Picture this: you purchased a brand new TV, but when UPS delivers it you are not at home so the delivery man hides your package so people passing by don’t see it. The problem is that they place it under a welcome mat where it’s pretty much in plain view or worse, in agarbage can where it could get thrown away.

OK, we get that they mean well, but these are SERIOUSLY the worst attempts at hiding packages.

The delivery man could have turned the mat around:

At least the packages are neatly stacked:

C’mon bro, you didn’t even try…

Thank you, @UPS, for concealing my delivery in such a way that thieves would not be able to steal it. Thank you. pic.twitter.com/cX2QdfUXV1
