Air Mail': Camera Catches USPS Worker Launching Fragile Package Over Fence

Remember when The Blaze reported that a FedEx worker threw a package over a customer’s fence -- and that it was caught on camera?

It looks like a similar situation has occurred, only this time it isn’t FedEx, it’s the United States Postal Service (USPS).

“Say it ain’t so, Joe…”

Michael Oreb ordered a 1938 German black forest cuckoo clock and opted to have the (USPS) deliver it.

“I tracked it all the way from Pennsylvania to Bell Gardens to here,” Oreb said to NBC LA.

When the USPS truck pulled up, Oreb happened to be watching his surveillance video and was shocked by what he saw next (via NBC LA):

“I looked and he pulled up, threw it (the box) over the fence and then got in the van and drove off. I went out there and picked up the thing and he was already up the street,” said Oreb.

“I pretty much figured that it was going to be damaged from the distance that he’d thrown it,” Oreb said.

The rare, antique clock was definitely damaged.

“The chains no longer work. I guess they're jammed up in the back. And one of them is off the rails. And the second hand is catawampus, it's loose. But I don't know what the other ones do but I don't know what else is broke until I take it in and have them look at it,” said Oreb.

Oreb said he immediately called the postal service to tell them what he caught on video, reports NBC LA. He says a helpful company representative was at his door in 10 minutes, but he wouldn’t let her take the clock, the report says.

“I will take it in and find me a repairman who works on antique clocks and have them repair it and I’ll send them the bill,” said Oreb.

USPS released the following statement:

The U.S. Postal Service was dismayed to see the video of one of our employee throwing a parcel over a fence. That does not represent the kind of service we strive to provide our customers. ... This matter is currently being investigated to determine the appropriate actions to be taken with regards to the employee and our customer.

Luckily for the driver, Oreb is a forgiving soul and isn't pressing the USPS to fire the driver.

“I think he should be reprimanded - maybe put through some more training and stuff like that 'cause you never know what's inside the packages when you see them,'“ he said.

Considering the financial hole the USPS is already in, they might want to invest in keeping customers happy; they may not be around much longer if they don’t.
