How Do I Get Myself In These Messes?!?

I sent the following joke to a female friend of mine via email.

To: "Smith, Sue" <smith60404@msp.com> (name and email address changed)

Subject: Hi Sue, I thought of you when I read this...
____________________________________________

"Two bored casino dealers are waiting at the crap table.A very attractive blonde woman from Alabama arrived ....and bet twenty-thousand dollars on a single roll of the dice. She said, "I hope you don't mind, but I feel much luckier when I play topless."With that, she stripped to the waist; rolled the dice; and yelled,"Come on, baby.... Southern Girl needs new clothes!" As the dice came to a stop, she jumped up-and-down... and squealed... "YES! YES! I WON! I WON!"She hugged each of the dealers... and then picked up her winnings and her clothes, and quickly departed. The dealers stared at each other dumfounded.Finally, one of them asked, "What did she roll?" The other answered, "I don't know...I thought you were watching."

Well the joke was pretty funny but it wasn't the joke that was the problem... It was the Subject line. You see... Sue in a large chested female who loves going to the Casino and when I put in the Subject line that "I thought of you when I read this," she took it that I was thinking of her as topless when in fact I was simply thinking of her as being in the casino! I quickly explained what it was I was referring to hoping that my explanation would smooth things over and fortunately it did... Whew! Anyways, I feel much better now that I explained things to her. After she realized the misunderstanding, she shook her head and laughed... An embarrassed laugh none the less. I just hope she really believes me though knowing me the way she does, I doubt it!... Naw, I think she does!

Oh Dave, I laughed when I read this, you poor thing. I can imagine Sue's reaction... I'm happy she was ok with your explanation. It is a funny joke though.

Funny stuff Dave. When she thinks about it your friend probably knows you weren't insinuating anything. It does make us stop though and realize we all don't see things the same way :)

Sandy said...

Gypsy said...

It is so easy to be misunderstood via electronic media and isn't always the best way to communicate because of that. I'm sure Sue will not look at you differently now though you might want to keep your eyes above chin level for a while ;) Sorry, I couldn't resist.

heiresschild said...

yeah, yeah, Dave, tell us anything! LOL

geewits said...

You didn't picture Sue topless winning at craps even for a moment?

Lone Grey Squirrel said...

Uh Huh, sure, we believe you. Uh huh.

Some folks just don't get the meaning of the intended humor right. Maybe humans shouldn't even talk to each other.

And I would have been thinking of her topless. :-)

You sure put your foot in it didn't you? :)

Loved the joke.

It is kinda funny but I know how careful you have to be sometimes, even with people who you think will take it the right way.

Why Alabama? Doesn't matter, I guess it wouldn't be my kind of joke regradless. But I'm glad your friend accepted your explanation.

monsoon-dreams said...

Cheryl said...

You have to be so careful when sending jokes! As you found out. There's only a few people I know that I can send truely tasteless jokes to. Not that that one was tasteless. Just saying.

Hope all is well with you!

Portia said...

Oops! That's pretty funny. :)

alicesg said...

Hahaha, Good joke Dave.

David Kim said...

Hahaha! Funny! I know there are a lot of misunderstandings that happen in life. It happens to me when I'm just joking around and people take it personally.

Hammer said...
