FedEx delivery driver throws a computer monitor over fence. Customer had to return it because it broke.
But for what it’s worth, those Fedex delivery truck drivers earn a big paycheck and they should be more careful with fragile goods. As many folks that are looking for work, I’m sure this IDIOT could AND SHOULD be Fired On The Spot!
The FedEx delivery guy who lobbed a computer monitor over a customer’s fence has been disciplined, the company said Wednesday.
The delivery guy “did not display behaviour we consider to be reflective of customer service,” FedEx spokeswoman Shea Leordeanu said.
Whether the reprisal was a stern talking to or outright dismissal she wouldn’t say, nor would she describe the employee’s reaction when FedEx confronted him.
A 21-second video called “Fed Ex guy throwing my computer monitor” that was shot by the customer two days ago has hit 2.2 million views around the world on YouTube.
“The sad part is that I was home at the time with the front door wide open. All he would have had to do is ring the bell …” the customer, who posts on his YouTube channel goobie55, wrote.
The FedEx video shows a burly young man in shorts lifting a computer monitor from his truck, then walking up to a long, high black metal gate along a green and winding street. Then he dumps the package over the other side before walking nonchalantly away.
“We have identified a real situation,” said Leordeanu in answer to questions about whether it was staged.
FedEx, using its own tracking system, traced the customer and the rogue delivery guy quickly yesterday, she said.
“The situation has been resolved to the customer’s satisfaction. The customer has what they need and is happy,” she said.
Leordeanu did say the employee didn’t appear to have delivered anybody else’s package that way on Monday.
The video has sparked thousands of stories and dozens of reaction videos from customers who have had similar issues with package home delivery services.
This isn’t the first time a careless carrier has been caught on tape. YouTube yields up this gem from July with a UPS employee lobbing parcels into a truck “like he’s tossing garbage,” as an onlooker observes.
And in May, this driver caught this “FedEx fail” when a delivery person drove down the highway with a box attached to its grille.
Talk about being Lazy!
