Of all the things to say...that's what you chose to say?

At least you didn't say, "sorry".

Were you even listening to your boss?

Anything would've been better than "that's awesome". No matter how socially awkward you may be at least think before you say something like that

Not really, because if he said sorry, then his coworkers would think that he was the guy who shot people.

Well, he didn't say "I'm sorry". No need to argue on what if he did.

I think the absolute worst thing to say in this situation is "I'm going to stab you in the face and eat your eyeballs. And I will have white wine to go with it."

As I am french, and also studying the language, I am pretty confidant that I am "canadien" and not "canadienne". Why would I be considered a female?

Trust me when you are nervous as hell, you just say some random shit. My friend whom also suffers from social anxiety tends not to speak in public gathering for this reason

Op's response made me burst out laughing! Anyways, 52, but why did he have to say anything at all? His boss wasn't talking to only him. Haha op should have covered it up by saying he was joking- At least no one would think he's a murderer. Or I guess he could act like he was reading a sign and accidentally talked to himself. Well, this made my day hehe :-)

72) I'm assuming OP just want to give his input so he can get some recognition from his boss. The pressure to give a valuable input mixed with social anxiety led to, " that's awesome." However I'm just assuming all this shit.

Sometimes people who are socially awkward can say things that are inappropriate at times. My old housemate had social anxiety and would often say things that were really random or embarrassing because she didn't know how to respond in conversations, especially serious or "heated" ones. She said it's like your mind is desperately trying to think of something "normal" to say, and in doing so, it ends up coming up with something that seems "normal" in your head, until it actually leaves your mouth and you realize how stupid you sound.

Yes, I gathered that. Obviously mine weren't serious either. I was simply playing along with our banter. When you said that a joke went right over my head, it made me second guess myself and wonder if there was something I missed, or if there was some reference there I didn't understand.

Seeing as he is socially awkward, he probably panicked and just blurted something out. "That's awesome" is a generally neutral thing to say when someone tells you something, but in this case it went horribly wrong.

Tell your boss that you were just joking, with this face ;)
