Remember when you were a kid? Remember how awesome it was to hear that ice cream truck, run outside to see that it was the legit truck and not that shady guy's van again, and get yourself some cold deliciousness??
It was the best!
Now, because technology is trying its hardest to destroy our childhood happiness, there's a new app that will literally beckon the truck to your door.
No running or excitement involved.
So if you live in San Francisco, New York, Seattle, Chicago, Boston, Washington or Toronto you may soon be able to call the ice cream truck using Uber, which is normally used for calling a car.
Here's what general manager Michael Pao has to say:
“We’re offering a new way to experience ice cream similar to transportation. Opening your app and tapping a button and having something show up is magical when it comes to transportation. We feel it will be magical for other things too.”
Nothing magical about ruining one of the best parts of being a kid!
At least with the old fashioned way you got some exercise chasing down the truck before you gained it back in frozen treats.
Shame on you!
Do U feel the same way??
