He opened the side door and I recoiled at the horrible stench of ... rotting meat. The floor of his van was covered in stained packer boxes. No way was he going to move any meat in this manner.

Honestly, it smelled so terrible, it was comical.
Geez, that's so totally awful it makes me think the man may have had some mental and/or substance abuse problems. It's hard to fathom anyone in a rational, clear-headed state of mind actually attempting this, much less thinking anyone would pay money for what is clearly garbage (no hyperbole).
