At least the customer is being reasonable about it and not trying to sue or something. Dude was clearly having a terrible day or something. Went crazy. I would love to hear his explanation of why he did it, what was going through his head at the time :laugh:

At least there the store behind it. I've had a few packages delivered the last few days that were about 10 ft away from my garage door. Looks like the driver just leaned out dropped them and drove away....

I think its fake, but who cares what i think. He tosses the monitor at the very end with his finger tips like the box was empty. 80% of OMG youtube videos are fake, they generate a big revenue and everybody is trying to fool the audiance.
If you comment with different opinion will get deleted or raged.

Its a money making factory these kind of videos nowdays, i find that it demonstrates how fake our society really is. Its cool to fake and gets you go far.

I think if there was any doubt, of that video being non-legit, FedEx would not have acknowledged it through a press release.

It's not even close of being fake, the incident is very much real. pretty much making news around the web and on tv (it was on cnn last week). i suggest you get
you facts straight before dismissing it as fake.

When i heard it on the news i expected that he didn't know whats int he package (fedex box), but this was pretty obvious. Receiver will get another monitor and fedex guy will loose a job.

Doubt it broke, he tossed it into the grass, if he was intentionally trying to break it, I would have spiked it onto the driveway.

My general experience with FedEx is that they just leave things by the door and do not knock which in my case means most of my stuff is either stolen or ruined by rain.
