My mum used to tell me the music on the ice cream van was actually the bin man, I heard her telling my 2 year old son this last week and he believed her, I might tell him the truth one day(!)
I used to think all ice cream truck drivers were molesters coming to kidnap kids
I used to think if you get married sometimes you'll get a kid by chance for no reason if you're lucky
I used to think if I ate fish my stomach would get filled up with ants
I thought I was dying when I saw the blueish color of the palm of my hand.
I grew up in a rural area and we didn't have any ice cream truck. So I thought they were just something that was made up for TV and movies.
For many years I believed that if the ice cream man was playing music it meant that there was nothing left! Thats what mum told us!!
When I was around 4 or 5, my dad always told me that the ice cream truck was the "music" truck. When he heard it, he would say "Oh, there goes the music truck," so that I woudn't be begging him for ice cream. When I became older, I realized what was really in the truck.
After watching "Chitty Chitty Bang Bang" I was afraid of the ice cream truck. I thought I would be kidnapped and put in jail, just like the movie.
I used to think that ice cream vans were "kid police". The police in my neighborhood drove around in van-like cars, and since I knew that police arrested adults, and that their cars played "music" when they were chasing somebody, I thought that the music coming from the ice cream vans meant the kid police were coming to arrest me.
When I was about 10 years old, I saw a van going by that looked like an ice cream van, except it said said things like tacos, quesidillas, burritos, etc., etc. on it. Therefore, I thought the guy was the taco man. I can still remember the look on the guy's face when I yelled "Taco Man! Come back!! I've got money! I want a taco!!!!" It's been 8 years since that day and I'm now almost 19.
I was a funny kid XD
my mum used to tell me when i was a lil boy that if the icecream van was playing music that it had run out of icecream and was only selling ciggerets, and i belived her
my mum used to tell me that it wasnt the ice cream man it was the potato man selling potatoes.meany!!!!
When I was younger and I heard about that there where strange things happening at area 51. I thought that ice cream vans where made. lol
when my family used to go camping with playgroup to faiser national park in vic, they had a big van painted to look like a cow and a horn that was a moo but cos he came from the top of the hill i thought he came from the moon. he was the moo man but i thought he was the MOON man.
When i was younger i saw the movie "The Ice Cream Man" and that really freaked me out, because i thought if i went to go get ice cream he would kidnapp me and kill me.So whenever the ice cream truck came around i would scream and then run and hide until he was gone.
My mum used to tell me that when the ice cream van came around it played the music to tell children that it was bed time. The van used to go past my house at noon.
When I was a kid, I never saw an ice cream truck. We lived in several different towns and in decent neighborhoods, ... I thought it was very sad and slightly odd ( even a bit suspicious) that they had been driven out of existance, apparently by the 7-11 stores we went to instead. I wanted to petition for their return, but didn't know who to take it to. I saw my first one when I was in my 30's and it was so funny, just like I imagined, I almost ran out too, waving money and yelling.
My mother always told my brother and I the ice-cream from the ice-cream truck or the "Dicky-Dee Man" (as we called it in Canada) was poisoned and we would get sick if we ate it. This was her "being cheap" effort to never buy it for us. But funny how when another kids parent from the neighbourhood bought it for us we never got sick or died???!!!!
The mailtruck was supposed to play music like the ice cream truck, but that the mailman's music box was broken.
i used to think that ice cream guys would kidnap kids and you could find little bits of kids in the ice cream. i always feared the face-shaped ones the most coz i thought those were heads of kids.
thank you to my little-kid insomnia and late night specials!!!
When I was two or three my mom told me the ice cream truck was the Music Truck. His job was to come around and play music. (Every time he came around I had to "go inside" and "help my mom")
My mom used to tell me that the ice cream man wold kidnap me if i went neer him, I didnt believ her so she got one of her rich friends to rent the actual icecream mans truck and get him to fake kidnap me.
I didn't go near him for 5 years 'till my friend told me it was a hoax.
