Overheard in IFR Magazine's "On the Air"

Heard over Oklahoma City approach frequency on a busy day:

Approach:
"American One Twenty-Three, descend pilot's discretion. Maintain 6,000."

American 123 [after a long pause] :
"Oak City, American One Twenty-Three. Did you call us?"

Approach:
"American One Twenty-Three, descend pilot's discretion. Maintain 6,000."

American 123:
"Say again."

Approach [getting a bit hot] :
"American One Twenty-Three: Descend and maintain 6,000. Pilot's discretion, co-pilot's discretion it really doesn't matter to me!"
