Who Deserves Credit?

Today at lunch me and some co-workers were in the cafeteria eating and I accidentally tipped over my bottle water. I didn't have the lid on it, and my co-worker "Gary" said: "If you liked it then you would have a put a lid on it!" All of my co-workers though this comment was a riot. The problem is that I actually said that to "Gary" like a whole YEAR ago when the same thing happened with his coke when he spilled it on his desk. I don't mind if he borrows my jokes, but he didn't give me credit. He just smiled at the laughs and so I said something like "Oh my God, Gary! That's so funny, I remember when I said that when you spilled your coke!" I said it very non-chalantly but people lind of hushed and I got the feeling that people thought I was trying to take credit for the joke, which I was, but not in the way theu thought I was. Al off this could have been avoided if "Gary" had just given me credit, and I even set up the opportunity by pointing out he coke incident but his whole response to that was "heh". Don't you think it's good manners to give credit to someone, especially if they are present in the room?
