they have generators running when they pull into the driveway. odd they can keep the generator running 24 x 7 with no fuel can on board. I have a policy. they leave me a $500 retainer and I will buy $50 worth of their suspicious stuff labeled meat.

I don't know where he gets his meat from but the black guy who sells meat to bars in the area late at night is ageless. He looks the same as he did 30 years ago. Wonder if he is a vegetarian?

Anyone remember that energetic, aggressive weirdo selling high quality stereo speakers out of the back of his white van with PA plates? I miss that guy. He would circle the Elm Grove exit like a starving vulture. He used to "eye me up" as if I were a T-bone steak.

What about the food trucks on Route 2 in Hancock County? Is there someone who monitors those individuals? I know there are regularly police cars on that stretch, does anyone ever check them out??

My expeience with the meat sellers were not good either. Purchased Approx 200.00 worth of meat from a guy selling meat out of the back of his truck. Meat was terrible and I called the company whose name was on the sales slip. Never got an answer. Phone always rang, but never answered. A year later another meat salesman stopped at the door, same company. I explained to him the issue of no response to phone aclls and the bad meat. He was very understanding and said he would personally take care of this for me. Loaded up the meat I still had in the freezer. Never saw him again. DO NOT BUY FROM STREET VENDERS. TRUST ME

Say a little over 2 years ago, 2 guys pulled in to my grandfathers driveway and tried to sell him a bunch of meat. They almost had him until I stepped in and shot the deal down. They stormed out and one of the guys threw the wrapped steaks all over my grandfathers driveway.

Hate to be the sucker who bought those steaks.
