“Yikes”, really? This is a condemnable offense? The guys job is to deliver a package to the doorstep, and hundreds a day, the fact that he tosses it to the doorstep from a few feet away is really not worth shaking your head over. The OP hasn’t stated that the contents were broken, and I for myself am having trouble thinking of what might not be good to be tossed from a few feet away in a package that size (eggs, an unsecured, un-cushioned light bulb/hard drive?). In my experience the contents of the hundreds of packages I have received are designed and packaged to absorb such a small jostle. If something is broken or damaged—return it, I don’t doubt for a second amazon tracks what drivers are experiencing high return rates, so this guy takes a calculated risk based on the size and weight of the box. I bet some of these drivers have so much experience delivering packages and reading labels they can tell you the contents without even looking inside the box and without reading the label.
Now the fact that some people here are getting upset about it and implying the guy should lose his job by actually doing his job–delivering a small package to a door step, now that causes me to go yikes!
