I was holding short of runway 9L waiting for an arriving jet to clear the runway.

As he was clearing, he asked:
"What's ground control?"

The tower answered:
"They are the people you talk to when you want to drive around on the airport."

[slight pause]

"I always wanted to say that!"

The jet pilot replied:
"You just made my day!"
