“and now I will tell you a funny story…”

By Massimo Usai


There’s one hateful thing – which I can’t stand at all – in particular when I’m at some party or wedding.

It’s those moments when a guest begins his speech with this phrase: “and now a funny story…

With personal experience, I have realized that it is better not to delude people with unnecessary expectations.

That can easily lead those who listen to deep disappointments and forced smiles to not embarrass those who have had so much courage to proclaim themselves “a funny person”.

So, if you are the one who decided to make a speech, even if they are in front of your family members, don’t make yourself embarrassing.

Tell your story fast and straightforward, and let others determine if it’s a funny story or not.

It’s suitable for everyone, trust me.
