Postman throws parcel into a bush

Expecting a letter from your mum, girlfriend or whoever? Try searching your garden.

After a Phuket Facebook user found her EMS parcel in the bush outside her office on Wednesday, she obtained CCTV footage of the rogue postman and posted it online.

The postman turned up at her house when nobody was home and decided that he should sign for the parcel and then throw it into a nearby bush..

“I found out from the CCTV footage that the postman signed as a receiver himself and threw my parcel into the bush,” the user wrote, “That’s awesome!.”

The user, Chomnad Chanrod, added that the CCTV footage was recorded on Saturday and she discovered her parcel in her garden four days later.

According to Sanook, this morning, Thailand Post said that they have investigated the issue and suspended the postman in question.

“Thailand Post has visited this customer and apologized for our mistake. We have suspended this employee and will make sure this area’s post service is processed with care. The customer has confirmed the object in her parcel is not damaged. In case your delivered-parcel is damaged, you can also submit a complaint to us. Thailand Post will issue a reimbursement if proved it is our fault.”
