to go out and tell the ice cream van man to fuck off with his fucking repetitive music outside the fucking house and stop coming into the close? No-one goes to the van, ever, as his ice cream is rubbish and right now it's FUCKING FOGGY AND COLD OUTSIDE!

I feel better already.

He started up again a few weeks ago. He plays the same tune for up to a minute and a half at a time. Same time every day, 6 days a week. There are only 20 houses here.

WIBU to ask him to fuck off, then fuck off some more, And when he gets there, fuck off from there too. Then fuck off some more?

*I know he has a living to make, but he's hardly making it here, is he?!

When I lived in a dodgy part of a large city, the ice cream van sold drugs in winter. quite popular around the estate he was too

Snowball, do you live in the NE? Same round here in some areas. I'd definitely not ask for 'sprinkle'. grin

I was going to post about the drugs thing too, it's an open secret that you can get more than just confectionery from the ice cream van here. He also used to sell cigarettes in singles when I was at school.

I cannot stop laughing at this.

we have an ice cream van. (really....just ice cream)


me - no.
queue drama, every single day.

Thing is, his ice creams are delicious. But expensive, and should be a treat not a daily deal.

But there are about 4 families in our close that buy their kids ice creams every day. So that is $$$$ eveyr day on junk.

Really? How do they afford it? Why do they do it?

I wouldn't mind, but my kids are 9, 12 and 14! Old enough to know by now, but still, when the music goes....

DailyFailstinks Mon 13-Mar-17 13:22:08

Definitely selling drugs!

Our area's too posh for ice cream vans.

SummerHouse Mon 13-Mar-17 14:07:14

Was hoping for a good old BO related rant and got ice cream. I am sweaty with that..

I mean happy.

CheshireChat Mon 13-Mar-17 15:18:49

We used to live in an area with an ice cream van- I fucking hated the bastard! Nobody bought anything either and it was around 7 bloody days a week, even on a Sunday in winter at about 7 in the evening in the freezing weather confusedhmm.

This is shaping up to be my favourite thread.

<passes round the 99s>

VivienneWestwoodsKnickers Mon 13-Mar-17 15:44:03

The bastard was back on Saturday and Sunday. No evidence of drugged up kids, but will keep eyes open. wink

I am actually sweaty today though - I ran out of antiperspirant. Gah.

Our van (which most likely sells drugs, being in a pretty rough area!) plays Raindrops Keep Falling on my Head, just far enough away that it's quiet and is piped subliminally into your brain. DH and I find ourselves randomly singing it hours later, with no memory of hearing the van pass grin

amusedbush Mon 13-Mar-17 15:59:13

Fucking bastard, I just caught myself humming Raindrops Keep Falling on my Head, not even five minutes since I typed that post.

I swear that song is an instrument of torture!
