A homeowner in Sacramento County, California, is down in the dumps after an Amazon delivery contractor left a pile of feces in front of his house.
Nemy Bautista wasn’t home on Tuesday when the driver pooped in front of his house, but he saw the excrement evidence when he came home. Bautista then checked his surveillance cameras and noticed the driver squatting on the passenger side of the truck.
He tried to get to the bottom of this mess by contacting Amazon via this Facebook post:
Bautista told local station KBET that the driver’s supervisor came out to investigate.
“He was in shock when we saw the size of it,” Bautista said. “He ended up scooping it up with a plastic bag, but didn’t want to take it with him ― it smelled really bad.”
Bautista told CBS Sacramento that he suspects “the garbage can will smell like shit for the next few days.”
He added, “I also had to hose down the gutter/sidewalk area after [the supervisor] left.”
An Amazon spokesman told HuffPost that the majority of packages this holiday season are being delivered without issue and that the company tried to work quickly to make this particular situation right.
The online retail giant also issued an official statement:
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.
The company gave Bautista a gift card to apologize for all the crap he had to deal with, but he told KTXL TV that his real concern was for the customers who had packages delivered by the driver after that person pooped.
