I thought about covering the viral YouTube video of the FedEx delivery guy casually chucking a customer’s flat screen over a fence into their yard from earlier this week but at the time I asked myself one important question: “Is this something a relative over fifty might email to me?” Since the answer was a resounding “yes,” I passed. Even though the vid is averaging about a million views a day since Monday and FedEx has since issued an apology. We can’t be getting too local newsy around here.
But now that Conan has covered the story with a touch of hilarity, we’re in the clear. For the record, delivery men are more than welcome to punt, pass, and kick packages to my doorstep. Inflatable dolls are really difficult to damage.
