Rather than wallowing in frustration or resorting to anger, he looked at the problem in a humane way. Then, he realized that perhaps the delivery people were simply tired and overwhelmed by the heat.

Package with snacks meant for the delivery person.

“I’ve been having issues with UPS throwing my packages, going crazy, so I decided to go get some ice, get some water, get some crackers, and we’re gonna leave them some snacks and water since it’s probably hot, they’re probably frustrated,” he explained in the viral video.

With a handwritten note encouraging the delivery person to take snacks and water, the trap was set. As the video revealed, the UPS delivery man happily took a bottle of water and some crackers. A small yet powerful act of kindness transformed the daily routine of package delivery into a moment of unexpected connection and gratitude.
