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!:)

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!!!”

Secret Service Shamed After Drunk Agents Assault Cab Driver in South Korea

There is a history of poor behavior from the Secret Service during Democratic administrations.

You can tell a lot about a White House by the extracurricular nonsense that hits the press surrounding it.

For instance, after one of President Joe Biden’s dogs began biting random people on the grounds, we started hearing murmurs of just how terse and stressful the place had become, with dog behavior experts suggesting that the mood at 1600 Pennsylvania Avenue might have a lot to do with the aggression.

This week, the Biden administration beget more bad behavior, but this time it wasn’t from one of the First Pets.

Two U.S. Secret Service agents in South Korea were sent stateside ahead of President Biden’s arrival following their involvement in an off-duty alcohol-related incident.

The two agents, whose identities have not been made public, are on their way back to Washington, D.C. where they will face disciplinary action, a source familiar with the matter told Fox News.

Both agents apparently became intoxicated while not on duty. One of the agents then got into an altercation with a cab driver.

There could be more trouble coming, as well.

In South Korea, officials send mediators to the scene of low-level disputes and then determine if criminal charges would be filed.

One of the agents was interviewed by authorities and no charges have been filed.

The government released one of its usual, dry, boilerplate-esque missives.

“The Secret Service is aware of an off-duty incident involving two employees which may constitute potential policy violations,” USSS chief spokesman Anthony Guglielmi told Fox News. “We have very strict protocols and policies for all employees and we hold ourselves to the highest professional standards.”

There is a history of poor behavior from the Secret Service during Democratic administrations, with a notable incident having occurred in 2012, involving Barack Obama’s agents and a Colombian prostitute.
