ANNOYING MR. SOFTEE TRUCK JINGLE NOW INTERFERING WITH MY LIFE

April 28th, 2013 · No Comments · Social Commentary

Annoying Mr Softee

I love Mr. Softee. My daughter loves Mr. Softee even Mr. than me. And to be sure, I love buying her (and myself) a cone.

However, after a day at the park and what is most likely a good day of slinging ice cream, the vendors should shut off that Jingle. I live on the Avenue now and to hear the Mr. Softee Jingle repeatedly as the truck goes by criss-crossing the neighborhood trying to wring every last sale out of kids and those who can’t resist is enough.

What do you think happens especially in the summer when my daughter is happily playing with her toys and hearing the faint sounds of Mr. Softee coming down the street – getting louder. Well she runs to the window of course.

Daddy can I have some ice cream?

It’s interesting to note that the late Margaret Thatcher (former Prime Minister of the UK) may have invented the stuff. Don’t believe me?

Well here. Enjoy this.
