Today, marks a whole month that my boss has asked me to come in early to my part-time job, which makes me pretty happy to get the extra hours. I casually made a joke that she might as well make me full-time now. That made her change her mind, now I'm back down to 23 hours a week. FML

Maybe your boss took that joke as a sign that you didn't want to work extra anymore. Like: "you might as well make me fulltime now" to reinforce that you are actually parttime and should be treated as such

Seems more likely that the boss didn't want to risk OP pulling enough hours to count as full time because of some reason- usually it's because businesses don't have to give benefits to part timers, but if someone is working enough hours to qualify as full time, they become entitled to benefits.
