Zelda: Buying Meat At The Door?

Zelda: Between 5 and 5:30 last night a guy pulled into my driveway in a huge open-bed pickup, rang my doorbell, pulled out a lamenated tri-fold card with pictures of meat and asked, “I'm sure you've enjoyed steak dinners at the xxxxx restaurant in Coeur d'Alene. [I can't remember which name he gave.] I'm offering you the same excellent steaks…” blah, blah, blah. Meanwhile my dogs are barking up a storm and I'm thinking, “This guy is trying to sell me meat from the back of his truck!?” It wasn't even a refrigerated vehicle, just a jacked-up pickup with a toolbox behind the cab.

Question: Have any of you had this experience?  Guys showing up selling meat door to door out of their truck?
