Australian posties have been copping flak for a while now for seemingly not trying hard enough to deliver packages.
While there are millions of things that arrive on time and are all good in the hood, there are plenty of examples where they'll leave a 'Sorry We Missed You' card even though the recipient was at home at the time.
People angry that they haven't received their package are quick to post a photo with a disgruntled message onto social media. But one woman has shared a rather peculiar image of her experience with Australia Post.
Merryl Lloyd uploaded a picture to Facebook showing her parcel had been chucked onto the roof of her property and the postie left a pretty hilarious note.
"I accidentally threw your parcel on top of the roof, my apologies," the delivery note read.
"Maybe use a broom to get it down."
Two scenarios are likely at play here: either the delivery person was trying to toss the package from a fair distance and vastly overestimated their strength or they were simply fed up with something at that point in time and took it out on poor Merryl's parcel.
It was probably the former but it would have been hilarious if the moment was caught on CCTV.
Speaking with 7news.com.au, Merryl said: "We got home from shopping and the little card was sitting in the screen door. The message said that the parcel was on the roof.
"We both looked at each other, then we stepped back and looked up and just burst out laughing.
"I'm five foot one, how am I supposed to get that down?"
Merryl took the postie's suggestion and brought out her trusty mop to do the job and thankfully everything was a-okay after that.
This isn't the first time an Australia Post delivery went viral, with one person uploading her experience to Reddit.
The person in question posted a screenshot of a message they received as they waited for a delivery.
The message asked them whether they wanted the delivery driver to drop off the package at home or to the nearest Post Office. The time stamp shows they replied within one minute asking for it to be taken to their place.
Sadly though, waiting 60 seconds to reply has been their downfall because Australia Post said it took too long.
"Sorry, your reply received too late. The driver has already been to your home," was the reply.
