A TWO-YEAR-OLD’S parents are discouraging him from thinking of binmen, postmen or men driving diggers as role models.
Joseph Turner, aged two-and-a-half, is being kept away from the windows when the bin lorry comes by just in case he gets ideas.
Mother Francesca said: “George, the boy he knows from junior yoga, wants to be a train driver. A train driver. Well I think we can do a bit better than that.
“Right now Joseph is too young to realise that the man in the big red crane has neck tattoos, no property portfolio and doesn’t send his children to a fee-paying school.
“There was a phase when he wanted to be an astronaut, but we put a stop to that. Did you know Tim Peake only went to the University of Portsmouth?”
Meanwhile, the toddler is encouraged to go to the window and wave when neighbour Stephen Malley, CEO of a tech start-up with share options totalling £3 million, walks past with his briefcase.
