Classic ON THE AIR: December 2012

On Clearance Delivery at Phoenix Sky Harbor, we heard an aircraft in the process of receiving a rather long and convoluted clearance, delivered in the usual staccato manner of a busy controller. There was a pause before the stunned pilot acknowledged the transmission.
Pilot (with a deep, slow Texas drawl): “Do y’all heah...how...ahm...a-talkin’?”
Clearance Delivery: “Affirmative.”
Pilot: “Wayell...that’s...how...ah...listen. Y’all can do that fast a bunch more, or jest once, NAHce ‘n slow. Oh-VER.”
