On The Air: June 2013

I was out of Sugar Land airport talking to Houston Departure. They always make me fly either south around most of the class B or north through the I-10 corridor. I was flying south this time, last direction given was to fly heading 170.
A few minutes later, Houston Departure tells me, “Diamond 123AB, turn right 20 degrees to heading 200.”
Me: “Uh, I can turn right 20 degrees to 190 or turn to 200, but not both.”
Houston Departure: “Diamond 123AB, just wanted to check your navigation skills. Turn to 190.”
