Overheard in IFR Magazine's "On the Air"

We were in our Seneca performing the pre-takeoff run-up at Orlando, Florida when we heard this exchange on ground control frequency:

Cessna:
"Orlando Ground, Ccssna Two Three Four, clear of the active."

Ground Control:
"Cessna Two Three Four, taxi to the ramp."

Cessna [still on ground frequency but thinking he'd switched to unicom 122.95] :
"Executive Air, ah, this is Cessna Two Three Four we're going to need some gas."

Ground Control:
"I've got plenty of gas, but I don't think it'll work very well in your airplane. Try Executive Air on 122.95."
