With only a few days remaining for packages to be shipped and delivered before the holiday, UPS delivery drivers are working long hours. One driver was pleasantly surprised by a friendly animal as he waited to hand deliver a package.
UPS driver Oscar Luciano was on his normal route delivering packages when he received a surprise. He rang the bell of his delivery and was jamming to some music when a friendly furry-tailed animal stopped him in his tracks. He was patiently waiting for the resident to answer the door to deliver the package, when he felt something land on his shoulder.
It’s a bird, it’s a plane, nope – it is a leaping squirrel. “I’m always jamming to music, so I’m bobbing my head,” Luciano told The Dodo. “[Then] this squirrel just jumped out of nowhere.”
The friendly squirrel crawled across his back and peered over his head before leaping off back into the bushes. Luciano started laughing and at first was surprised, but not afraid.
“I think squirrels are cool. I love animals, so I guess that’s why I didn’t get scared,” he said. “That was actually pretty cool. I felt like Snow White and her furry friends.”
The resident’s security camera captured the rare moment. The viral video has made many people’s day. Watch the surprise attack in the video below.
