Does the postman ever saddle you with parcels for your neighbours when they're out? Leaves you burning with curiosity as to what they could contain, doesn't it? Well, imagine going downstairs to find that one such parcel had been ripped to shreds by your dog - and what had popped out was a big pink dildo.
This is what happened to Lee Edwards, 36, and his partner Jenna Crozier, 34, who took the parcel in for another resident on their road and thought it was safe tucked behind the door. Oh, how wrong they were.
The pair were left stunned when they discovered their black Labrador pup, Bonnie, had ripped the parcel open and was now playing with a six-inch sex toy.
A mortified Jenna put the offending item in a bag and it was collected by the red-faced neighbour later that day.
Ironically Lee works as a dog trainer - we're presuming that 'leave-the-parcels-alone' lesson was still on the agenda. He said: "I came downstairs and at first I thought it was a training toy. I train dogs for a living and we do have toys that are similar.
"Then I thought it might have been Jenna's and was thinking, 'Why has she bought that?' It was just lying there on the floor... then I saw what had happened to the box.
"I didn't want to touch it and didn't want the neighbour to think I'd touched it so I cordoned it off like a crime scene. It's embarrassing but you can see the funny side of it."
Wait, there's another side to this scenario other than the one marked 'funny'?!
Dad-of-two Lee, who has two dogs - seven-month-old Bonnie and her Labrador mum Bojangles - filmed the pooch lying next to the toy, wagging her tail and surrounded by pieces of ripped-up cardboard.
The hilarious video has been viewed thousands of times on social media - and we can definitely see why.
Dog groomer Jenna added: "The postman delivered it here and I'd hidden it behind the door and thought nothing of it. When I saw what it was, I thought it was so funny - of all the parcels she could have got hold of, it had to be the most secret thing you could have.
"Bonnie had it in her gob and was walking around with it. She played with it for about an hour. It was a pink Ann Summers toy - it wasn't a huge one, just a standard size.
"She's chewed it up. It's chewable and rubber like a toy. She looked so proud of herself. She came over like, 'Are you going to throw it for me?' We call her demolition dog."
Jenna said she put the toy back in what was left of the box and placed it in a bag, adding: "The neighbour ended up coming round, I don't know her but I'd say she's in her late forties.
"I apologised and told her the dog had got hold of it. She gave us a look. She knew what it was and then she ran off to her car.
"I've not seen her since. I don't want to, I feel awful."
Lee added: "I have put a big sign on the door now saying we won't accept parcels anymore because this is what will happen with our dog."
Oh wow, what a doggo to be proud of.
