    I am first year of university and live on campus. I was in the downstairs kitchen with a couple of female med students who live on that floor and I said "I drank 3 cans of monster in the past hour", one replied "you'll give yourself a heart attack!" and I said "I hope I do!" lol I don't know why, it was bad joke but an obvious joke

    but my god, they flipped out they were like "YOU DONT JOKE ABOUT SUICIDE" and she was like "Just get out" and then I tried to explain "It was a joke", like I blatantly had no bad intentions or anything but then she was yelling "GET THE HELL OUT!" and I looked at the other girl who was also like "seriously just get out!"

    These girls are pretty much always so serious and I am rarely capable of being serious about much really but I mean this encounter has left me just so confused I feel like an outcast in a world full of people I'll just never understand lol

    I've spent so much of my life on internet lol and at dinner my dad regularly tells racist jokes etc so I can hardly understand people like this :|

    I really just want to know am I the one who's being a **** or are these girls just messed up

    It is something that has been really annoying me lately because the downstairs kitchen is the most popular place in this building lol my floor is entirely foreign people, now I feel like I'm not even welcome after such a harsh reaction :|

    Don't worry, they need to chill out. Though maybe they had somebody in their family commit suicide...although you didn't actually joke about suicide...Where are they from?

    Maybe they just wanted to get rid of you? :dontknow:

    Because that sounds like a slight over-reaction.

    This. You should have told them to grow up and shut up. They seem a bit too slow to be med students, if they didn't realize it was a joke.

    Besides, didn't they start the discussion on "suicide"?

    They sound like losers. You should report them. If nothing else, it might waste a bit of their time having to explain themselves.

    I'd probably have laughed. Seemed like an innocent joke to me.

    Overreaction, but what you said wasn't funny in the slightest, by anyone's standards. Not because it's mocking suicide or whatever, but because it's just a weird, unamusing thing to say.. .

    I can agree with that lol but I wasn't really thinking at the time

    if I was I probably would have just asked how energy drinks cause heart attacks and see if med student can answer that :]

    though I am pretty weird and I was thinking about how it would be interesting to go through experience of having a heart attack lol, pretty sure you don't die from them usually, my gran has had like 2

    you should have stayed. they're over reacting. even if they knew someone who had committed suicide, you obviously didn't know that, and the joke wasn't even that harsh!

    that's like saying "i wanted to die" when something embarrassing happens. everyone says it, it doesn't mean anything, they're hardly going to cope interacting with people.
