Seems like a reasonable thing to bring up. Maybe it was your delivery?

Yeah, I am not sure where or what to do with this.

Did you wake up from a cat nap and blurt out "we need a fan in here"?

That might have caused the reaction you noticed.

I just suggested we get a fan in a meeting because it gets too hot and everyone just stared at me like I just failed at a joke and started snickering. It was really creepy because I was dead serious and I still have that embarrassing awkward feeling simply because I suggested we get a fan. This day is really weird and I need to go take a nap. What is so funny about getting a fan?
Maybe only one person thought it was funny and it spread. People in the Midwest are weird, their like sheep. They tend to feel uncomfortable and care too much about what others think of them.

<quoted text>I just figured it out I think. For years this tall guy named Bill would walk in and there was a really low ceiling fan and I would prank him by turning the fan on so when I walked in it chopped him in the face. He quit and I almost got fired.
Two points.

What was the context? What was being said in the meeting when you went off topic with talk of fans? Was it a serious moment?

If there was any doubt remaining about you being a dumb a55 it has now been removed.
