Today, I waved money at a passing ice cream truck and it kept going. So apparently I can't even get a date with a Sno Cone. FML

My phone doesnt show the gender and location but when i read this for some reason, I imagine a grown man in a robe chasing down an ice cream truck, please tell me this true.

Your parents lied to you, then! Ice cream trucks usually are playing music, often one that children are familiar with, to evoke excitement (and thus make them likelier to buy from it). I've never heard of an ice cream truck running out of ice cream. It's possible, I suppose, but not likely, as they tend to restock whenever they get low. It may be out of your favourite kind, but not out of everything. Most likely your parents didn't want to waste money buying it from there, when it's far cheaper to buy it at a grocery store.

was it playing music? my parents always told me, if it played the music, it ran out od ice cream :( so sorry but it probably wasn't about you.

Was it not the other way around? Those on duty always play music over here, so I imagine the silent ones might be not currently working.

Your parents were smart, it's actually the opposite. When the music is running, their in business.

I don't think toastbrot is being serious, instead joking about an obvious lie his/her parents supposedly told so they wouldn't have to buy him/her ice cream. I doubt toastbrot really believes it.

And who we have .... **drum roll please** IS A MAN!! congratulations! (not with a robe though lol)

If you consider this an FML I envy your life.

Possibly the fact that you think waving money at someone on the street is 'making a date' might be part of the problem.

Once it involves cash changing hands, it stops being a "date."

he might have either been off duty or just didn't see you. either way that sucks. I've had ice cream trucks pass me too, its always a major downer.

Lol- The good ole ice cream truck decoy- those were robbers casein out The neighborhood... Sorry OP you didn't have enough cash in hand

If you wanted the possibility of a date, you should go to an icecream or yoghurt parlor and have a scoop or 2. You'll probably start a conversation over the flavours with another patron; which is always an ice-breaker. Good luck!

I laughed way too hard at this. sorry op.

There's something wrong if you're trying to get dates by waving money at them.
