The crushing realization of finding out a McDonald’s ice cream machine is out of service is an actual thing…

Years ago I bought a Mickey-D’s ice cream cone and took it with me on the bus ride across campus. It was September and in the 90s (30s C) in a bus with no AC. I got caught up talking with a friend and forgot I was holding the ice cream. When I got to my stop I took a big bite into a warm spiral of unmelted foam.

Never could have any of their ice cream again.
