A postwoman has been hailed an ‘impressive shot’ after she hurled a parcel through an upstairs window when the homeowners were out - and managed to land it on the bed.
Laura Chaisty found a red ‘sorry we missed you card’ when she got home from work in Faringdon, Oxon.
But the slip contained the hilarious message: “Your top window was wide open, I threw it in there.”
She was “shocked” when she found the Royal Mail parcel had landed perfectly on her bed.
Laura, 27, a coffee barista, was not expecting the parcel which contained gym supplements for her fiancee, Dale Townsend.
Laura said: “It was just hilarious. I was shocked because of where it had landed.
“And from the angle she threw from it must have been an impressive throw.
"She would have had to get the parcel underneath the window and not through it.
Post puts postie in hot water
“I just shared the story on Facebook and Snapchat and now it has thousands of views. I can’t believe it.
“In 27 years it is one of the funniest things that has happened to me.”
A Royal Mail spokesperson said: “We are happy to hear that this customer received her parcel safely in this instance.”
“However, we do ask our postmen and women to adhere to our established procedures for delivering items of mail, in order to keep the items we deliver safe and secure.
“We will be reminding our staff in the Faringdon area of this.
"Any customers with concerns about their mail should contact Royal Mail Customer Services.”
