Doorbell rings, E goes to the window and tells me it's a truck labeled "Atlantic Beef Company". I think about not answering, but decide it's my chance to point out the No Soliciting sign I put up after being bothered by too many door-to-door salespeople. Guess the guy saw it after he rang the bell, since he was exiting the driveway when I opened the door.

Must be the car in the driveway that makes those salesmen stop. Maybe I should have found a bright red No Soliciting sign instead of the black and white one.

A quick check on teh intarwebs shows Atlantic Beef Co has a BBB rating of F, and a Rip-Off Report saying the meat seems to be a decent price, but then is crappy quality and has a lot of hidden fat on the cuts. Other search results say there's a lot of high-pressure sales, and their cuts are 7oz when the salesperson said "about 9oz".

I'm glad my sign drove them away before I had to talk to them.
