Postman’s ‘stupid’ delivery forces woman to search 800-acres for parcel
We all know know the frustration of delivery parcels being left in unexpected places.
Many people know the frustration of delivery parcels being left in unexpected places.
But one enraged Australian woman was forced to scour her 800-acre outback property after her order was left sitting on a random tree in the bush.
All she had received from Australia Post, the government-run postal service, was a delivery notification and a nondescript picture that led to an arduous outback scavenger hunt.
‘Thank you, Australia Post, just when I thought you guys couldn’t get any f**king stupider,’ she said.
‘I got a message earlier to say my parcel has been delivered, normally gets delivered to our local stores seeing as we’re not exactly in town.
‘I go down to the store … store doesn’t have it.
‘I looked into the Australia Post [app] and they’ve said they’ve left it in a safe spot.’
Heidi said she thought any rational person would have left the delivery on her driveway or at the front gate.
After being reassured it had arrived she was left puzzled as to where on earth it actually was.
‘I’ve just found my parcel, which is worth $100,’ she said.
‘Any sensible person, you would think, would drive up the driveway to the house at the top and leave it up there.
‘But no, not this clown. [They thought], “I’ll just drive in and pick a tree and hope like f**k the owner finds it.”
‘Thank Christ the owner did find it.’
In the TikTok short she turns after her rant and shows the parcel sitting on a stump under a tree.
‘Only by sheer luck, I had no idea which tree this was under,’ she said.
‘Low and behold, here it is.
‘Cheers Australia Post, well done.’
