The Three-Word Reason This UPS Driver Couldn’t Deliver a Package Just Went Viral

Published

I think one of the most sobering reminders that we live in a fallen world is that, no matter how advanced technology gets or how elaborate human infrastructure becomes, nature will often still find a way to beat us at our own game.

It certainly is a marvel these days that, with a few clicks on our smartphones, we can have a plethora of goods delivered right to our front porch.

However, as long as drone delivery and autonomous vehicles remain in the testing stages, mortal humans are still required to drive, and then physically place the packages containing these goods in our mailbox or on our porch.

And, well, sometimes these mortal humans encounter bears.

A UPS driver in North Carolina last week left a note for a customer for whom his attempt to deliver a package had failed, and he left a simple, three-word reason that has no gone viral:

Bear in driveway. 

Like I say. Only in Asheville!:)

Posted by Marcy Lanier on Friday, 24 August 2018

Marcy Lanier, who lives in Ashville, posted the note on her Facebook page, where friends and family clearly enjoyed the unusual reason her package was unable to be delivered, although some thought the UPS driver was far too timid.

“I woulda wrestled that bear and delivered that package,” wrote one of her friends.

Lanier, who later spoke to local news, also seems to have thought it wasn’t a good enough reason not to deliver the package, saying “We get bears all the time. So there was a bear in the driveway, so he couldn’t drop it off on my front porch. He normally drops my packages on my front porch. So that’s how it happened. He could stay safe in his truck, on the road.”

She added that the mailbox was a safe distance from the driveway.

One of her friends, however, had a very good suggestion:

“Should have used FedEx — remember Tom Hanks in Castaway? He delivered at the end of the movie and look what he went through!!!”

Bernie Sanders Proposes Universal Child Care That Costs $1.5 Trillion To Be Financed By ‘Tax On Extreme Wealth’

Published

on

Sen. Bernie Sanders, a proud socialist running for the Democratic Party’s presidential nomination take on President Trump this year for the White House, has just unveiled a new plan to guarantee child care through age three, as well as universal free prekindergarten education, and the cost for this program is absolutely mind blowing. The plan would cost — get ready for this — a whopping $1.5 trillion, yes “trillion,” and would be funded by a tax on the “extreme wealth” of the country, whatever that means. Here’s more from The Washington Examiner: The Democratic presidential candidate said that the proposal would “substantially reduce the massive level of wealth inequality in America, create new and good jobs, enable parents to more easily balance the demands of work and home, and give our children the best chance at leading healthy, happy lives.” The Vermont senator would pay for the proposal through his wealth tax on those with over $32 million in net worth. His campaign has said that this tax would raise approximately $4.35 trillion over 10 years. Sanders’s campaign says the proposal will improve job flexibility for parents, improve childhood development, and increase wages and training for child care workers. Other top Democratic candidates, such as Sen. Elizabeth Warren and former mayors Pete Buttigieg and Mike Bloomberg, have also put forward their own child care plans, but Sanders’s is the broadest and most expensive. If you were on the fence about whether or not Bernie Sanders was a legitimate socialist, this massive big government program and subsequent tax designed to redistribute wealth should remove all doubt. A program of this magnitude would decimate our economy, and this isn’t even including all the other insane things that Sanders wants to implement. His policies would utterly destroy our country, which is why we…

President Trump announced that India has reached a $3 billion defense deal with the United States, which includes the country purchasing several military-grade helicopters. Trump delivered a speech on Monday alongside Indian Prime Minister Narendra Modi in the Sardar Patel Stadium, which is the largest cricket stadium in the country, capable of housing more than 100,000 people. During his talk, Trump confirmed that the U.S. had approved the purchase of several military helicopters from America as part of the larger defense deal between the two countries. Here’s more from The Washington Examiner: “The United States looks forward to providing India with the best and most-feared military equipment on the planet. We make the greatest weapons ever made — airplanes, missiles, rockets, ships. We make the best, and we are dealing now with India,” the president said. He continued, “I am pleased to announce that tomorrow our representatives will sign deals to sell over $3 billion in the absolute finest, state-of-the-art military helicopters and other equipment to the Indian armed forces.” Trump, who held a rally with Modi in Texas in September, described the friendship between the two nations as being strong. He called Modi a “great friend” and vowed that the U.S. and India would remain allies. https://twitter.com/narendramodi/status/1231918893964251136 Both countries were due to talk about trade during the state visit, however the president stated that no deal has been finalized at this time. He spoke with reporters saying that he felt “no rush” to complete negotiations, but added that “We are doing well with India, we are making deals.” Trump’s speech in India was accepted with warm applause from the packed out stadium. He went on to thank the crowd gathered to hear him speak for the “spectacular welcome,” saying he would never forget the “remarkable hospitality” of the Indian…
