The weather looked a little iffy so I had filed IFR the night before. In the morning the weather was good, but I decided to fly the trip IFR anyway.

At the hold short line I called "ready." The tower told me to hold for release due to an inbound SkyWest Brasilia. Before i could say "I'll depart VFR," though, the Brasilia cancelled IFR.

Now I was in karmic debt.

Fifteen miles from the destination Center cleared me to climb so he could release a SkyWest RJ. "How about `cancel IFR'?" I came back. "Those are the magic words!" he replied, and I continued my descent.

SkyWest cancelled for me. I cancelled for SkyWest. Now I was in karmic balance.
