Man records video of postal clerk throwing packages in Fort Worth

Featured Video Play Icon
The video shows two unidentified employees behind the front counter, with one of them using some muscle to throw packages, boxes and other mail into far away mail bins.

“I was thinking, ‘Man, some of those boxes may have breakable things in it,” said Reddish. “She didn’t look at all happy.”

Reddish’s Facebook post is going viral, notching thousands of views in the past couple of days. Most of the viewers aren’t too impressed with what they see.

Neither was the USPS, which issued a statement:

“A mishandled package is unacceptable and does not reflect the careful efforts of the thousands of professional, dedicated employees in our workforce. We were disappointed to see the actions of the clerk in the video and apologize for any inconvenience. The Postal Service is investigating the matter and will follow up to reaffirm existing guidelines governing how to correctly handle mail and packages.”

Paul M Yeckering

That’s why they call it throwing parcels.

Charlina Cricket Phillips-Johnson

It didn’t say fragile. So throw it go

The only people who get in trouble for throwing packages are the carriers. Why? I have no clue. They are thrown from the minute you mail it to the minute it’s given to the carrier.

Linda Jean

Not in our PO !

O dear gawd!! She threw that package like a beast. (Sarcasm)
If your shipment is fragile then it better say it in big bold letters. This is a package center and this is how it goes. Package your stuff correctly and all is well. If not I suggest you insure your items.

And put DO NOT FOLD in front if you don’t want us to fold/bend it. Don’t know how many times i’ve seen pictures and diplomas without that.

Do they not realize how the system would shut down if we walked every…single…parcel…?!

Noah Andrew Treviño

Then it would really be considered snail mail. Lol
