Certain rules exist, for using humor while speaking to people.

Firstly, it is important for you, as a person who wants to use humor while speaking to people, to ensure that you use humor (jokes) that the people can understand.

Secondly, it is important for you, as a person who wants to use humor while speaking to people, to ensure that you don’t offend anyone. It is easy to offend people while using humor: hence the need for you to remember to observe basic rules of etiquette, and ensure that nobody’s sensibilities are hurt. This applies particularly well if the issue you are talking about is one that is sensitive. If, for instance, you are talking to a person who works in a supermarket and whose specific job is that of a helper, you need to be very circumspective when trying to figure out what to say. You may say something in a bid to make him or her laugh, only to end converting him or her into an enemy.

Thirdly, it is important for you, as a person who wants to use humor while speaking to people, to ensure that you don’t appear to be trying too hard. Humor that is a result of trying too hard is a real turn off.
