Overheard in IFR Magazine's "On the Air"

I was on V16 just off New York's JFK Airport at 6,000 feet when New York departure called.

Departure:
"Mooney One Victor Sierra, say airspeed."

Me:
"One hundred seventy-five knots."

Departure:
"Bonanza Five Eight Two, say speed."

Bonanza:
"One five five."

Departure:
"Can you go any faster?"

Bonanza:
"Negative."

Departure:
"Mooney One Victor Sierra, reduce speed to one five zero."

Me:
"No Problem. I'll slow it down for the Bonanza."

Unknown Voice:
"Ouch. That's gonna leave a mark."
