Jamie’s maternal grandfather was a “refuse driver.” In other words, he was a garbage man. That is a job that is, apparently, the coolest in the world according to young children.
Our trash is picked up twice a week, on Tuesday and Friday. When we first moved here the big kids were often found those mornings excitedly watching the trash guys pick up our trash. They aren’t so interested in watching anymore, but Fritz most definitely is.
When we told the big kids that their great-grandfather had been a garbage man their eyes got big and they got incredibly excited. Truly the coolest job in the world!
