You would be forgiven for wondering how we all managed before internet shopping.
The idea that you can imagine a gift or need and just type it into google, select, pay and wait for it to arrive on your doorstep just a few days later would have blown all our minds a decade ago.
However, for better or for worse, this is now a reality in the western world and definitely makes Christmas a lot easier.
But for all the packages that need to get to our homes within a certain time frame there are the hardworking delivery men and women that make all of this possible.
Most of us don’t really give much thought to these amazing Christmas elves that make the frantic, festive season a lot easier, but, thankfully there are people that have spared a thought and decided to leave their own special packages to say thank you.
Goodies on offer
One of these thoughtful people is Kathy Ouma, from Middletown, Delaware who not only left a box of snacks for all her delivery people, but recorded their reactions with this latest one going viral.
Kathy left a box of treats outside her door with a note that read: ” “UPS, USPS, AMAZON, FEDEX – please take some goodies to enjoy on your route. Thank you for making holiday shopping easy. The Ouma family.”
According to her Facebook page Kathy leaves the goodies out every year and decided to share one of her delivery guy’s reaction to the box of delights.
The delivery man is very excited when he spots the snacks and reads the note, “This is nice,” he shouts, followed by: “Oh wow, this is sweet.”
After taking a few snacks he then does a happy dance on the way back to his delivery truck.
More than 8 million people have watched the video which has clearly brightened so many people’s days, given the comments.
Hopefully this story will also inspire more people to show their gratitude toward others during this often stressful and frantic time.
Please share this story and help spread the cheer.
