    Package explodes in Tennessee

    Wonder if there be any increased security or procedures implemented after this?

    Prayers go out to the family.

    Yes, it didn't say who delivered it, but that could of blown when in a jam on the belt, or fell of shelf in car, or any number of places in our system.

    Can anyone find the story. Customers ask all the time "is it a bomb ". I say " be sure to open it after I leave ".

    Man, that's crazy. Glad it didn't injure any UPSers in its travels.

    When people ask, "Is it's ticking?", I say with a stern face, "packages bombs don't tick!"
