The people responsible for sending the ice cream truck around my neighborhood playing "It's a Small World."

Dear Ice Cream Truck Driver,

In these tough economic times, I realize we all have to make a living somehow. And selling ice cream to kids is a decent gig. But really--can you please just turn off the "It's a Small World" music? I mean, it's gotta be the most horrendous song in the history of the world. And that extra musical flourish at the end is, well, insipid. It's so annoying, it makes my teeth hurt like from the sound of nails on a chalkboard. Maybe you could install a sweet little bell to alert us of your arrival in the neighborhood? If you could just do this one thing for me, I promise to buy some ice cream from you. I noticed that no one in the hood EVER comes out to buy from you so probably my investment will make your day. And help you keep your job - maybe get a promotion off the truck route. I promise if you promise.
