They're headed to a neighborhood that isn't as cheap as yours.

The one that comes down our court usually makes 4 to 5 sales. They drive fast down streets where they never have any sales.

There was an article in the New York Times. The guy used to come from Puerto Rico for a few months every summer. He worked hard for the summer and said that he made as much as an attorney for the year.

my dad wanted to have one years ago but my mother told him hell no.He asked her why,she told him because every time a kid came up to the truck but did not have any money to pay for something you would just give it to them and you would lose everything.

I knew a guy that had one, kept his booze in the freezer, was drunk most of the time. They go to the areas where the kids are a certain age, they don't come down my street, but I hear them in the neighborhood. Seems like it could be boring.

The money is in the 'hood. I wouldn't do it today though. My buddy owned a truck, he did well. He sold it when things started getting really bad.
