A viral video shared by photographer Greg Riegler over this past weekend highlights the problem of carriers mishandling packages — in this case, a package containing a $1,500 Canon lens. The video was captured by a video doorbell security camera and recently detailed by Riegler on Reddit.
The video shows an individual claimed to be a delivery driver in training carrying the box across the lawn, only to throw it across what appears to be 10-15ft onto the porch and into the door. The entire process was pointless, as the video shows the trainee walking back to the unmarked van, only to return with a second individual wearing the FedEx logo. A slip was ultimately left at the door and the package was returned to the truck.
In a comment on Reddit, Reigler said:
This happened yesterday, 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 what not, but they shouldn’t be intentionally mishandled.
Riegler reports that an actual FedEx employee, not a contractor, delivered the package the next day and that the lens appeared to be unharmed upon inspection.
