USPS mail carrier caught throwing package in Kansas

DERBY, Kan. (KAKE) -Derby resident, Josh Gray, was not happy when he recently checked his home surveillance cameras. He caught something he wasn’t expecting.

“Basically, walked up to the steps and threw it onto the porch,” Gray said.

You can see on this video a U.S. Postal Service mail carrier tossing Gray’s package onto the porch and walking away.

“To me it just seemed like laziness.” “It’s not snowy. It’s not icy like it has been over the winter. My steps are perfectly fine. You can see them. Not slippery,” Gray said.

You don’t have to go far to see other examples.

    To protect your packages from damage, be proactive and prevent mishaps before sending your items.

    All shippers should prepare items they are sending to survive a 5′ drop or a 20′ toss because this happens multiple times at all delivery and transport companies. Shipping containers and pallets stacked 6′ high with heavy parcels could easily crush a poorly packaged item. If it can break …
    • DON’T use paper as a packing material.
    • Wrap with enough bubble wrap to protect it from dropping.
    • Surround the bubble wrapped item with impact absorbing material such as styrofoam packing peanuts or more bubble wrap.
    • The items should not directly touch the inside of the shipping box or container in case something impacts or punctures the box.
    • Pack contents tightly, don’t leave room for items to shift inside the packaging.

    Shipping containers may be outside in all weather conditions during the transport process. If it needs to stay dry …
    • Seal item inside plastic wrap or zip-lock bag.
    • Envelopes made of Tyvek are lightweight, strong and great for clothing and things that won’t break.
    • Use clear tape to cover the address label so it won’t smudge or ruin water based ink.

    Verify the address is correct on the mailing label…
    • Use the USPS website to verify a mailing address is deliverable.
    • Sorting machines using optical lasers to “read” your address will sort your item.
    • Use computer printed labels or hand print LEDGIBLY. Decorative or illegible address text may confuse the sorting software and send your package to the wrong address.
    • Use dark colored ink, not pencil. Optical laser readers cannot detect red ink.
    • Include a note inside all packages with both the mailing address and return address in case the shipping label is lost or damage beyond recognition.

    LOL! That is standard procedure! Packages are dropped by machines or tossed up to 20′ during the sortation process! Do these people really think a package is gently placed overtime it touches human hands??? If that were the case the package delivery network would come to a grinding halt! This goes for UPS,USPS and Fedex!
