Receiving an Amazon delivery is probably something we’ve all experienced in our lives at one point or another. But this particular Amazon delivery came with an extra package no one wants to receive. With the holiday season coming into full swing, Amazon will turn to contracted delivery services to get their orders to customers.
While the vast majority of these contractors most likely do their jobs well, on occasion you get a bad apple. Such was the case for one Amazon delivery in Sacramento California. A contracted Amazon delivery driver is shown delivering a package to a home and then defecating at the end of the driveway. Check out the video below provided by ABC10 News.
That’s not at all the sort of package anyone wants to find on their curb. To its credit, Amazon has taken responsibility for the incident. Amazon has also said the driver no longer makes deliveries for Amazon. The company even took it a step further and contacted the customer, providing him with an Amazon gift card as compensation. Amazon did make a statement on the matter:
This does not reflect the high standards we have for delivery service providers.
With the holiday rush, I’m sure drivers are under pressure to deliver packages on time. It’s a fact of life that nature calls, but even if you’re running late on deliveries, this was a pretty bad judgment call. This is also a great reminder to delivery drivers that more people are using home security cameras, so it behooves them to be on their best behavior. That being said, I don’t think this will be the last incident we’ll see from a delivery driver this holiday season.
