Today, my boss walked in and said something I didn't quite hear, but my co-worker chuckled so to be polite, I laughed with him. They gave me some weird looks. My boss was actually talking about his wife's tumor and my co-worker was coughing. FML

Damn...next time just say "I'm sorry, I didn't hear you." There really is no good way to let your boss know what happened. So, FYL and YDI.

Omg that's awful. I've been in that position one too many times... :/

stuff like that happens to me all the time... you just learn not to be nosy.

uhh.. they weren't being nosy?

could just say you were laughing at something you remembered and that you didn't even hear'

that was not very smart on your part haha.. just tell him what you thought happened and im sure he will understand

Just pretend that you were coughing too.

Exactly, it's better to to allow yourself to ask a stupid question and feel awkward then to do something awkward and feel stupid.

7 - thank you! She just died 2 months ago of cancer, she was 15 years old...FML

Aw, I'm so sorry. She looks very sweet. :)

See, this is why OP should learn to never laugh at a joke unless they heard it clearly, especially if the person telling the "joke" wasn't even talking to them in the first place.

51: Her boss just walked in the room and talked, it's not like they were talking to someone specific. So, basically her boss was talking to everyone in the room.

Holy crap! If you don't know what's going on just sit there and do nothing. I'm sure you feel bad too. This has happened to most of us at one time also. It took years to just say or do nothing.

What happens when you assume...

you make a decision without all the facts?

It makes an ASS out of U and ME = ASSUME :)

oooh clever :D I gotta remember that one

When you assume, it turns everyone in the vicinity into a donkey?
