Not all heroes wear capes, but some do wear delivery uniforms.

An American woman had the ultimate online shopping experience, after her Amazon delivery driver not only dropped off her package, but also took care of the spider that was lurking around her front door.

Sharing her journey to TikTok, Gwen Sanchez shared a screenshot of her Amazon delivery’s “additional instructions,” where she'd asked the courier to leave her package in front of her garage rather than the front door, due the a large spider "refusing to leave."

The giant arachnid left her terrified to walk outside

"I'm too scared to go out to my front door," Ms Sanchez wrote in her delivery note. "If you could kill the spider for me that would be amazing. Thank you!”

In footage from the security camera the courier is seen walking up to the front door, calmly removing his shoe then killing the spider, much to the amazement of Ms Sanchez and fellow TikTok users, immediately prompting the search for the mystery man.

“Help me find this driver so I can thank him!” she captioned the post.

"Did you just launch a new Amazon service?" one user joked, with another joking: "Do you pay extra for this?"

“That was not a spider,” one person declared. “That was a demon from the underworld and I would have burned the whole house down.”

Although most users were amazed at the driver's generous act, a few questioned why the spider had to be killed, rather than just moving it some place else.

"Just leave them be, they're great pest control," one user commented under a video.

However, most users agreed with Ms Sanchez's methods.

"That spider was big enough to pay rent," one woman argued back in response. "You did what you had to do."

Still on the lookout for her spider hero

Despite the video doing the rounds online, Ms Sanchez still hasn't found her spider saviour, updating TikTokers in a recent video showing a note she'd left outside her house.

"Hello Amazon! Thank you for killing the spider yesterday, you are actually TikTok famous now," she wrote.

"The people of TikTok want to know: a) are you single? b) what's your Venmo?"

"I ordered a few things for delivery today," she added in the comments. "Hopefully it's Amazon delivery!"
