Overheard on the ground control frequency at Midway Airport (MDW) in Chicago:

Vanguard XXX: "Midway Ground, Vanguard XXX push from gate YY with Whiskey."

MDW Ground: "Vanguard XXX, push back approved; point your nose toward the city."

Vanguard 123: "Vanguard 123, wilco."

Then, a couple of minutes later:

MDW Ground: "Vanguard XXX, just which city did you think I was talking about?"
