From conversation to story

I overheard a woman say to another woman: "I didn't want him coming in, he had blood all down his front".  I didn't hear the rest of her conversation and can only speculate as to why he had blood on him:

1) the man had been in a fight.

2) the man had been in a car accident. 

3) the man was a butcher.

The first two of these explanations are fairly obvious. The third is less obvious and could (with some thought) be the spark for an original story.
