VIDEO: FedEx feeling the heat as video surfaces of employee hurling package

Canada Post sparked controversy this week when a video showing one of their employees making no attempt at delivering a package went viral.

Now, they can breathe a sigh of relief as FedEx is in the package delivery hot seat because of a video uploaded to Reddit on Thursday.

In the video, which was filmed in Markham, Ontario, a FedEx employee is seen walking to the front steps of the residence where he hurls the package towards the front door.

"Thanks FedEx delivery guy," Mike Jones wrote on his Reddit post.

Thanks FedEx delivery guy! from r/toronto

Jones added that though the package had no damages, he expects they shouldn't be delivered that way.

"No, nothing was damaged. I'll admit he has a good technique but I think it's fair to expect packages to not be delivered this way."

After the video surfaced, some residents responded with package delivery horror stories of their own, others claimed it was an isolated incident, while a few just commented on the delivery man's impressive throwing form.

"Totally an isolated incident that will be swiftly dealt with," commented Reddit user __Parallax__.

"Champion rock skipper," said Reddit user TorontoJD.

"Way worse than the Canada post guy hahaha," commented Meatpony.
