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!!!”

Southern Restaurant Scorched After Refusing to Serve Unvaccinated People

The unvaccinated are quickly becoming second class citizens in America.

In these late-stages of the pandemic, there are a number of emerging plot lines that almost seem more controversial than those that we experienced at the beginning of this fiasco, and it makes us wonder if some of it isn’t just for show. For instance, in the restaurant industry, where just about every businesses owner is struggling mightily, there are a number of different approaches to dealing with this latest “delta” variant of COVID-19.  This is of particular note now that many establishments had reopened during the lull in cases, and are now hanging on for dear life during “delta”. But one restaurant in the deep south has thrown their prosperity aside, and are making the controversial decision to serve only vaccinated customers. An Atlanta restaurant is making the bold decision to serve only customers who are fully vaccinated. Argosy Restaurant and Bar, located in East Atlanta Village, is one of the first businesses in Georgia to mandate with signs that say “No Vax, No Service.” The company owner made the decision earlier this week after he and several of his employees, who were all fully vaccinated, contracted the virus as breakthrough cases. The owner has suggested that these breakthrough cases were worse for business than treating the unvaccinated as though they are second class citizens. “We did it strictly as a business decision after multiple staff members tested positive,” said restaurant owner Armando Celentano. “We had to close down during a busy weekend, losing out on tens of thousands of dollars.” The decisions certainly stirred up a great deal of conversation on social media, where the restaurant received both praise and criticism for its decision.

US Women’s Soccer Team Skips Representing U.S.A. at Opening Ceremony

The ultra-woke U.S. women’s soccer team — big losers thus far — decided to skip representing the U.S.A. during the Olympics opening ceremonies.

The ultra-woke U.S. women’s soccer team — big losers thus far — decided to skip representing the U.S.A. during the opening ceremonies at the Tokyo Olympics Friday. The famously anti-American soccer team claimed that they could not attend because they were scheduled to attend practice during the opening event, according to WXIA-TV. “Obviously we can’t be there, I don’t know who scheduled us to practice at this time,” chief anti-American team star Megan Rapinoe told the media. The women’s soccer team was all about protesting against the U.S.A. during its first Olympics game this week but lost to New Zealand in a crushing 3-0 final. Rapinoe added that this year’s gams are different than past games. “It looks quite different and feels quite different than in the past, but all of us are thrilled to be here,” she said. Team members Abby Dahlkemper and Rapinoe enacted a lame “private parade” and posted it to Twitter: https://twitter.com/USWNT/status/1418557013739536390 The America-hating women’s soccer team was not the only American team that skipped the opening ceremonies. Both the women’s and the men’s U.S. gymnastics teams also skipped the ceremonies. They similarly held their own version of the parade” https://twitter.com/InsideGym/status/1418539840564572160 Follow Warner Todd Huston on Facebook at: facebook.com/Warner.Todd.Huston.
