Howmany times a week or day do you have door to door salespeople or street vendors including the ice cream man come down your street?

We have at least 3 ice cream trucks a day and last week one came down at 11:30pm! We have the guy who sells corn and other mexican snacks and then we have a lady selling tamales every Saturday and Sunday at 7am. And she doesn't say tameles in a happy energetic way she says it as if she is moaning in pain, taaammmmmaaaaalllleeessssss!

  • well my neighborhood is having a series of new houses being built so construction workers are there from as early as 8am to as late as 6pm. Ever since they've been working Ive seen this bicycle ice cream selling person circling the area where they work and

    a Taco truck or mobile mexican restaurant parked in a lot right next to where they are working... I dont mind it saves on gas if Im really hungry

  • we have lived her 2yrs, and 5at my old address and i honestly can say i have never had even an ice cream truck go down my street, we lived in an urban area with lots of kids, only twice did it go by, and i was at a friends at the end of block, it came at like 10pm and 5om earlier that same day,other than that it would go 2blocks down, but never near mine, and our current address, we live in apts and have never had a salesperson. kinda sucks, miss out on some good things, like the food things, and the fun for kids when they see ice cream trucks.
