    i dont know if they will let this one stay but here goes I was making a delivery to a guy and he was kind of a jerk. when i got up to his house he was standing outside and asked me "whats in the package?" I told him i had no idea so he grabed it out of my hands and opened it right in front of me. well it was a big black women's device, then he looked shocked and told me his son ordered it hahahahaha

    I had a similar experience.

    I was delivering a respectable small office. I always took the packages to the owner's wife.
    One day I had the cap break off of the end of a tube and a item rolled onto the desk. That customer has not spoken to me since.

    having said "Thank You Sir" only to find out "Lee" was a woman.....

    Oh come on!

    The other week I walked around for at least an hour with my fly on my pants wide open. The worst part was was that nobody said anything.

    Well if its any consolation, I would never tell ya either. If a guy tells you he would be accused of being gay, and if a female tells ya, they are just................ well you know. So we just figure next time you go pee, you will know! And I can say when I have forgotten to button the 3rd button on my shirt, no one has told me, and customers, the males were much nicer on that day, the women just dont notice......................

    It was 90 plus, and I really was not feeling the best when the day had started. Around 3 I pulled into a cul-de-sac for my next stop. I grabbed the pkg from the back and as I was starting to exit the truck that overwhelming urg to puke came over me. So there I was on my hands and knees in the middle of the St. letting the cookies fly. I picked myself up, brushed off, grabbed the box again and turned towards the house, and there with the screen door open looking at me was the lady of the house. Apparently she had heard the truck pull up and come to the door right away and saw the whole thing.
  16. I was a helper last Christmas and it was dark as heck outside and we pulled up to the stop and I grabbed the package and bolted out the door and up the lawn and the next thing I know Im picking the dirt out of my mouth. Turns out there was a small fence in the ground about ankle high. The driver, she saw the whole thing, couldnt stop laughing.

    Me too! (Or maybe I've put those traumatic events out of my mind).

    It didn't happen at work but last halloween, I went to a bar - in what they called the VIP section. Well I had to do a number 2 all night and I thought, it's now or never. So, I stood in line, in my sexy Native Princess costume, to wait to use the single person bathroom. Well, when I finally got in to use the facility, did my business :-)poop:), and to my horror, I found that the toilet would not flush. It was running the entire time I was in there, but I thought it was just getting up the energy to flush. I began to frantically fill a plastic cup with water from the sink to fill the toilet. It was useless, that toilet would not flush. I began to panic.

    Then I took one long look in the mirror, and thought about the 10 people or so waiting in line to use the bathroom. I thought, "you gotta go out there sooner or later." Finally, I opened the door, laughed at the woman next in line and rejoined my group. My friends and I all laughed pretty hard, I was totally humiliated. To make things better, the staff hung a 'out of order' sign on the outside of the bathroom door so I could be reminded of my source of pride all night long. I probably could have left in shame but I was proud. Some say, that little piece of excriment is on display in the hall of fame of most embarrassing moments.

    I wonder what I can do this halloween to top myself :poop:

    I was driver helping back in peak of 2005, and we were really on a roll. The driver and I got along great and worked really well together. Anyway, in all my eagerness we were coming up on a stop and I had a package in my right arm, a long one. Not realizing how long it was (it was hanging out the door a few feet), I felt this thump and heard this crack, looked back and saw that I took out a mailbox. The package was still intact, but the mailbox, pole and all, was knocked over. The box actually cracked the wood! We left a note, called it in, and went back out on our merry way to play brown santa for a few more hours. I felt like an a-hole the rest of the day, but we had a good laugh about it the next day...
