Perhaps This FedEx Delivery Man Is Preparing For A Monitor-Throwing Contest

A soft touch should be a job requirement for package delivery personnel, because recently it seems like we’re seeing way too many lobbed and otherwise mistreated boxes. In this new video, a surveillance camera catches a FedEx delivery guy chucking a computer monitor over a fence.

YouTube user goobie55 describes the event thusly: “Here is a video of my monitor being ‘delivered.’ The sad part is that I was home at the time with the front door wide open. All he would have had to do was ring the bell on the gate. Now I have to return my monitor since it is broken.”

Even with the chance of being caught on camera, it’s sad to see delivery folk opting to throw, toss or otherwise loft boxes into the air, to the detriment of the customer. Just abit earlier today, we had another example of airborne delivery, with a FedEx package ending up on a balcony.

While we’re on topic, let’s take a walk down memory lane with another instance of a delivery dude, this time for UPS, being caught on camera chucking a box.

Watch below as FedEx man doesn’t hesitate for a moment in hoisting the monitor over the fence. In fact, he starts his approach to the throw a few steps before he reaches the point of launch.
