Couriers often get a bad rap. If a package gets damaged or even worse, stolen, it's usually the delivery driver who gets the blame.

But judging from a picture Danielle McPherson recently tweeted, some of them might not even be trying! When she came home, Danielle found her Amazon package laying on decorative rocks near the house, with a few of them thrown on top of the box.

Danielle's tweet instantly went viral and has already accumulated over 325K likes and 1.1K comments, many of which are other people sharing similar experiences.

Yes, these images scream "minimal effort" but have in mind that there's only so much a courier can do without a secure mailbox. Anyway, continue scrolling and check out the photos!

Brilliant. Plus, there aren't always roses, but there are always thorns.

According to Morgan Stanley estimates, Amazon is already delivering about half of its packages in the U.S. and will soon pass both United Parcel Service and FedEx in total volume.

Reportedly, Amazon Logistics more than doubled its share of U.S. package volumes from about 20% in recent history and is now shipping at a rate of 2.5 billion per year. For comparison, it is estimated that UPS and FedEx have U.S. shipping volumes of 4.7 billion and 3 billion packages per year, respectively.

"Customers love the transition of Prime from two days to one day — they've already ordered billions of items with free one-day delivery this year. It's a big investment, and it's the right long-term decision for customers," CEO Jeff Bezos said about the one-day Prime shipping on an earnings call at the end of 2019.

For his company, it’s not just about getting more packages to more customers at higher speeds. It’s also about owning everything from the arrival of a product at an Amazon factory (or the creation of the product from an Amazon subsidiary) to the so-called last-mile delivery to the customer’s doorstep. And the numbers say they have been doing quite a good job so far. What is your experience with Amazon deliveries? Tell us in the comments!

This actually makes it stand out more. It's not just a package - it's a package with a CAPE!

It kinda looks like you put the empty boxes out to trash though

That's a planter, not a trash bin.

What are they supposed to do with it anyway?? Can't complain if you don't have a plan. At least this guy tried

If you order something that is too big to be hidden, what do you expect them to do? Try staying at home to collect it.

I can't tell you the number of times I've very intentionally asked for the 'nondiscript' packaging, or whatever, expressly because the item *was* expensive, only for it to show up not in an amazon box, just it's normal, brightly labeled package. also, I'd be rather more pissed about the rummaging about to find the broom in the first place.

and what happens when you dont notice it and its trash day?

Guessing that from the street the pail/planter would have blocked most of it. Probably would have turned the TV around so that the part that stuck out beyond the planter was the white part of the box, to blend more against the white wall.

German here: How is this possible and acceptable? In Germany this would never happen as the delivery company is responsible for package until somebody receives it personally

Why would you order a TV online if you're not there to receive it??!!

If you have dogs, put up a box or sth. You can't expect the delivery gal/guy to deal with it.

Couriers don't have time to mess around with their deliveries. If you don't have an obvious spot for them to conceal your packages they can't be expected to create one. They do what they can. If there is a fenced in yard with a dog running loose, what are they supposed to do there? The pictures are funny though.

Paper bags are not made to handle rain or even snow. That is a bummer.
