Little Girl Surprises Her Favorite Garbage Man With Birthday Cupcake

Garbage men are used to collecting stuff. It is, after all, what they do. But one garbage man in Bloomington, Illinois, recently collected something totally unexpected: a birthday cupcake from his biggest fan, 3-year-old Brooklyn Andracke.

“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,” wrote Brooklyn’s mom on the City of Bloomington Facebook page. “And today…Brooklyn and I wrapped up one of her birthday cupcakes and waited for him. When he came down our street, she ran to the corner. He pulled over, got out and gave us his BIG smile. Brooklyn was instantly speechless as she handed him the cupcake. I explained to him that he makes our day every Thursday, and we really appreciate the honking and waving, and how special of a day it is for us.”

Read on for more of this heartwarming story.

More info: City of Bloomington

“My heart is full when I see the joy that our amazing garbage man brings Brooklyn,” wrote Brooklyn’s mom

Brooklyn is his biggest fan. She waits for him every Thursday!

Recently it was her birthday and she wanted to give him one of her cupcakes

“I explained to him that he makes our day every Thursday,” wrote Brooklyn’s mom

The story isn’t over there though, because next week Delvar had his own surprise for Brooklyn!

“He pulled out the most amazing, awesome and generous birthday gifts for her”

“His kindness towards her has touched my heart in a way I can’t describe. Thursdays ROCK! Thank you, Delvar!”

I'm nearly 6 years late,but this is too cute. I wonder if he is still in waste control and does she still run outside to see him now that she is 9 or 10 years old.

You all are so gullible. If you ask me, mommy has a crush on the garbage man and is using her daughter to get in his pants (sort of like when guys use their dogs to pick up chicks).
