What jokes you should never tell at dinner: could end up in a fight
A pleasant atmosphere at the table can be spoiled by bad jokes. Everyone has a different sense of humor, so if you are in a company that you do not know well, it is better to avoid some statements.
To spend a cozy evening, you need to follow a few rules. OBOZREVATEL collected a list of jokes that can spoil the impression of you.
"Don't worry, I have the number of the pizza delivery company on speed dial."
Such an expression will humiliate the hosts of the house in front of other guests. Do not even try to justify that it is an innocent joke. The hostess will think that she did not taste the dishes and will feel uncomfortable for the rest of the evening.
"Wow, you must have had to call a whole cleaning company in here."
It is not appropriate to mock the efforts of the hosts. This type of joke is not mean, but it can be taken as an insult. People put a lot of effort into organizing the dinner and so it is better to praise them rather than mock them.
"She probably didn't respond to the invitation so she didn't miss The Bachelor.
In any case, don't make jokes about someone who couldn't make it to the dinner. Because such jokes about people who are not around can cause mixed emotions among the guests. This will create an uncomfortable atmosphere at the table.
"I can't believe your parents finally let you out tonight."
You should not direct your jokes at a person's family or personal life. Respect the boundaries of the guest or hosts.
Jokes about politics, religion or culture
On such topics it is better not to talk at the table at all. Everyone has their own preferences, which do not always coincide with the thoughts of others. Such statements can offend a person and make them feel uncomfortable about their views.
