Not my joke

Recently a staff member told me a joke I already knew. I jumped in with the punch line then realized that I sounded like a total jerk. It would not have hurt me to let my friend finish the joke. In fact, it would have made him happy to share joy, and in return, spread some joy in my direction.

How do we remember to enjoy jokes and their deliverers regardless of the reprise status?
