Be honest: when was the last time you said thank you to your garbage man?
If you’re like most people, you probably don’t even remember the last time you spoke to the human being who takes away your waste and helps keep your home clean, let alone thanked him. (Full disclosure: we’re guilty too.)
Fortunately, not everyone is indifferent. Three-year-old Brooklyn Andrack of Bloomington, Illinois recently made her garbage man’s day when she decided to share one of her birthday cupcakes with the friendly driver with an even friendlier smile.
“Every Thursday, my heart is full when I see the joy that our amazing garbage man brings Brooklyn when he honks and waves at her with a big smile,” as Brooklyn’s mom wrote on the City of Bloomington’s Facebook page.
Check out the video to see the special surprise that Brooklyn had in store for Delvar, her favorite garbage man. It’s a perfect reminder of why it pays to be positive.
