    Default People who state everything out loud

    By which I mean people who say ''that is hilarious'' (without laughing)
    or they re telling you something and you're like ''I know that already'' after they ve been explaining ( whether obvious or not )for 20 seconds and say ''oh then there is no point for me to explain this to you'' (to which btw I answer ''well, yes', that's what I've just said''. (and I do ask when I m not sure so its not due to a pattern of ''i say i know but then fuck up the work''.

    Do you do that to a degree do you know people who do this ? In which kind of situations do they do it? and why do you / people around you do it?

    Some people may feel it's appropriate to state their emotions in words than actions (not laughing, but saying something is funny).
    Others might say it out of consideration (secretly finding it unfunny and can't bring themselves to a genuine laugh)...

    Then there are people who just want to hear themselves talk rather than have someone actually take into account the things they are saying.

    There are plenty of other factors unmentioned, and not enough in my experience to know.

    I don't think I have done this and I would rather laugh (even if just a little) at something that I don't find hilarious... sometimes it isn't even about what's said but the intent of what is said that I consider.

    I've known people who do it quite a bit, and it's rather annoying.
    I just want to float.

    I do that to a degree... I do the "that is hilarious" thing a lot (i usually laugh at the same time though), but I like to think i don't state the obvious. idk

    Most of the time saying "that's hilarious" is an easy social nicety you can use when you don't find what the other person's said to be particularly funny (at least not enough that you can get out a genuine laugh from it). It's less detectable, too, than faking a laugh.

    It's not always in your best interest/appropriate to not support people and their bad humour.

    it isnt, but whenever someone has said "that is hilarious" (without laughter) I know they're thinking this. it defeats the purpose. dont laugh. dont say "thats hilarious". just smile. then, change subject. at least, i'd suggest as much.
    Oh, its

    Hm.. sometimes I acknowledge verbally that something's funny, without laughing [insert trademark smirk]. & I actually do find it funny, I'm just a subdued person, I guess.

    As for the other portion of your post.. some people just like to hear themselves speak, it seems. You stumble upon a mental file of theirs, accidentally click play, and even if you pause them, & say oh, yes, I know this already- but thx- there's no fastforward or stop option available. They insist on playing it through, and talking at you.
    I've resorted to walking away mid conversation when this happens & I'm pressed for energy/time, these days.

    I'm not sure what causes this.

    I get what you're saying, it definitely doesn't work for everyone and in all situations. But for some people, I guarantee you they don't pick up on it. Because you'll say it and they'll just continue on with their story with the encouragement. When working in customer service, I find it can save a lot of energy and seems to be pretty effective.

    Me, too. Sometimes I find things amusing, which is different from funny or hilarious, but "How droll" or "How amusing" aren't much used expressions these days, so "That's hilarious" suffices to let the person know you're grinning on the inside. Unless of course it's really not funny at all, but you're trying not to say so and signaling that you appreciate the other person was trying to be funny.
