That awkward moment when the postie accidentally drops your parcel down the loo

By Prudence Wade

*Facepalm*

There’s nothing more frustrating than being out when your parcel arrives, so this postman went above and beyond the call of duty to make sure that Sam Cooke got his mail.

However, his attempts to safely deposit the package into Sam’s house went slightly awry. Spying an open window, he lobbed it through and left a note saying “put through window.”

This is where things went slightly wrong, because unfortunately the open window was to the bathroom. This meant that the package fell straight into the loo.

When Sam got home to find his parcel down the dunny, he also found another note from the postie saying: “I’m really sorry I think your parcel might have fallen in the toilet accidentally.” You can’t fault him for his honestly.

Luckily, Sam saw the funny side in all this and his tweet soon went viral.

It gained so much buzz that even the Royal Mail saw it and apologised.

Sam will soon meet the postie in question, so hopefully they can all have a good laugh over this.

And don’t worry: the parcel (which was carrying printer ink) was luckily a bit too large to actually go down the toilet. That really would have been a royal flush.
