Woman calls out postal worker over ‘unacceptable’ behavior: ‘Worst delivery ever’

Dillon Thompson

An Australian woman is drawing a wave of mixed reactions after sharing how a postal worker treated her package — and how they tried to make up for the mistake.

Merryl Lloyd, who lives in Sydney, came home one day to find a note from the Australia Post — the country’s national postal service — sitting on her porch. The message, which Lloyd shared on Facebook, contained an apologetic-but-troublesome admission.

“I accidentally threw your parcel on top of the roof, my apologies,” the note read, according to Australia’s 7 News. “Maybe use a broom to get it down.”

Sure enough, Lloyd looked up to find a small package sitting on her roof. At a height of only 5-foot-1, she was unsure how to retrieve her item.

Lloyd, who ultimately used a mop to get the package, told 7 News she thought mistake was hilarious. Other social media users, however, had more negative opinions.

The incident occurred last year, but has recently gone viral on Reddit after being shared to the site’s r/WellThatSucks forum. In that post, several users complained of the error, one user called the “worst delivery ever.”

“How the f*** do you accidentally do this?” one commenter wrote.

“Partial credit for leaving a note at least,” one added.

Others were far more lighthearted though, joking that the package was impervious to “porch pirates.” Some compared the postal worker’s mistake to a famous episode of the TV show, “Breaking Bad,” in which Walter White tosses a full pizza onto his roof.

Australia Post took the situation extremely seriously though. Last year, the postal service spoke out strongly against the driver’s “unacceptable” behavior, saying in a statement that it would take “disciplinary action” against the employee involved.
