However, he executed the gesture covertly, placing it on their porch before returning to his truck. Later, when Rachel, the boy’s mother, opened the door, she discovered the gift without a note or card. Saul, Aiden’s father, reviewed doorbell camera footage and was astonished to find that their favorite garbage man had left the present—a toy garbage truck, ensuring Aiden now had his own truck.
Aiden is thoroughly enjoying his new toy. His enthusiasm for trucks is evident as he can distinguish between various types and eagerly awaits Tuesday and Friday mornings when Jose and his garbage truck make their rounds. Almost every day, he rushes outside upon hearing the garbage truck, waving at Jose and the crew collecting trash.
Aiden’s love for garbage trucks is so profound that he dressed as a garbage collector for Halloween, sporting an adorable uniform and beanie, similar to what Jose wears. Since then, he has continued to wear the vest and beanie nearly every day, according to KHOU 11.
In appreciation, Rachel plans to gift Jose some delicious homemade cookies upon his return from vacation in a week. Touched by Jose’s kind act, she exclaimed, “Who does that? Who just buys a kid you see occasionally a gift for Christmas to brighten his day and make his Christmas a little extra special?”
