AN AMAZON customer was flabbergasted when a delivery driver hurled a box of lightbulbs through an upstairs window while she was out.
Claudine McLaren returned home on Monday to find a card saying the package had been ‘left in the safe place you told us about’.
The driver added it had been ‘put through an open window’. Ms McLaren said she thought the message was ‘weird’ as all the downstairs windows were closed — but then found the box of £9.99 LED lightbulbs on the floor of her spare bedroom.
‘I was absolutely amazed,’ the 43-year-old yoga teacher said. ‘The window is over 10ft up — he must have stood on the pavement and chucked it through.
‘I’m surprised he got it in. The window isn’t much bigger than the box itself.’
Ms McLaren, of Houghton on the Hill, Leicestershire, added: ‘I found the whole thing hilarious. But if the bulbs had been broken, I might have felt differently.’
An Amazon spokesman said: ‘We have very high standards for our delivery partners and expect every package to be handled with care.’
