’ over here,” a whole new meaning…
