The guy sounds ancient, needs to retire.

It's similar to the controllers who want to hear "hold short" of a runway rather than just saying "short of"

One's a position, the other an instruction, both 2 words, why be so lazy? Just repeat the instruction back to the controller.

CYA

One guy gets testy, other guy gets testier in response. Standard part of the human experience, nothing to see move along.

(Except if you're gonna try to clown the other guy, it helps to be correct.)

No, you win TOTD for feeling like you need to be cool and say ďshort ofĒ knowing full well the controller has to hear the correct verbiage or make you say it again. It just astonishes me when I hear you clowns unable to accomplish that simple task.

I had a Miami Center Tracon controller do this to me once. It was a busy freq at the moment, so I was just responding with the flight number vs full call sign. I did it again another time or two inadvertently. Again. We were busy, He was busy. Then he screamed at me to say "full call sign." So I did from there on out. Do controllers have "checks" like pilots do? I was assuming that he was on a "check ride" with his agency. So I didn't push back. He was just trying to do the right thing.

Iíll just say this, Iíve been corrected by ATC in ATL more in my career than probably all of the other airports Iíve operated into combined. I donít know why that is, sometimes I feel like theyíre splitting hairs with the things Iíve been told to repeat. Theyíre not wrong with the corrections, just one of those places that doesnít let anything slide no matter what the circumstance.
