Fun With CB Lingo

Posted in Blog, News  
Monday, September 2, 2019

When driving a rig for NTB, you won’t be driving through Beantown, but you might make a trip through Beer Town. We hope you don’t encounter a gator on the road, and that you know your route to fuel up with some go-go juice. You might even find yourself driving by an outdoor TV in some of these midwest towns. 

 

If you have a bear on your tail and he’s got the discos on, best to ease up on the hammer and give ‘em space to get by.
 

As you pass yardstick after yardstick, keep the greasy side down and drive right of the zipper.

 

Did you see that portable parking lot hanging out in the hammer lane?

 

Pull into the watering hole to rehydrate and hope you don’t get stuck behind a kiddie car in the fall, a salt shaker this winter, or Buster Brown in the spring with all those frequent stops. 

 

This is Little Red Hen, have a good day.

 

Over and out.
