DH answered the door this time and politely told him we'd already bought a side of beef for the year.

They did (almost) stop at my house as they were driving by & I was walking down the driveway. While the truck was still rolling, the passenger guy hopped out to give me the spiel. My response, "I'm vegetarian." (Which is true.) I don't think the truck had even fully stopped before the dude was back in the truck & they were speeding away.

The meat truck is a very old topic of conversation on these boards. I don't know which year we first had reports of this but every once in a while, somebody has a first visit. I know I had my first one either this year or last and reported it on here too. Mine was so silly- I live on a small street that goes nowhere in one city on the south east side. This guy claimed he had a cancellation in another city which is about 25 minutes drive from me passing through almost the entire width of my city and so he ends up on my tiny street- no, I don't think so.
So it's just a guy that is selling meat out of the back of a pickup truck? That seems like questionable behavior. Is he a farmer or something?

Where I live, there is a lot of seafood. You will frequently find guys selling seafood off the back of their pickups - in the summer.
