Baseball. Football. Cricket. Trench warfare. All of those things are occasions where being able to lob something at a target from a long distance is a good skill to have. But using that good arm to chuck Fedex deliveries onto a customer’s porch from 20 feet away will not garner praise, especially when you’re (allegedly) caught on camera doing just that.
A customer in Maryland who has a home security system that records video and emails the homeowner snapshots when the motion sensors are set off reportedly caught the delivery guy chucking a box onto the concrete porch from quite a distance.
MyFoxDC.com has the footage of the driver standing at a distance from the porch and launching the package on its quick flight. While its contents weren’t breakable — the package contained clothing for a doll — that’s not the real issue here, the customer says.
“There was nothing breakable in the package,” she said. “That wasn’t my point. He had no idea what was in the package … it could have been something breakable. It was just the way that it was delivered to us, the carelessness that he took in delivering the package to our family.”
After the homeowners complained to FedEx, the driver in question was fired as a company spokeswoman says managers are “shocked” that the employee chose to deliver packages in such a manner, because that’s not actually how they’re supposed to do things.
