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.
"Regional jet, taxi to the gate."
"Roger. To the gate."
[a long pause]
"RJ, you going to the gate? I have a Mooney on short final."
"Uh, yeah, we are. We're just waiting for the skunk to clear ahead of us."
"Take your time."
