Amazon Delivery Driver Caught On Camera Kicking Package To Door
| Last updated
Ever been frustrated when a parcel is late, goes to the wrong house, or just doesn't arrive at all? Well, the alternative is that it might be booted all the way to you by the courier - an Amazon delivery driver has been caught on camera kicking a package up to someone's front door.
The careless handler was spotted on a home security system, which caught the woman giving the small box a good hiding, before dropping another large package on top of it.
Despite the blood-boiling rage this must have caused the intended recipient, the Amazon employee does at least show some nifty footwork, switching the box between her left and right feet, across the front lawn and then up the path.
Seemingly happy with her work, she then taps away on her pad, probably ticking the box that says 'arrived safely' and definitely not mentioning that she'd just kicked seven shades out of it.
She then trundles back to her wagon to carry on her merry way, probably delivering smashed up packages to the rest of her customers.
A shoe in for employee of the month, no doubt.
Since the video was posted on Youtube by Minh Truong, it has been viewed more than 11,000 times.
The company said they will contact the customer regarding the incident.
A spokesperson said: "We have very high standards for our delivery service providers and expect every package to be handled with care.
"We've notified the right teams internally and will work with the customer directly on matters related to their package delivery."
Home security system 1, delivery driver 0.
But this isn't the first time employees have been spotted treating people's belongings in a less than respectable fashion.
Earlier this month baggage handlers at Manchester Airport were videoed by a passenger, throwing their luggage from the plane's conveyor belt onto the trolley.
Elizabeth Evans, 28, from Bury, filmed the handler throwing suitcases - including her own pink case - after landing on the flight from Malaga.
She told press she was 'angry and shocked' by the behaviour of airport staff and that her case had been damaged.
In a statement from Swissport, the airport's handling firm, they said they were 'disappointed by the footage' and said it wouldn't happen again.
It said: "We can confirm we are investigating and will take all steps necessary to ensure this does not happen again."
A Manchester Airport spokesperson said it was 'unacceptable' from the employee and has been 'raised with them directly'.
But before you go away thinking all delivery drivers and baggage handlers are the worst kinds of people, they're not all that bad.
Take Ephraim Sibeko, a luggage handler in South Africa, for example.
He might possibly be one of the nicest people around after a video was released showing him taking extreme care with people's stuff as it comes on to the revolving baggage carousel, at Lanseria Airport in Johannesburg.
But just in case, maybe keep your valuables in a bit of bubble wrap before going on your next holiday.
