Overheard in IFR Magazine's "On the Air"

I heard this blooper on Albuquerque Center frequency:

"Albuquerque, Big Bird One Two Three level at 280 and would like to continue climb."

"I show 280 as your requested altitude."

Airliner (without hesitation) :
"Me too. I'll have to ask my captain about that."

(The subject was dropped.)
