"Boundary tower Cessna ABC 5 miles to the north of you over the river with the ATIS landing"
"Cessna ABC that river is a thousand miles long, now would you please tell me where you really are at!"
"ABC over the Dees Tunnel:
"Thank you ABC but the tunnel is 3 miles west..you are cleared straight in R12"
All in a days work
A light single engine aircraft landed runway 09 and cleared on Alpha, the pilot with a confident sounding voice, "Kamloops Radio, ABC clear on Alpha. Could you direct us to the self-serve fuel please?"
Without skipping a beat, the lady at the FSS replies, "Umm, for that you will have to go about 35 miles south of the airport."
The pilot is now confused and replies, "Oh! I thought there was fuel available for sale at the field here?"
FSS - "Well, we do have fuel trucks that will serve you fuel, but no self-serve fuel on the field here. Please contact Shell or Executive for fuel on frequencies XXX or XXX"
I had just landed after a lesson with a student and taxiing back to the flight school. I got on the radio, "That was a good one!"
With loud laughter in the background, she replies, "I thought so too!"
we are a C172RG and we are positioned between large turbine private jets taking off from Runway 01.
Tower clears us to "line up and wait" after a big boy citation takes off. The three of us in the airplane are all pilots (PPL) and Tower tells us we're clear for take-off. We request an additional 2 minutes for wake turbulence to disperse from the runway, and Tower's response is that "we don't have wake turbulence on runway 1", taxi forward exit at Juliet, contact ground.
He eventually gets us lined up again and has us sitting on the centre line of 01 for probably 8 minutes (making a point i guess), clears us to take off. We take off and during the climb we communicate with Tower again and ask him whom we should contact for flight following until we can get to Boston Center. ATC tells us, "nobody wants to talk to you". Literally, we're flying blind through NY airspace for about 45 minutes calling different New York Centre frequencies until we get to Boston Centre who finally talks to us!
PLO: Tower PLO right downwind 25 touch and go.
TWR: PLO Tower you're cleared to land runway 25.
*PLO DOES A TnG despite being cleared to land.
TWR: PLO you just took off without a clearance! In the future if you're looking for a TnG and I clear you to land remind me so I can clear you for a TnG.
PLO: Ma'am, consider yourself reminded.
