So I'm sitting at the Coulmbia NJ TA getting ready to head down to Asbury Park NJ to deliver a load of Pepsi products to the bottler there. The last time I was here as I was walking to the building I had a guy drive up in a van and try to sell me a "Home Theater" System the exchange went like this: Van Guy: Hey how are you doing? Me: Ok Van Guy: Would you be interested in buying a Home Theater System? It's not stolen or anything it's last year's model and my boss just wants to get rid of it. Me: Sorry still not interested! You pitched this same system to me here two months ago.... Exact same pitch. Van Guy: Oh Me: Take it easy dude.... Walking away. What is the most strangest thing that someone tried to sell you at a truck stop?

Its the white van stereo scam. I was approached back in the 90s by these guys . They had a van full of speakers in boxes.

On the CB in Gary IN there is a guy who says he sells, Dell laptops for a $100 bill, flashlight/stun gun combo for $20 I think and some other totally not stolen stuff.

Also when I drove a Taxi/Limo there was a guy at Midway airport who would come and try to sell burgers and chicken sandwiches he had ready made plastic bag and another who sold cologne from a store that closed 10+ years ago.
