    Caught on camera: Delivery driver drops, kicks package that turns out to be fragile - 13 News Now

    The customer's Ring doorbell camera caught the driver's indelicate delivery outside her home

    “I was like “oh, f," recalled Coupe. "What is he doing?”

    A UPS driver is clearly seen in the video dropping and then kicking the package in which the lens was sent.

    He also has a phone in is hand the entire time.

    "Dropping could be an accident, you know, it’s okay. It could happen," said Coupe. "What bothered me is when he kicked and I said, “Oh boy, he doesn’t care about my package, you know?”

    Was he aiming for a 4 lb Yorkie in the backyard?

    Just watched the video-------it wasn't as though he was trying a drop kick for a field goal-----yes, he should have picked it up after he accidentally dropped it and placed it by the door, but it's not as though he threw it or stepped on it.

    Thought I read that he drop-kicked it. Article is even less interesting now.

    Pushing with your foot is not equivalent to kicking.
    But every delivery you should assume you are being recorded.
    Let’s all sigh in sympathy for the offended.

    How many of the folks that go on Shark Tank are there to get help and how many are there just for the free publicity?

    I was thinking more 50/50 when I wrote it but your response makes more sense.
