Mum praises Hermes driver’s sense of humour after seeing hysterical proof of delivery

A mum has been left cracking up over the photo she was sent by a Hermes delivery driver to show proof that he had delivered one of her parcels ahead of Christmas

A mum who was expecting several items to be delivered ahead of the Christmas period has been left in stitches thanks to a Hermes delivery driver.

Krystle Osbourne had a package delivered by the courier company while she was at work and was left cracking up when she checked her emails for proof of delivery.

The 37-year-old from Filey, North Yorkshire, was surprised to see that the photo attached to the message showed her three-year-old son’s hand poking through the letterbox.

The parcel is clearly too big through the letterbox, but young Alfie seems determined to ‘sign’ for it.

Luckily, the parcel still made its way safely to Krystle, and the mum-of-two saw the funny side – finding the picture hysterical.

Speaking to Jam Press, she said: I got an email notification to say my parcel had been delivered, which I didn’t look at straight away.

“With it coming up to Christmas, I’ve had quite a few and it’s always the same chap who delivers from this particular courier.

“The pictures are usually of either my mum’s or brother’s feet in the open doorway as they look after my son and daughter while I’m at work.

“So it wasn’t until a few days after I’d received the parcel that I’d actually saw the picture that he’d attached as the proof of delivery which made me laugh out loud.

“I’m assuming it gave him a giggle too and that’s why he submitted it.”

New rules for traders and hauliers who move goods into Great Britain from the EU come into force on Jan 1 2022.

There is still time to take action and keep your business moving.

There is plenty of support on offer and the Government is ready to help you navigate your way through these new changes.

The mum added: “As always, I’m very happy with the service I receive from Hermes and am glad the delivery chap has a sense of humour.

“I laugh every time I look at this picture.”
