A Sacramento California home received a special delivery from Amazon that wasn’t quite what they had ordered.
A contracted delivery driver making deliveries on Tuesday decided that the call of nature couldn’t be ignored any longer, and dropped trou right on Nemy Bautista's driveway. She then squatted down low behind the cover of her passenger side door and proceeded to evacuate her bowels.
Once the dirty deed was done she hiked up her pants, ran around to the driver’s side, and sped away at top speed, leaving the stinking pile of human manure at the end of Bautista’s driveway.
The whole thing was caught on security camera.
After coming home from work, Bautista immediately saw the feces on his driveway and went to review the security footage to see what had happened. He then posted a picture from the video to his Facebook which called Amazon out for the awful delivery service.
"Amazon.com Why is your driver squatting in-front of my house?” Bautista began on Facebook. “Let me give you a hint ... he/she is not tying their shoes. I have it on video!"
The delivery driver doesn’t work directly for Amazon but is instead an outside contractor to help deal with the high volume of deliveries the online merchant deals with every holiday season. The U-Haul truck is also rented by the contractor to make those deliveries.
After speaking on the phone with Amazon about the video footage, Amazon contacted their contractor and ordered them to send someone to go clean up the mess the driver left. A supervisor did drive out to Bautista’s home but was ill-equipped to remove the fecal matter himself, lacking rubber gloves or even a shovel.
The supervisor managed to collect the bulk of it into a plastic bag but couldn’t bear to actually transport it away, leaving Bautista to throw it in his garbage.
"He was in shock when he saw the size of 'it.' He ended up scooping it up with a plastic bag, but didn't want to take it with him (it smelled really bad)," Bautista wrote in a subsequent Facebook post.
Amazon released the following statement in response to the incident: "This does not reflect the high standards we have for delivery service providers. This individual is no longer delivering Amazon packages and we're in direct communication with the customer."
Amazon has also stated that the driver has been “dealt with”, and Bautista has been given a gift card for his trouble. Hopefully a big one.
