My wife, the captain, and I were flying to AirVenture 2017 in our C-152 in July.  We were on an IFR flight plan out of Gainesville, GA (KGVL) and cruising at 5000 feet.  We were talking to Atlanta Center. 

Centre: ”Cessna 1234, cleared to FL230.”

We just looked at each other and laughed.  Fairly quickly, we received this.

Center: ”Cessna 1234, disregard.  I'll bet you got a kick out of that one."
