She whipped out her phone and hit record. She had no idea her video was about to take a dramatic turn.
Her jaw dropped as she watched a woman hop out of the back of the delivery van. What on earth was she doing in there and why was she wearing a black mini dress. Surely, this was against company policy.
Jenny Jackson was having a quiet morning. She sat at her bedroom window wrapped up in a blanket, scrolling through social media on her phone.
She booked the day off work to have a self-care day. She worked for a tech company and was in the middle of managing a huge project. She needed a day to destress.
Jenny lived in a large neighborhood in Miami, Florida. Her neighbors constantly changed so she didn’t know many of them well. In fact, none of them really knew each other at all. They didn’t nosy around in each other’s business.
But that all changed after Jenny caught one of her neighbors doing the unthinkable.
Apart from Jenny’s career in tech, she also spent her time building her social media following. Jenny was an avid TikTok user and loved watching and creating entertaining videos.
She secretly wanted to be an influencer, promoting brands and creating affiliations with comedy to pay her way through life on her own terms. All she needed was one of her videos to go viral.
Amazon Delivery Driver
While Jenny sat at the window, she saw yet another Amazon delivery van drive up in her neighborhood.
Just as predicted, the van pulled up at the house just opposite her. By now, Jenny was convinced that this neighbor had a shopping addiction. So she decided to do what she did best.
She took out her phone and hit record. She planned to make a funny video about her neighbor’s day being made by yet another delivery.
She prepared to film something mildly entertaining. But she had no idea her video was about to take a dramatic turn.
Something Was Wrong
She continued to film, but something was wrong. The driver wasn’t stepping out of the van. She wondered out loud what was taking the driver so long to deliver the goods.
Her hilarious commentary made the static video so much more entertaining. But just as she was about to stop filming, she saw something that would shock the nation.
The back door of the Amazon van opens and a woman wearing a black mini dress sneaks out from behind the door.
The Amazon driver held the door open for her. In other situations, he may have been considered quite a gentleman for doing so but in this scenario, it was more than a little eyebrow raising.
Jenny couldn’t believe what she was capturing. She was squealing in the background. “Oh my god. What in the world am I bearing witness to? I’m pretty sure this has to be against company policy, right?”, she joked.
She quickly uploaded the video to social media and it blew up – but for all the wrong reasons.
She filmed the woman hopping out of the Amazon delivery van and walking back to her house nearby. She walked in her bare feet, texting on her phone.
Her attire, as well as her suspicious mode of transport and the unusual behaviour of the two sparked racy speculation but the truth was far from it.
Needless to say, Jenny’s video spread like wildfire. Her video hit social media platforms and news channels all around America. It put Amazon under intense scrutiny on the code of conduct at their services.
And it wasn’t long before the driver was fired. But what actually happened? Suddenly, there was a knock at Jenny’s door.
Jenny opened the door to find the woman she filmed getting out of the Amazon van. She figured out that it was Jenny who secretly filmed her and published it online without her knowledge or permission.
She was visibly upset. Suddenly, Jenny felt awful. She never meant for anyone to get hurt but what the woman said next surprised her.
The woman told Jenny that she wished she handled the situation better and kept her privacy intact. She also wanted to explain to her what really happened that morning.
She was walking home in the early hours of the morning from a night out in the town and had lost her wallet. The driver saw her walking alone in the cold weather and took pity on her.
He offered her a lift to which she at first refused. However, she was desperate and soon accepted his offer. That was all there was to it.
The driver was also adamant that nothing more happened. However, he did violate company policy by taking her in. But were the two really telling the truth? Did nothing happen?
A rep for Amazon publicly stated that “This does not reflect the high standards we have for our Delivery Service Partners and their drivers. Allowing unauthorized passengers to enter delivery vehicles is a violation of Amazon policy, and the driver is no longer delivering packages to Amazon customers.”
What do you think happened?
