Every garbage day, 2-year-old triplets wait excitedly for their garbage collectors – Andrew Black, Rob Whitmore, and Chad Cover – to show up.
“The crew gets out of the truck and they high-five the babies and give fist bumps and we talk,” their mother, Martha Sugalski, told Buzzfeed. “They spend 10 to 15 minutes with us every Tuesday and Friday.”
Holden, Heaton and Wilder were just two months old when they started to notice the garbage truck in their Florida neighborhood. Their mom would always wave to the men on the truck, the driver would honk the horn in response and the babies would look up. Andrew, the driver, would wave at the babies. Soon enough he would get out for some high fives and fist bumps, along with his two co-workers. Now it’s a twice a week tradition for the three toddlers and three trash collectors to hang out a bit. Even when one of the men had to take time off due to an injury, he came by to say hello. “Every time I see them, they just bring me joy,” he says.
Martha added that her daughter, Holden, is particularly close with Rob, which she believes is because they are both on the quiet side.
“She’s always the last one to come running down the driveway, but she goes straight to Mr. Rob every single time,” she said.
Martha posts videos of the six best friends on Facebook, and millions of people have watched them
