The postal worker is caught on the street outside the front door of a CCTV slingshot package that damages the religious book inside
- The homeowner in Williamsburg, New York, was gutted when the package broke
- CCTV shows the delivery person who hurls the parcel from the sidewalk to the door
- The package didn't even reach the door, but bounced down the stairs
Without worrying about the customer, this is the moment when a delivery person boldly hurls a fragile package from the street to the recipient's porch – and breaks it.
A homeowner in Williamsburg, New York, was disappointed when the religious hardcover book he ordered arrived with deep indentations in the cover pages.
But his dismay turned to rage when CCTV revealed that the USPS courier hadn't even bothered to get up the path, but instead decided to throw the package off the sidewalk.
The package didn't even reach the door, but bounced down the steps and into the snow.

A second video, also shared by the Williamsburg news site, is said to show the same indifferent delivery man who throws a package a few doors up the stairs of a second house, causing the porcelain product to be smashed.
After the recipient of the damaged religious book expressed his severe "disappointment" that his package had been treated with such terrible care, he shared the January 18 video.
It shows a frosty afternoon on Penn Street covered in snow and falling further.
The big white USPS van is stopped in the middle of the road and the cold-winded driver shows up with the white package.
He takes a few steps forward on the sidewalk before hurling the rectangular package over the railing to the door.
He seems to watch the parcel tumble down the stairs and nestle in the snow, but does not return to pick it up and trudges back to his van.

Broken china in a second package after a delivery man threw it to the front door of another house on the same street later that day – just to make it bounce off the top step
Later that day, another CCTV camera picked up a delivery man on Penn Street, who was believed to be the one marching at the foot of the front steps of a house.
He throws the package towards the door, but again it doesn't have enough flight and it hits the top step and rolls back.
The delivery man tries again with a more powerful throw, and this time the package hits the front door before it comes to rest.
Williamsburg News Outlet shared a picture of the broken china in the package.
USPS said: "The postal service saw the video and we are also disappointed to see our employees' actions.
`This is clearly an unacceptable behavior that does not reflect the efforts of thousands of professional, dedicated carriers in our workforce.
`We apologize to our customers who are affected by this promotion. The postal service is investigating the matter and will take appropriate measures to ensure that this does not happen again.
`In the unfortunate event that an item arrives damaged, customers should immediately file a claim on our USPS.com website.
"Customers who have concerns about their postal service should contact their local mail or the USPS Customer Care Center at 1-800-ASK-USPS."
The shocking handling of the packages came after a damn investigation by the Brooklyn neighborhood postal service.
