25% of Delivery Drivers Do This While On The Job…
It’s amazing that a package can arrive in 24 hours . . . and apparently, if those packages could talk, they could share some INTERESTING stories.
In a survey of more than 500 delivery drivers and couriers, 25% admitted to HOOKING UP with someone in the delivery truck. Which is . . . a lot. It sounds like that means they were on the clock . . . but it’s unclear if the other person was someone they knew, or someone they just brought a delivery to.
Some drivers also admitted to other bad behavior, like: Intentionally damaging packages (23%) . . . marking a package as delivered when it wasn’t (18%) . . . opening and resealing packages (17%) . . . peeing in bottles in the truck (10%) . . . and peeing on or around a customer’s house (9%).
Drivers also talked about why THEY get upset at customers . . . and the top response was “tipping poorly” (73%). They also get annoyed if: Your dogs bark at them (57%) . . . your neighbors are rude (35%) . . . your home or front door is difficult to get to (34%) . . . and your neighborhood feels unsafe (17%).
Also get this: More drivers get frustrated by customers who are “overly-friendly” (34%) than if you’re UN-friendly (30%). (???)
