4-yr-old takes off running towards sanitation worker challenging him in dance-off too good to ignore

The sanitation workers in one area of Georgetown, South Carolina, do more than just make sure that everyone’s recycling gets cleared away and loaded into the truck. They also bring a little extra cheer to the area’s neighborhoods and the kids who live there.

This friendly group of sanitation workers honk and wave as they go about their work each day. They have even been known to check-in and ask how people are doing. They are some of the friendliest people around. It’s no wonder that the neighborhood kids can’t wait for the next time they come driving down the street.

Their arrival has become something to genuinely look forward to.


Waiting for the truck to arrive

In fact, that is exactly what four-year-old Finn was doing one day. He was standing out in the driveway, waiting for them to come by and collect the recycling. It was right then that the boy decided that he wanted to dance. So, he told his mom that was what he was going to do, and then he danced.

Timed perfectly, the workers came by right at that moment. One of them, a man named Marcus Doiley, decided that he couldn’t just leave Finn dancing alone. To the delight of the dancing four-year-old, Marcus decided to join in too.


Let the dance-off begin

Finn kept bouncing back and forth on his feet and clapping as he watched Marcus bust out his own energetic moves as well. Marcus really got into it. That sanitation worker knows how to dance! His energy was contagious and just filled Finn with so much joy that it kept the dance-off going.


Bringing happiness to everyone

Finn’s mom managed to catch the end of the dance-off on video, and we’re so glad that she had the opportunity to. We’re not alone in our love of what the video captured. More than eight hundred people have already liked (or loved) it on Facebook, and we guarantee that you will be the next person to add to that growing number.

The internet responds

Even the comments are great. The entire community, both locally and on the internet, came together to share their thoughts and positive experiences.

Another person from the area also mentioned how fantastic the sanitation workers there are. Beth Fulner Shoemaker said:

“My granddaughter loves the waste management guys. She waves at the window to them. She is only 1 1/2”


And another parent shared their experience with sanitation workers and their child. They even included a picture with their post!

That is one of the most adorable outfits we have seen! It even matches the color of the truck!

And of course, there was a little jealously among the comments, but we’ll forgive them. It would be hard not to be jealous of an area with dancing sanitation workers.

“How cute!! I’m envious- you still have a sanitation department!! We have private companies. Not good.”

We hope Pamela’s luck improves. No one should have to miss out on this kind of a highlight of the day.


Dancing the day away in style

The entire thing is too cute to miss.
