A delivery driver working for FedEx has been caught on a doorbell camera hurling a package at the porch. The parcel contained a $1,500 Canon lens, and was thrown as opposed to walking a few feet extra in order to place it carefully.
Photographer Greg Riegler, who is based in Florida, was horrified when reviewing the footage back, only to find out what had happened. In the three-minute clip, the driver is seen arriving at the property and walking toward the front door, before carelessly throwing the package which hits the doorstep with a bang. He then returns to the van, before coming back to the house with a colleague who reveals he works for FedEx. As nobody answered the door, they pick the package back up and take it with them.
Riegler posted about the incident online, writing on Reddit:
I’ve been in contact with FedEx and the local distribution center. It’s a contractor, and the guy tossing the box seems to be training, which is crazy he already doesn’t care about his job. I know packages are supposed to be packed in a way they can handle drops and whatnot, but they shouldn’t be intentionally mishandled. Thankfully no damage to the screen door.
He revealed he received the lens the next day, and so far there’s no apparent damage.
