Make sure you go back far enough. The root cause of this sort of thing often starts with ATC saying, ‘I have an amended clearance for you’, and the pilot accepting it instead of saying ‘unable’.

I tried to find the ATC audio from youtube but can't seem to run across it. When I look up my recently viewed stuff it stops at Dec. 27, 2020. If I do find it, I'll post a link.

Several years ago I was flying from KSBA to KSTS up the California coast. Decided to fly lower than I usually do for a desolate coastline and was 5-6K feet for most of it. Over Monterey bay, I started descending down to 2000” to stay below KSFO class B, so I could stay just off the coastline. Upon contacting center as a curtesy, they asked if I would like clearance through class Bravo. I happily agreed and was instructed to climb to 3500. As soon as I entered their airspace, was given vectors out to sea for departing A380. Several minutes after the Airbus was gone, and I am getting farther off shore, I was cleared direct. It was a very awkward situation to be in, and in the future, i will stay clear of the airspace.
