If you made a joke to a young child that she was the milkman's daughter, her response would probably be something along the lines of, "What's a milkman?"
A milkman, like so many other occupations, is what some might call a job of yesteryear. With the advancement of technology -- computers, phones, automated systems -- the need for people to perform certain jobs is dying. It seems there is always someone or something that can do the job better, faster, cheaper.
