    Years ago, before we all had cell phones, when I was too cheap to buy a 2 meter rig, I tried a CB in the car, just to have a radio in the car for directions or emergencies. Absolutely useless. Unless you sounded like a member of the cast of Hee Haw after a gallon of Jack Daniels, nobody would come back to you -- IF YOU WERE LUCKY! Because usually, your request for assistance would be met by "Git offa thar, college boy!" or something similar, along with carriers, music, or general noise.

    Plain English was severely frowned up, and I think could get you cited by either the FCC or The Channel Master.

    One day on the way home from work I was listening to a conversation on the CB radio about who talks the best CB lingo. I listened for a while and finally couldn't resist the temptation and broke in. I told them that I thought they all sounded really awful and they should just stick to plain old English.

    I asked for one good reason to have any kind of lingo outside of plain English and none of them could give me an answer.
