Trucker lingo-- does anyone know what this conversation means?
While driving home (14+ hours) cross-country we stopped at a restaurant that for some reason was experiencing interference on their overhead public address system from the CBs of passing truckers on the interstate. (Just south of Chicago in Merrillville, Indiana)
We ended up hearing a few conversations from passing CB users that was inadvertently being broadcast over the restaurant’s speakers (!!)
I didn’t understand much of it—but wonder if any Jellies out there know any trucker lingo?
The most oft repeated phrase I heard was: “Basketball Johnson running a streaker.”
He kept asking if anyone else was on that channel. I’m guessing his CB handle was “Basketball Johnson”..but what does it mean that he was running a streaker?
FWIW, I already looked on Wikipedia (http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/List_of_CB_slang) and didn’t find the answer there…
