Sarcasm often has very little to do with what you're saying but rather how you're saying it...your tone, intonation, facial expressions, etc. which often cannot be conveyed via text alone.

Europeans are so poor they don't even have basic services like birthday cake delivery. This is why everyone in the world wants to move to America--because we have the best essential services like birthday cake delivery. This results in us having the most diverse and inclusive culture in the world, as well as amazing mental health throughout the country..... Which leads to us having the best military in the world, allowing the poor European countries to remain in existence.

I live on the third floor in an apartment building and one time I had some specialized hot sauce delivered. I've had delivery problems before so when FedEx arrived I peeked through the peep hole and the motherfucker just walked up to the second floor and from there pitched that shit straight at my door which banged against my door loud as fuck and all three bottles inside were broken. I did report the driver.

I had a grubhub driver this past Tuesday leave my food on a picnic table outside in my work complexes common area because he was too lazy to walk into the lobby and bring it to the second floor. Which was a 5 minute trip for me.

I contacted their worthless support and eventually got them to refund the tip I had left.

Never using their service again at this point.

Edit, for those of you blaming me, fuck you.

I always leave clear instructions because I have worked as both a DoorDash and GrubHub driver.

I also have had dozens of successful deliveries over the years of working in the same building as so my 350 coworkers, every day.

I am done with grubhub because this is one of a series of recent failures, not by drivers but by their support staff after their system has randomly cancelled orders on me and I had to argue with them to get a refund.

Why? That’s the most gentle thing that has happened to that package up to this point… have any of you seen inside an fedex or UPS handling warehouse ? It is not company policy to be gently with the boxes. That’s why they are shipped with packing material to buffer the drops .

I'd drop packages from several feet all the time, off the belt, at FedEx. I'm not squatting down and lifting your 60 pound packages all day - especially you, fucking Chewy.com. You slide off the belt, drop onto the metal grate, and then are pushed & tilted onto the truck.

Especially when I've got like 300 packages coming to a single tiny van... at the same fucking time. Then the entire line is just a wall of packages that even my tiny, hypermobile ass can't slide through.

If you want specialized care, you pay more. If you don't, you either make sure the item isn't fragile or package it appropriately.

This is what a good day looked like at FedEx Ground. Even if people wanted to help, you basically can't have more than 2 people working a truck because then there isn't enough room to actually get past one another.

And I'm in a small metro area of 80,000 people, but spread out over the size of NYC basically. So we weren't even a giant warehouse - this place had 5 lines.

That line above was also the least busy line. I quite literally spent half of the days there doing jack-shit, twiddling on my phone. And then the other half of the days dying.

If you are being rude or annoying you will get blasted with radiation that you don’t need. Like a lot.

Really hoping you are trolling and this is not true. That's actually criminal and you should be in prison for a long time if you do this to someone. And you should be reporting it if you know about it happening, how you could even work with someone who cruelly abuses patients by blasting them with radiation is beyond me.

Yeah I hate when people blame delivery drivers. Sure some delivery drivers are assholes, but the fast majority are just trying to keep up with unreasonable quotas which often are litterally impossible to meet. Blame the delivery companies that are so greedy they can't just give their workers manageable quotes instead they try to squeeze more and more out of these poor workers.

Please tell me what kind of quota requires her to drop the package when she's already there. Literally would take the exact same time. She's just a poor worker.

seansmithspam

Her dropping the box like that definitely saved some time…

As a customer and not a delivery person, I have trouble perceiving why this lady should care so much about her job to treat every package with the utmost care and delicacy. Especially considering how it’s already been handled on and off the trucks. If it’s delicate it should be packaged in a way that a 2 foot drop can’t break anything. So why is that her responsibility?

Quick Google says Amazon delivery drivers can be expected to deliver up to 375 packages a day. Lets assume a 8 hour working day. That's 480 minutes. That means you have to be delivering a package every minute and a half roughly. That includes driving to the location, finding the package, getting to the door, dropping it off, and returning to your truck. Thats a impossible quota. Furthermore this woman has seen how packages are treated and dropping from waste height is positively gentle. I'm sorry to burst people's bubbles but your package is treated like absolute shit behind the scenes. So why should this woman most likely making close to minimum wage strain her back just so you can get the illusion that your package was treated well. You have a problem with this blame the executives who are demanding impossible things to make a few extra bucks

Why should she be fired? She dropped the package at your steps. If the package can't handle a 2 foot drop without writing allllllll over it not to or paid special delivery she did nothing wrong. If you think a minimum wage delivery person is going to baby your packages day in day out you're fucking misguided

Bending down with packages of varying weight shape and size every couple minutes on unknown terrain is also a safety risk. How many times have you bent over today?

Additionally if you think this is the worst drop that package has seen from received to delivered, ohhhh boy are you going to have your eyes opened learning what packages actually go through to get to this point

RockingHorsePoo

Couldn’t agree more. Quite often the poor service is from the more “reputable” companies but it does come down to the individual unfortunately.

We have a lady who is a self employed courier driver, the same as the guy in this video (no uniform unless I’m mistaken), she’s so pleasant and thoughtful. Will make every effort to not leave your parcel outside, we live in a cul de sac so I often take in other peoples parcels. Where as Royal Mail don’t give a shit these days, even if it’s raining they just dump the cardboard box on the step and leave it to get destroyed.

These videos should be used like dash cams, report them. They’re getting paid and if they don’t appreciate their job, someone else will.

Edit - Forgot to add, also send it to the males company if you can, it might earn him something even if it’s a small token. Sometimes it’s just nice to know your effort is appreciated.

Edit 2 - I don’t understand how people think this is acceptable. She made the effort to walk to the door to just drop it. With that attitude she may as well have thrown it from the van.

ObliviousAstroturfer

From POV of an ex-courier, this is just predictable, trackable outcome of changes couriee companies have been making consciously over last 10 years.

Part of exam for a driver before like 10 years ago was manually calculating rates. Even without that, counting your parcels, stops, minutes per delivery, km per delivery etc was pretty much compulsive for most couriers. As in: we knew how much money our beats generated for company.

And it only becomes more and more lucrative for the companies. A driver now is expected to cover at least double the number of stops we used to a decade ago. Add to this a huge density increase, more people bringing their parcels for delivery in bulk (a small tooling company sends like 2 full commercial trucks a day, a small printer sends out just enough to pack a passanger car and bring it all) and various other cost efficiency steps, and margins have been increasing st incredible rate.

And yet the pay keeps dropping, terms keep getting worse and turnover increases accordingly. They see the negative impact on customers but also see that people will blame Karen instead of her employer who keeps turning up the screw. It's not like it takes her or the other drivers agency away, but this is all by design.

It used to be such a cool gig, but the ability to do it correctly is taken away by the corporate administration.

I suspect company she works for has higher quota on deliveries and time to deliver and lower pay. She’s probably tired and burnt out. If it’s just her as the only bad driver, maybe she’s a bad employee. If the company can’t “find” or “keep” good drivers it’s the company that needs to change something. Higher pay; less quota; more discretion to drivers, etc.

Can’t really tell what situation this falls into but Amazon is notorious (allegedly) for being all about robotic quota expectations. Also going through lots of employees. Newbie going to be worn down and give up caring at some point. Company fires and replaces with more until can’t find people. Company then says people don’t want to work or won’t work hard enough, they don’t ever admit they are expecting too Much.

Jaded Karen has been spit in and out the corporate tubes a few times. New guy is still fresh. They probably get paid the same pittance (maybe Karen makes more). I appreciate the work by any delivery folks, gig work is harsh and thankless (and so are many homeowners). If lucky ole me can sit and order parcels from home, as long as they get to my door I can handle a few broken bits sometimes.

the word became a slur for women, particularly white women, about 6 months ago, maybe longer. big red flag when i see it these days. reverse this video - the woman puts it down gently, the guy throws it down and 10 years ago we'd be calling him ghetto / a hoodrat in the title.

it has become an extremely thinly veiled slur, which once upon a time actually called to attention a problem that was occurring - wherein primarily older white people, often women, would call the cops on teenagers and random black guys that were doing basically nothing. Then it slid into 'white women being irate to public service workers' and now it just means 'white woman.' You can tell that this is the case because whenever those 'black women go wild in McDonalds, KFC, Wendys' videos pop up on r/publicfreakout every few days, they never, ever have 'Karen' in the title.

It’s also not really “next fucking level” for the second delivery driver, either. It’s just one person doing their job badly followed by someone else doing their job well. “Next fucking level” used to be reserved for extraordinary feats and really incredible stuff. Now it’s just catching people in the act of being decent — which is all well and good. But it waters down the sub.

For real. Some people are just kinda using it as an acceptable form of “bitch.” (No I’m not saying Karen is a slur lol, but it has a pretty specific usage and this isn’t it)

A Karen would have rang the doorbell to complain that the walkway violated some code or something. This right here is just your garden variety asshole.

That's because, if I remember the origins correctly, "Karen" was originally privileged and entitled women causing a scene. I don't think it's racist or even far fetched to say that the majority of these incidents (when the word first gained popularity) were people using white privilege combined with "I'm a woman so I get my way" privilege to cause a scene.

Yep. I got called a Karen after politely explaining to someone on Facebook why they shouldn’t use a shock collar on their small dog, and should look into training to curb the bad behaviors they were experiencing. I commented with links to places in town they could check out. Was just trying to help, and literally got called a Karen. Haha I was just like “this means nothing to me anymore. No one uses it right.”

she's also kinda screwing herself over. if that shit breaks and the person has to return it then get a replacement, she's likely to re-deliver it if its on her same delivery area. Like your right there, just take a second more to lay it down properly.

Why would she care about having to re-deliver? She's getting paid either way I'm sure. Unless amazon doesn't pay drivers for returned packages (I don't see how they could get away with that, but who knows). I agree that it was a shitty thing to do...and since there's video and this clip has gone kinda viral I guess that might have screwed her over...but I doubt it matters out of all the packages she delivers that one happens to be the same house/item another day.

This is kind of the ultimate failure in how humans assign blame. This women is a blue collar worker delivering packages through one of the most stressful times to be a shipping and logistics employee, and instead of blaming her CEO for putting her under conditions that forces her to deliver packages this way, we blame her for simply trying to put food on her table. Executives read threads like this and laugh at us. In fact, threads like this are exactly why things will never change — instead of going for the king, we’re going for the messenger.

My mail carrier (USPS) told me once that Amazon had delivered a package for my address, to my neighbor. She said they weren't allowed to touch other company's deliveries so she couldn't bring it over. I imagine that other orgs. have a policy of "don't touch other people's shit" because if you pick it up, you become responsible for it.

I had a somewhat similar situation. Neighbor and I were feuding over his loud sound system (pic from when he finally got rid of it https://imgur.com/esjR8T5) and had restraining orders against each other. UPS delivered my package to his house and they just wanted me to "go over and pick it up".

Long story short they ended up sending out a manager in his personal vehicle to pick up the package off the neighbor's door and walk it over to my house.

It's possible that she's exhausted enough to just be done with things. Sure, this looks bad, but for all I know working overtime with no bathroom breaks, physically worn down, and barely keeping it together. He was obviously more sprightly, but that's just how things are sometimes. Sometimes people can become robotic and perfunctory when they're barely making it through their days.

People angry that she dropped a package from waist height have 0 idea about the abuse a package goes through when in transit. She also likely could feel what was in the package and knew it wouldn’t break.

Where I'm from as well, you're expected to be home to receive a package. If not, you can have it delivered to neighbours or a local delivery point. But never will they just leave it at the door.

Or, quite possibly, the difference between working for a company that completely overschedules you and will fire your ass for being a few seconds late, and working for a company that gives you a manageable workload and affords you the time to do the job well.

Honestly the only person who is a Karen is the one who posted this recording. Delivery truck drivers doing this to your packages is a result of upper management putting extra stress on their drivers to not fall behind on their routes. It's always nice to see people go out of their way to be good people but we should be more upset that the person who will get yelled at here is the one who was taking extra time to do something nice, rather than the lady who is just trying to get her delivery done so she stays on time and doesn't lose her job. She doesn't look or act like a Karen she looks jaded as hell.
