Overheard in IFR Magazine's "On the Air"

While cruising at flight levels in a Cheyenne, we heard the following between an American airliner and Miami Center:

American: Center, American Fourteen Eighty-Two looking for higher.

Center: Didn't hear you check in.

American: "First time I've heard your voice. I must've forgot.

Center: That happens when you're over twenty-six or seven.

American: I hope you're talking thousands of feet.

Center: No, age. Sorry.
