Lowest form of humor

I don't generally like puns. I was taught in ninth grade that they are the Lowest Form of Humor. However, sometimes it just amuses me to no end to deliberately misunderstand somebody.

Curly and I were adding test data to our automobile insurance app. "Add the driver," I told her.

There were two drivers, a policy driver and a non-policy driver. She asked me, "Should I just add the plain driver?

"No, add the CAR driver, silly!"

She paused. Then she laughed aloud in surprise.... "I meant should I add the policy driver or the other one," she said reproachfully. I was laughing too, embarrassed but amused at the same time, covering my mouth not to be too disruptive.

"I know," I smirked at her. Then I apologized. It's bad form to twist somebody's words, and worse form to laugh at your own jokes, but I couldn't help myself. It came out of my mouth before I knew what I was saying! Fortunately she was laughing too.
