Backfire…

So I usually do this joke when I’m in an elevator with someone who Is carrying a gift wrapped item or a bunch of flowers or similar. I do a pretend surprised expression and say “oh is that for me?!”, and receive a variety of responses from the person. Most usually get the joke. This guy, who turned out to be a delivery guy, smiled politely and said “not unless you are Dr. Clifford.” On the back foot, I paused, and then recovered with “er… actually I am!”. I got out my ID and showed it to him. We were both genuinely stunned by how this turned out. Nice little lift after a really unkind day… #hoistedbymyownpetard #theardmore
