Overheard in IFR Magazine's "On the Air"

Over Southern California, United 202 requested direct to Winslow, Arizona from Southern California. Instead, Center gave him this:

Center:
"United 202, I've cleared direct St. Louis."

United 202:
"Direct St. Louis. Thanks."

United 18 (foreseeing good fortune):
"Center, United 18. Request direct uh er anywhere."

Center:
"United 18, expect further clearance in 40 miles to direct Ah Anywhere."
