Not All Jokes Are Funny

Maybe you are wondering why is my title like that.

It is simple. Some jokes are insulting. Some jokes can hurt others’ feeling.

Anyway, I’m saying this because I was or should I say, I am deeply hurt with what I read this morning in one of the forums (where I’m currently an active member). They will have a huge contest this coming December. I just made a post that I hope it will not be the same date as our Christmas Party. Then to my surprise, I received a reply from the person who I treated like my father in online world. He said “pera o tsibog” (money or food). I’m not sure if I’m too sensitive or what. But I felt it’s an insult.

I admit I need money, but not to the point I will let our reunion pass. And I’m not attending parties just for food. I’m not “mukhang pera” (someone who has the propensity to acquire money, a worldly person, someone who values money and riches above everything else) and I’m not “patay gutom” (extremely hungry, tramp, destiture).

Though, he already said sorry and that he was just joking, the damage has been done.

So next time, (just a friendly advise) if you are planning to tell a joke, you should be more cautious so you dont offend people. Not all jokes are funny especially when someone might get offended.

    I read the entry sa thread sis and I admit I would feel exactly the same way as you.

    I also agree that the “damage has been done” and I know it will be a little bit hard for things to go back the way it was before.

    I didn’t view it as a humorous joke sis…
