This was heard the about a week ago when I was out getting night current and was returning to Mid Continent for landing. There was a regional jet that was landing ahead of me in my Mooney.

Tower:
"Regional jet, taxi to the gate."

Regional Jet:
"Roger. To the gate."

[a long pause]

Tower:
"RJ, you going to the gate? I have a Mooney on short final."

Regional Jet:
"Uh, yeah, we are. We're just waiting for the skunk to clear ahead of us."

Tower:
"Take your time."
