This is one of mine... I was still an ATC trainee then and it was my first transmission for the day. We all have specific text memorised for different approaches and a Fennec helicopter was approaching my aerodrome via the circuit. Here is what I said...
"XXX, report base with gears 3 greens."
"ATC, this is XXX. Roger report base, skids are down and welded permanently."
I was unplugged from the seat immediately and told to f*** off by my instructor to go sort myself out. Hahahahaha it is funny thinking back but I was so stressed back then.
Welcome to my starry one world alliance, a team in the sky!

CO 1585 was behind us yesterday and asked ATC what the highest altitude available was...the lady controller replied :"Continental 1585 you are cleared to FL600 and let me know if you need to level off before that..." I think they leveled off at FL310, but it is great to hear people with humor at 6am...it made my morning and ATC even told the CO flight :"...that was fun, wasn't it...??"

ATC wanted the plane to go faster due to traffic, so they told him to speed up to 190, and out of courtesy the pilot then told ATC he can fly faster then 190 if its better. Simple as that.

A few years ago I was flying with a guy in a Citabria and we were approaching TRI for landing. There was jet traffic coming in on RWY 5, and we requested RWY 27. The jet traffic was coming in before us and ATC told us to reduce speed for spacing. The pilot pulls the power all the way back to almost stall speed....exaggerating the slow down. Then a minute later he askes ATC how spacing looks. ATC says: Yeah now that your flying at a hover the spacing is good.

QF****.. Sydney Ground,QF**** bay** in receipt of Charlie, request push and start...
Ground.. Qantas **** B200 King Air 2 taxying from Exec behind you, when clear, you can push and start..
QF****.. Roger the King Air, then push and start, QF****
Ground... That won't be necessary, just push and start when he is clear...
Made me laugh...
