Kicker – A magical delivery

NICK EICHER, HOST: Receiving a package is almost always fun. But some delivery drivers go above and beyond. 

Lynn Staffieri of Delaware ordered a pet playpen from Amazon. Nothing out of the ordinary about that. But she didn’t realize that her teenage son had set some delivery instructions as a default setting on orders. 

It only became apparent when she saw the recording from the doorbell camera in a video that’s gone viral. 

And, well, here’s what happened:

AUDIO: [Knock, knock, knock] Abra cadabra!

Staffieri’s son instructed the driver to do that and clearly the driver had a great attitude about it, following the instructions to the letter—knock, say the magic words, and then run!

Staffieri thanked the driver in a Facebook post, saying she appreciated the driver’s attention to detail that made thousands of people laugh.

Then she spoke with her son and I think they probably took those instructions down.

It’s The World and Everything in It.
