An Amazon customer ended up having to scale the roof of their house to retrieve their parcel following a hilarious mishap with a delivery driver.
In footage captured by the recipient of the parcel, Casey McPerry, which has since been shared on TikTok, the driver can be seen on the doorbell camera approaching the front door when he gets distracted by a bug.
The driver, who is carrying several packages in one hand, attempts to swat the insect but in doing so manages to lose one of the parcels which flings over his head and lands on McPerry’s roof.
The driver then stares in disbelief at what had just happened to him and looks on hopelessly as he attempts to find a solution.
Eventually, he decides to message McPerry to see if he can help get the package off the roof.
“Hi, this is your Amazon delivery driver. This sounds crazy but I accidentally threw a package on your roof,” wrote the driver. “Do you have a ladder I can use?”
Sure enough, McPerry did have a ladder but clearly didn’t see the message until he got home later that day and had to climb a wall and use a torch to spot the package.
“Don’t worry about it dude, it’s all good,” McPerry said in response. “I’ll get it down in the morning.”
Sure enough, McPerry kept his word and got a ladder out and got the package down, which was a far way back on the roof but looked to be undamaged.
“Poor guy, don’t worry about it. Seriously, it’s ok. This made our day,” wrote in the caption to the first video, which has now gone viral after it was shared on another TikTok account where it has racked up more than six million views.
McPerry has also added that he hopes to find the Amazon driver and “share how much laughter this brought us.”
Many have rightly found the video to be hilarious with some Amazon workers thanking McPerry for being cool about the accident. One person wrote: “Thanks for being cool about it! We get so many people that would have thrown an absolute fit over this lol.”
Even Amazon themselves couldn’t get enough of it and wanted to use the video themselves – but Casey said he’ll only oblige if he and his wife can go on Jeff Bezos’ next rocket launch.
However, there is only one thing at fault here and that’s the bug that the driver was trying to swat. Still, it did manage to create a great bit of viral content so we shouldn’t be too mad.
