Every Tuesday and Friday, Tony Puccetti’s wait by the window. When Scott — their regular collector for Malone’s Refuse Service — arrives, they wave excitedly. He always waves back.
Roman’s 3rd birthday was last Tuesday. Earlier, Tony and his wife spoke to “Mr. Scott.” They said they’d leave balloons by their driveway. Could he grab them and honk his horn? It would make Roman’s birthday — because he wanted his theme to be “Garbage Truck.”
Mr. Scott did that — and a lot more.
He brought Roman a gift. He led him by the hand to the back of the truck. Then he lifted Roman up, so he could help compact the trash. (Click below for the video.)
It was the best birthday Roman could imagine.
Thanks, Mr. Scott. You’re Roman’s — and ours — Unsung Hero of the week.
