Banks are now bribing you with ice cream

Icecream Webster Bank is introducing “ice cream truck brand ambassadors” via Horizon Media. From the release: “Through June 29, the financial institution will be giving away ice cream in a branded Webster Bank ice cream truck at a number of parks, recreational and shopping areas throughout Westchester County in New York and lower Fairfield County in Connecticut.” The stuff is free, so there’s no need to worry about your savings melting away (ha!). Maybe I should change banks. At mine, the tellers won’t even let me have any of those lollipops in the baskets by their windows. They say those are “for kids.” Hey, does Junior have Platinum Checking and two IRAs? I want my damn lolly!
