Overheard on a busy Friday afternoon with Seattle Center/Approach:
Center (handing off to Approach):
"Cross JAXON at 8,000 and reduce speed to 250."
Airliner 123 (checking in):
"Approach, will we have to slow to 250 knots at JAXON?"
"Airliner 123, I wish I could say no, but approach insists that they need it for spacing."
"How's the ride at 8,000 feet?"
"No complaints so far, except for controller ability."
