I have a milkman who comes to my house and delivers milk to my door. But when I tell people that, they always say, "They still have milkmen?"

I first started on home delivery service when my son was an infant and running out of milk was an all-hands-on-deck, running-to-the-store-in-your-jammies-with-a-screaming-baby emergency.
