What are some annoying things that controllers have done to you?

For example,Don’t tell me to descend to 1,500 when there are mountains higher than me and in front of me.

Me: Singapore 002, ready to takeoff runway 02 Left (already there)
Tower: Singapore 002, Taxi to runway 20 right.
Me: Singapore 002, ready to takeoff runway 02 Left
Tower: Singapore 002, Taxi to runway 20 right.
Me: Singapore 002, ready to takeoff runway 02 Left
Tower: Please follow instructions
Tower: Please check the help pages for instructions on following ATC commands
Tower: Singapore 002, Taxi to runway 20 right.

It’s insulting and plus the tower is the one who needs help. Normal traffic flow is taking off at 02L.

Mine is the most annoying… (the callsigns are indicative as I forgot who exactly were involved)

WMKK GND: SIA181, say intentions.
WMKK GND: SIA237, say intentions.
WMKK GND: Singapore 002, say intentions.
WMKK GND: Singapore 975, say intentions.
WMKK GND: Singapore 116 Heavy, say intentions.
SIA116: Standby.

Note that our aircraft were parked. Beacon lights on or not, it doesn’t matter. Our aircraft were parked!

Are you sure that’s correct? Tower can’t give taxi instructions, only ground frequencies can :)

Singapore ground: You’re on an active airport, please contact Singapore Ground on 118.6

You get the point.

You most likely mean playground server controllers not coordinating between ground and tower control, and therefore using both ends of one runway. I’ve seen quite a few doing that.

They should at least study the flow… If they’re not going to, it’s just called “越幫越忙” (making it more difficult instead of easier)

Or when you’re holding short of your departure runway and tower won’t clear you because an aircraft is inbound… 10 miles away!
