UPS package jams door handle and traps man inside his own apartment in UPS delivery fail - TomoNews

DUBLIN, CALIFORNIA — A delivery man should leave your package either right in your hands or in a safe spot, and not trap you in your own apartment. A UPS delivery person unintentionally made a California man a prisoner inside his own apartment over the weekend when a package actually boxed him in. After discovering that he was unable to turn his door handle from the inside, Jessie Lawrence called his apartment's maintenance guy to help free him from this conundrum, SFGate reported. Lawrence then realised that his door handle had been jammed by a package delivered by a UPS guy who left it inconveniently right under the outside door handle, rendering it unable to turn. Lawrence later recreated the set up and tweeted a photo of it to UPS. Thanks to the power of Twitter, the tweet was quickly shared tens of thousands of times. Though the post has since been deleted, there are still plenty of screenshots floating around the Interwebs. The tweet has also set off a series of responses of people sharing their own bizarre delivery experiences. Some debated whether the image was fake, theorizing the door could have still been opened even with the package stuck under the handle, as the door opens inward. While others were simply curious about what is inside the large box. UPS Customer Support soon offered up a typo-filled apology to Lawrence via their Twitter account. ----------------------------------------­--------------------- Go to https://www.patreon.com/tomonews and become a Patron now TomoNews is now on Patreon and we've got some cool perks for our hardcore fans.

Shitty UPS workers are just a byproduct of how shitty UPS treats them. They can get fired for taking a bathroom break. Most piss in bottles or in the truck itself. How do I know this? My father is head of health and safety and oversees damaged or mislabeled packages. He makes them hose down those trucks every time they return. Despite the shitty work conditions, UPS does offer damn good benefits (they need it).
