What is your CB handle and how did you get it?

Man on the Street



I don’t really use one. They used to be good to get info, but nowadays people are fighting all the time on it. There’s too much clutter, especially in big cities.

“Bigfoot.” I think my dad had [the name] first back in ’68. That, and the size of my feet.

“T-Y.” Back when I first started out, I was the youngest person in my company to get hired. It stands for “too young.”

“Cookie.” It was my dad’s handle. He was a driver for 40 years. I took it when he passed to honor his memory. He got it stealing cookies from the cookie jar as a kid in Vermont.

“Hotrod.” It’s my nickname. It’s what my dad named me when I was born. Since it’s different than my real name, I decided to keep it as my handle.
