One UPS driver has reportedly been fired for his disturbing actions that were caught on camera. According to Fox News, the unnamed seasonal driver was delivering a package to a home with surveillance cameras. The footage reveals his stop was quite unconventional. The two-minute clip shows the UPS driver carelessly throwing the package over the gate. However, that’s not all he did. Instead of just delivering the package and leaving, he also took time to urinate on the customer’s house before making his exit.
When homeowner Ben Lucas returned later that day, he retrieved and opened the parcel only to find that it was broken. The package, which included.22 caliber ammunition, chemicals, and a gun-cleaning machine, was reportedly worth hundreds of dollars. The extensive damages to the package is what prompted Lucas to check the surveillance. That’s when he saw the series of events that took place when the UPS driver arrived at his home. Needless to say, Lucas was outraged by what he saw. He recently spoke with Click 2 Houston about the shocking ordeal. He recounted the incident and verbally expressed his frustrations and disapproval of the UPS driver’s actions.
“When it happened, I was like ‘wait, what’s going on?… So basically I paid someone to come to my house and pee on it.”
Lucas stated that he contacted UPS to file a complaint, but the company initially did very little to rectify the situation. He also revealed that the UPS official he spoke was more concerned about the broken parcel than the UPS driver’s poor display of professionalism.
He explained how UPS officials had no desire to even view the footage and made no effort to address the driver’s actions aside from the broken parcel. So, since the company refused to take initiative and address the situation, Lucas decided to take action himself. He posted the video to social media. The disturbing video immediately caught the attention of thousands, and has gone viral. This prompted a swift response from UPS officials.
“UPS was dismayed by actions that violated decency and delivery care. The local management team did take action to terminate the individual who was a seasonal delivery helper. However, they were wrong if they did not clarify this resolution with Mr. Lucas at the time. UPS sincerely apologizes to our customer. No behavior like this is acceptable.”
