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.
The incident occurred last year, but has
recently gone viral on Reddit after being shared
to the site’s r/WellThatSucks forum.
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
“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 the mistake was hilarious.
Other social media users, however,
had more negative opinions.
“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
