UPS Delivery Man Caught On Video Throwing, Kicking Packages Out Of Truck

Bah, humbug!

It looks like someone is getting coal for Christmas.

A frustrated United Parcel Service employee was caught on camera throwing and kicking packages out of his delivery truck and onto the floor in Waikiki, Hawaii, last week. 

The video below was filmed by a witness who was eating lunch near the loading zone of a shopping center known as "Luxury Row" which includes stores such as Chanel, Coach and Gucci, according to Hawaii News Now.

The driver became frustrated because he was having difficulties maneuvering his truck, witnesses told the news station.

UPS wouldn't identify the man in the video or say if he had been fired, but they did tell local news stations that the company has taken "corrective action" against the individual and has been in contact with the customer who was receiving those packages.

"We are sorry this has happened, especially during this time of year," Suzanne Rosenberg, a UPS spokeswoman, told local news station KITV4. "But this does not reflect the hard work of so many UPS drivers and others loading and unloading around Hawaii."

In September, UPS announced that it was hiring up to 95,000 temporary employees to help offset delays during the holiday shopping season.

UPS delivers more than 18 million packages each day, the company told KHON2, and those numbers double during the holidays, which can sometimes lead to rare human and machine errors. 

However, UPS insisted that the worker's behavior in the video is an aberration.

"This is not how we train our drivers," UPS said in a statement. "UPS emphasizes delivery care and safety for placement of packages in vehicles and handling, despite a busy day and increased volume at this time of year."
