A UPS driver is now out of a job after a customer claimed she caught him spitting on a package outside her door, but whether he grabbed one or not is up for debate.
This incident happened at the home of last Thursday Ann Patton in Ocala, FL – where the homeowner says she saw something on a security camera that led her to believe that a bitter UPS driver was taking small revenge by spitting on one of her packages.
Apparently UPS was going to drop by that day and pick up a separate package to be ready for the driver … but it wasn’t. Patton tells us she was never notified of a pickup by UPS, so nothing was left out.
Anyway, Patton claims that when the driver arrived and realized that what he had been sent there was nowhere to be found … he tried to get them back by picking up and spitting an Amazon package left earlier in the day on it … at least that’s what happened in Patton’s eyes, who caught the alleged spit on video.
Of course, the Pattons panicked and phoned UPS in a rage … saying they were told the driver would be canned, but claimed the company refused to replace their Amazon package. Of course there’s a lot to worry about when it spits on … COVID comes to mind.
Now, as for UPS … they have a slightly different version of events. The company tells us that they did fire the man – who was a temporary vacation driver – but only out of caution, because in their eyes … it’s not clear whether he spat or not.
Decide for yourself … UPS said it seemed their guy mistakenly thought it was the package he was there to pick up and just followed protocol by blowing on the label to clean it so he UPS label. They think when he realized it was the wrong package, he just left.
Anyway, they say he’s gone … and they’ve made extensive apologies to the Pattons over and over again. They also say they want to see the full video before offering an additional fee, but they claim the Pattons have yet to hand over the raw footage.
