Finding that a package has been damaged during transport is one of the most infuriating things that can occur to most people. If you paid good money for something, you want to know that it’s going to arrive in pristine condition. Just look at this – not only is the package bent, but it looks like the mailbox has taken a hit, too.
Even worse is what is purportedly inside the package – a vinyl music disc! There goes listening to the latest Barry White or whatever, because as far as we can tell there’s no way that disc survived
Oh Good, My Step Ladder Got Delivered
Sometimes there aren't just any good places to put a package, so the FedEx guy or gal has to get a little creative. Sure, you could hide it in a bush like some people, but this example is one that probably took a little bit of work. Sure, you could just put it on the welcome mat like all the other delivery drivers, but why not take the chance to be a little extra?
There are lots of neighborhoods that have rashes of thefts off of front porches, so no doubt certain drivers have figured out that hiding the packages is the best way to do it.
Just Tell the Whole World
We're all adults here mostly, and we all know that sometimes you have to get something a little...well, a little something delivered. You know the stuff. Stuff like what this package claims to be. Thanks to the person that allowed his or her shame to be broadcast to the entire world. We're all having a nice laugh.
Here's the strangest thing – what OTHER packages have the contents described on the outside? The best you can usually get is what shop it was sent from. Why would this be done? We smell some shenanigans on this one, but the scent isn't strong enough to make a stink.
Like It's Not Even There
A lot of delivery drivers take a little bit of extra time to make sure a package is hidden and secure before they drive off. It looks like this driver had the same kind of thought, but didn't exactly think it through all the way. The box is, from a very technical standpoint, obscured – however, anybody who is looking to nab some packages won't really have an issue with this kind of camouflage.
Still, maybe there just wasn't any other way to obscure it from sight – at least there was a token attempt at hiding it.
If you get something larger delivered, then a lot of the normal plans for delivery go right out the window. You can't hide something under a doormat if it's one foot by one foot by four feet, which looks to be the size of the package in this image.
We think that the message “please put under doormat” is a regular delivery instruction that this house gives to all online vendors, but for a hefty delivery like this one, that sort of option isn't really going to fly. Still, points to the delivery driver for following the instructions in the letter.
