Package Delivery Mishap Is Hilarious

Benjamin Ward of East Sussex, UK, expected a shipment of clothing through the package delivery service myHermes. A driver dutifully placed the package at Ward's house. Or on it.

About 20 feet into the air, on the roof of the house.

The delivery driver's note said simply "Stuck on roof--sorry!"

Ward was displeased and expressed his opinion of myHermes's customer service on Twitter. His tweet promptly went everywhere, making the failed package delivery a public relations fiasco.

The social media management of myHermes, to its credit, seemed to realize that this was a serious problem and leapt into action.

Sometimes myHermes's requests were not always reasonable. But the delivery driver did show up that day and, after borrowing a rake from Ward, remove the package from the roof.

It seems that everyone is tiptoeing around the question of how it got there, but it is obvious to anyone following the story that the driver just flung it there from the truck. Did he even slow down? At least he bothered to look where it landed. The next question is whether this is standard operating procedure for the company.
