“Sorry, we missed you. Your parcel can now be picked up at a depot open two hours a day.”
Written on a delivery card posted through the door, it’s always a frustrating message to receive.
Especially while many of us are working from home and indeed are in our houses all of the time.
But spare a thought for many delivery drivers – overworked and underpaid, with a huge increase in demand since the pandemic began.
It’s certainly not an easy job and a kind word or gesture goes a long way in these tough times.
One woman was praised after she replaced a rather rude note left by her neighbour for a delivery driver.
She shared her efforts on TikTok – and lots of people were impressed by her approach.
In the caption of the video, she added: “Rude people ruin days.”
The original note said: “Leave package on the God damn f*** door for f* sake.”
As easy as it is to get frustrated, it’s unlikely to help your situation if you leave a note like that.
But the unknown woman @katiehenry24 switched it up – adding in her video: “Mmm I felt that the Fedex guy doesn’t need that type of negativity in his life.”
She replaced the fuming note with one that said: “How about PLEASE. P.S. Manners matter.”
Lots of people applauded her efforts to take down the original note.
One person commented: “Not all heroes wear capes.”
Another joked: “I would’ve waited till the package get delivered thane excessively duck taped it to their door and said: “Happy? It’s ON your door.”
A third added: “Why she gotta be rude like that. Poor Fedex driver :(“
Meanwhile, one woman was left mortified after discovering that she had been wearing an outfit incorrectly for the past four years.
She went viral on TikTok after sharing the hilarious moment she realised her error.
The woman, known as Madison, even shared photos of herself wearing the outfit over the years – leaving viewers in hysterics at her mistake.
