Overheard in IFR Magazine's "On the Air"

After clearing runway 161 at Van Nuys, California Airport, the tower asked my destination on the field. The conversation continued as follows:

Tower:
"Okay, cross runways 16L and 16R, continue taxi straight ahead to [name of FBO] and stay with me."

Me:
"Crossing 16L and 16R, and appreciate the invitation to stay with you, but we have a home in the area and our car is at the hangar."
