Earlier last month, Martha Sugalski took to Facebook and posted a video of her triplets waiting excitedly for three garbage collectors. But they are not just any garbage collectors.
These men have been doing this round in the Orlando, Florida, area since the triplets were 2 months old.
“I would walk with them in the stroller around the neighborhood. We would see the truck, and over weeks we would wave and they would honk the horn; then over months they would stop the truck and get out and say hi—then it turned into this friendship,” Sugalski told the Epoch Times.
The children—Heaton, Wilder, and Holden—are almost 3 years old, and they normally spend time with Rob, Chad, and Andrew for about 10–15 minutes every Tuesday and Friday. Sugalski said they have been doing this for two years.
“If you asked the babies when is ‘garb’ day they get all excited and yell out Tuesdays and Fridays, and then they start telling you how much they love them.”
The video, which shows the children waiting outside their Seminole County home to give the three men Gatorade, has since been shared more than 500,000 times.
“Every week we catch up on life, what’s going on with them and their families and see what’s new,” Sugalski said in a Facebook post. “I am blown away by the response from our simple videos that we’ve been doing for almost 3 years,” she wrote.
