I haven't seen a milkman in years(1976). Do they still exist?

Around here the "milkman" means a crackdealer who delivers.

I think that must be a thing from the "olden days" as my mom would call it... I have lived in metro Chicago for 19 of my 19 years and never seen a milkman.

I remember those on the front porch as well. Early 70's was the last time I remember anything like that.

Hell, when I was a kid not only did we have a milkman driving around but we also had a pastry guy. He drove a Suburban and when the back doors opened he would pull out drawers of doughnuts and all kinds of good shit.

A thing of the past.

I was born in 1970

I don't think we ever had a milkman, but when I was 5 or 6 we still had that metal box out by our back door.

76' was about the last I could actually recollect seeing a milkman.
We were living in Waipahu and it would get delivered with eggs.
When we moved back to the mainland = no more milkman

Almost everyone on my block had the metal box on their porch

We still buy milk in glass bottles, but they have plastic caps now.

Good grief!

My hometown had TWO milk delivery companies. I think the last one retired around 1970 or so. Good ol' Emil Huff. Hell of a nice guy.

I can remember the milkman making deliveries and picking up empty milk bottles back in, I guess it was 1968 or 69 in rural Kentucky when I was a wee lad. I think the profession sort of "went away" in the early 70s due to jealous husbands who invested in booby traps/vicious dogs. I guess grocery stores had a little to do with it as well.

Come to think of it, there used to be several professions where burly, horny men (primarily ex-rodeo clowns and paroled convicts) would "sell" things door to door during the day while housewives were home alone.

Regardless, it's common knowledge that everyone was more "virtuous" back then and this "cheating spouse" thing is a recent development due to newfangled lax morals...

Yes, we have one or two companies that deliver in N. Colorado, one still does glass bottles with plastic lids.

But it is like $4.50 a gallon, it is of course hormone free.

Jim Oberweis has a dairy that delivers.

They give you a big "Igloo" style cooler instead of the old metal boxes.

And yeah, it's close to $4/gal instead of $2.39, but it's good.


I remember getting home delivery with the old wide mouthed squared off glass bottles with the foil & paper lids!

Hell, my house has a "Milk and parcel delivery" pass-through box on the side.

You both look like you were born in 53 and I was born in 66.

Yes, there are still milkman. If you live in the western suburbs of Chicago daily milk delivery is a phone call away. Several of my neighbors have a daily service. Truck comes by about 2-3 in the morning every day.

Still a milkman around. Both my parents still get milk from him. They're in Burnsville. He brings all kinds of stuff other than milk too. Good guy. When I was in hs he would come in and eat crepes (sp?) with us for breakfast.

I would like some milk from the milkman's wife's tits.
Link Posted: 12/26/2005 10:04:42 PM EDT
I remember our milkman distinctly. Bald guy named Al. We had a wooden Carnation Dairy milkbox on the front porch, and Al would deliver every Tuesday.

We do still have a dairy that delivers in my area. They even have a webpage listing the milkmen by name.
