In my household, giving hot coffee to the garbage men on cold days has been a long standing practice (we also give them Gatorade in the summer). These guys ride ride around on the back step of their trucks all morning without breaks, lifting heavy loads every few seconds. They don't have much time to warm up in the cab of the truck between runs, so they spend most of their day in the cold. By the time they get to your house, they have probably been outside for a couple hours.
