Mailman has a heartwarming reaction when 8-year-old leaves cold drinks out for him on a hot day

Carmine McDaniel, 8 years old, has always had a good relationship with his mailman. On a record hot day of over 105 degrees in Newport News, Virginia, McDaniel was concerned for his beloved mailman and left out cold water and Gatorade in a cooler on his front porch.

“I just thought because it was really hot outside and I didn’t want him to maybe pass out or anything because they are really important so people can pay their bills and stuff like that. I didn’t want him to pass out pretty much,” McDaniel told WVEC.

His mom posted a sweet video to Instagram showing the mailman’s appreciation for the small gesture.

“Yes! I’ll take ’em all!” the mailman said when he saw the note. “I’ll take a water and a Gatorade.”

He told WVEC that these small gestures make the summer much more bearable.

“It makes it worthwhile,” said the mailman.
