Flying a Piper Lance from Santa Fe to Scottsdale in severely turbulent winds, someone on the radio asked ATC a question.

Unidentified Pilot:
"Is there anyone flying out there in this stuff?"

ATC:
"Yes. One other aircraft."

Unidentified Pilot:
"At what altitude?"

ATC:
"Well, he's assigned 10,500, but he's anywhere between 9,500 and 11,500."
