Heard over northern Florida last night:
"Airliner XYZ: Turn left, heading 320."
"Is that a 320 heading for Airliner XYZ?"
"No, that should be, 'Turn left, heading 230' for Airliner XYZ. Sorry about that. Five out of four controllers are dyslexic."
"No problem. Five out of three pilots, same thing. Airliner XYZ turning left, heading 230."
