Going to the store at this time of year is an excruciatingly painful affair. We begin our Christmas shopping months early, and anything we need to get in December is bought online. Unfortunately for some, however, not everything they order online actually shows up.
As courier companies struggle to keep up with the surge in packages, it’s not uncommon for items to go missing, or for them to be delivered to the wrong address. But in some cases, shameless delivery drivers think it’s okay to reward themselves with items you’ve paid for during gift giving season. In the video below, a UPS driver is caught stealing an iPad that was left by FedEx just hours earlier.
The video was first uploaded to Vimeo and started making its way around the web when someone posted it on Reddit. It shows an iPad, which was supposed to be a Christmas present, being delivered by a FedEx driver, who does exactly what he’s supposed to do — takes the signature slip off the door, then leaves the package on the doorstep.
Hours later, a UPS driver arrives. He rings the door bell, realizes there’s no one home, then he, too, leaves a package before disappearing again. A short while later, the UPS driver comes back to collect the iPad he must have spotted earlier. Unfortunately for home, it was all caught on tape.
Interestingly, Apple doesn’t allow this to happen in the United Kingdom. In fact, it’s so strict with its delivery companies that it won’t allow them to change your delivery address once the parcel is on its way, and it won’t let them leave parcels with neighbors or in safe places. If you’re not home, the parcel goes back to the delivery depot until you rearrange its delivery.
