Last Name?

This one killed me

As a switchboard operator in one of Philadelphia's busiest hotels, I often relay messages to guests. One evening a gentleman called me because the message light on his phone was flashing. "This is Mr. Branson in Room 1162. Do you have a message for me?"

"Yes," I replied, "the message is from Sue. She says she loves you and misses you."

There was silence on the other end before he asked, "Did she leave a last name?"
