ATC Radio Chatter

Not Canadian, since altimeters here are rarely referred to as QNH and never in millibars unless requested (and almost nobody requests it), but I found it funny nonetheless.

ATC: "Pan Am 1, descend to 3,000 ft on QNH 1019."
Pan AM 1: "Could you give that to me in inches?"
ATC: "Pan Am 1, descend to 36,000 inches on QNH 1019"
