Thomas Gent received the email notification to tell him that his Hermes parcel had arrived whilst he was out, but when he opened it he was greeted by a picture of the driver sat in his slippers with his feet up at home in front of the telly.
So, it seems as if this is all just a genuine mistake, but you'd still have to wonder what was going on, wouldn't you?
Gent, a 30-year-old from Preston, had ordered some craft materials to his house and received an email telling him that the delivery had been attempted, but the 'proof' he received showed the driver at home chilling out with a box of Quality Street.
Naturally, he was a bit put out.
He shared the photo on Facebook on Thursday, writing: "How's this for a delivery attempt.
"Sat on his a**e at home".
The Hermes email read: "Your local courier tried to deliver your Hermes parcel today but you weren't in. We tried to deliver your parcel today but you weren't in.
"There wasn't a safe place to leave your parcel so we'll try again and contact you on Fri Sep 17 2021 with more information."
Naturally, dozens of people commented with their own thoughts on the matter.
Because we've all had run-ins with delivery services over the past few years, haven't we?
One wrote: "Blimey! Bold as brass!"
Another said: "At least it's not your front room whilst you were out".
For his part, Thomas said: "It made me laugh because it's about standard for Hermes.
"It's hilarious the driver has the nerve to actually sit at home and take a picture of it too.
"I was in all day, there was no delivery attempt, no card left or anything.
"It was delivered on the Friday, however, it was left at the door, nobody knocked and it was just left there.
"I was angry as I did need the delivery ASAP, however you have to find these things funny so I saw the funny side."
However, it seems as if it might have been a genuine mistake, as Hermes later released a statement that reads: "This photo was uploaded in error as a result of a technical issue.
"We apologise for any confusion caused. We can confirm that this parcel has been successfully delivered."
