ATL_GND: ASQ### you're flight plan is not gonna work for me, nor any other controller in the industry. I'm going to send you a new one with what I'd like you to take...

So, whilst working Fort Worth Center, had an AAL behind another AAL. The second AAL was holding short of the runway.

FTW_CTR: AALxxx, Rwy 35L, line up and wait.
AALxxx: Okay, we're holding short and we're parked at the gate

Don't know how we got "parked at the gate" out of line up and wait but...

During Bradley Bash over private message:
JBUXXX: Boston Center I'm leaving for 5-10 mins to take a bath because I feel dirty.

Later:

JBUXXX: JBUXXX is back on duty after bath.

Controlling APP this evening

VFR aircraft takes off into class C airspace

Me: XXX, say altitude leaving
Pilot: Say again
Me: XXX, say altitude leaving
Pilot: Roger, you have a good one as well

Not quite how that works...

This is about 2 weeks after gaining my S1 rating at ZID working SDF_GND:
Me: UALXXX, Taxi to Rwy 17L via D.
Pilot: Ground, I didn't know runways had letters.
At this point, I'm utterly confused. After a moment of silence, I realize what he means. Taxiway D is a long taxiway.
Me: UALXXX, are you talking about the Taxiway?
Pilot: What taxiway? I'm talking about this long, skinny runway. How does UPS have a hub here?
After that, he disconnects.

Welcome to Vatsim.

Hopefully you meant: Runway 17L, taxi via D. ;)
