They have specific jobs in England.Ernie Wilkins, MilkmanErnie Wilkins has been a milkman for 20 years. He loves his job, but not everybody can understand why. For a start, he has to get up early every day. He gets up at one oclock in the morning and starts working at two oclock. Then he puts all the mild onto his electric milk truck or lorry. And nowadays milkmen dont just bring you milk. They often sell juice, cram, yogurt, bread and potatoes. It usually takes him three quarters of an hour to prepare his truck or lorry. Then he drives round the streets in his town and leaves bottles of milk and other items at his customers doors. When they wake up, everything is waiting there.Ernie loves the peace and quiet of the early morning. He loves being outdoors, but he doesnt like when its very cold in the winter. Watching the sun come up is always a special moment for him. Ernie is very caring. He loves the fact that everybody knows him and old people often ask him for help. When Ernie finishes work at 9am, he is tired but happy.Penny Wilcox, Lollipop personPenny Wilcox is 55 years old. She doesnt want to work long hours and so the job she started last year is perfect for her. She just works for half an hour in the morning and half an hour in the afternoon. The official name for her job is a School Crossing Guide. She works outside the school at the times when students arrive in the morning and leave in the afternoon. When there is a group of students waiting, she walks into the middle of the road and stops the traffic. She wears bright yellow jacket and carries a sign which say STOP. The sign looks like a lollipop thats why everybody calls Penny and her colleagues lollipop people. When drivers see her and her sign, they must stop and let the children cross. Penny is a very sociable person and she loves talking to the children each morning. The only thing she doesnt like is that some drivers get angry and shout when they have to stop. Penny thinks that in the past drivers were friendlier. She's unhappy that there have been some serious accidents and lollipop people have been hurt. But Penny knows a lot of children and wont stop working if they need her.
