GEORGIA, UNITED STATES: Navigating the role of a package courier is far from simple. Endless hours on the road are dedicated to pinpointing the recipient’s elusive address, the eventual delivery to their doorstep a meticulous dance.

Certain couriers take the unconventional route of flinging parcels onto doorsteps, a strategic manoeuvre to expedite their journey to the next destination.

Yet, picture this: What if the entrusted package is treated less than delicately? Or worse, what if vexation marks their face as the delivery is made? This might prompt recipients to consider confronting them with verbal or written complaints to express their dissatisfaction.

Nevertheless, an intriguing incident unfolded in Atlanta, Georgia, where a homeowner took an unconventional approach.

The homeowner, identified by their Instagram handle “orangeking26,” shared a peculiar encounter with a courier on his social media page.

The video post, which has garnered a staggering four million views since it was uploaded on 28 July, showcased the courier throwing and delivering the package in an evidently annoyed manner.

What transpired next defied expectations. Rather than escalating the situation, the homeowner devised a thoughtful response.

In the video, he placed a box of essential supplies—comprising water and crackers—on his porch.

The intention was to offer these items to the hardworking drivers, enabling them to replenish and rehydrate during their demanding routes, particularly in the sweltering weather conditions.

In the creator’s own words, “Pretty much UPS has been throwing my packages when they deliver them and seems very frustrated at delivering my packages, so instead of fighting fire with fire, I decided to do something nice for them and be more understanding of the situation at hand and it worked.”

Indeed, the solution he implemented appears to have produced positive results.

Subsequent package deliveries were notably more careful, eschewing the prior rough treatment.

Astonishingly, one courier even paused to express gratitude for the considerate gesture, appreciating the refreshing drinks and nourishing crackers provided.

Cue a wave of reactions from netizens

The homeowner’s benevolence garnered praise from numerous netizens, yet a significant faction believed it to be redundant, citing the inherent occupational risks associated with being a package courier.
