Message To: The milkman

Thanks to the milkman who saved my mates one snowy night! 8 of my uni friends had come to stay for the weekend. We got 2 taxis home at 4am but the second taxi lost us. My 4 mates in it didn't know my address. They wandered round in the snow, freezing. A milkman drove past, asked if they were OK, then told them all to jump on the back of his milk float, and drove them round the estate until they found a house with lights on - our house. Thanks so much to that milkman, B&P dairymen!
