Forty-three years a milkman - level 2
This story is about a British milkman. In 1972, John started delivering milk, and he kept his job until now. He delivered 4,731,764 litres of milk. Now, he is retiring.
However, he says that his job is about a lot more than just milk. It is about customers. A lot of people are lonely, and they get very happy when they see John and talk for a few minutes. It makes their day.
Because of his job, John also found the love of his life. His wife was originally just a customer.
Difficult words: deliver (to bring something to a customer at his or her house), retire (to stop working formally), customer (somebody who buys something).
You can read the original story and watch the video in the Level 3 section.
