I've been given the wrong code before, an already assigned code, and the controller thought I was the other aircraft that was already squawking that code. I was given a vector and then flew into some airspace that I wasn't supposed to all because the controller thought I was 60 miles west of my actual position. If he would have told me though "don't bother me no more", I would have told him to squawk 1200, maintain VFR altitude and have a nice day.
English? Mother... Nevermind. Would you be so kind as to translate to the non pilots here?
