Humor Me

Humor Me : What is the meaning of this phrase?


By Tracy, Egypt - 18th Oct. 2007


Sometimes, young children come and tell us tall tales. They narrate events which couldn’t have happened. A child may tell us that there was a tiger in the garden and that he drove it away with a stick. When children tell us such stories, as adults, it is our job to believe them. Why do we pretend to believe them? Simple. We want to keep the children happy. We want to keep the children happy; we want to humour them. When you tell someone humor me what you want the person to do is to agree with what you are saying or what you may be saying, but you want the person to agree with you just to keep you happy.


• The husband thought it best though to humour his wife.


• I hold the purse strings. So you had better humour me.
