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 :-)
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.
Just apologize and say you weren't listening or you heard him wrong..?
Socially awkward and people are scared of you; I think that's quite the accomplishment.

Lol you ARE socially awkward xD That made me laugh. Seriously though, couldn't you think of anything else to say?? Ever heard of think before you talk?
