Why walk somewhere when you can drive? That was apparently the thinking employed by a United States Postal Service worker who drove over a customer’s front yard instead of walking up to the home’s porch to deliver a small package. And the whole thing was of course, caught on video, or we’d be none the wiser.
Because the thorough folks at Reddit notice everything, commenters are pointing out that not only is this a really great way to damage the grass and probably not allowed under USPS rules for employees, but that USPS drivers aren’t supposed to back up the vehicles — which the woman does on her way back to the street — making the whole thing an incident the higher-ups would definitely not approve of.
Really, it’s just mind-boggling why anyone would do such a thing. Even the worker’s fellow postal workers are shocked, with one commenter writing: “As a carrier who walks 12 miles a day, this is appalling.”
