Short Final: Be Careful What You Wish For


Overheard just after landing at Austin, Texas:

Cessna 0DS: “Austin Tower, Cessna Five Seven Zero Delta Sierra, ready for departure.”

No response for a short time.

Tower: “Was that American Twelve Sixty‑one calling?”

Cessna 0DS: “I wish. No, it was Cessna Five Seven Zero Delta Sierra.”

Unidentified: “Be careful what you wish for.”
