We live in a world where unsolicited advice is rampant. Most people don’t actually appreciate getting “helpful” advice when they didn’t ask for it, but when it can potentially save lives, most of us have trouble holding our tongue.
Jessica Huseman had no idea when she placed an Amazon order that her delivery driver might give her a quick tip that could be super important one day, but that’s exactly what happened.
Driver Kelsey, who has her own TikTok account, walked up to the house bearing a package. She’s cheerful and singing (as per usual), wishing the homeowner a good day.
We just moved in and this happened today…she’s not wrong though. Guess I need to get some house numbers. #amazondelivery
Then, though she points out that there are no house numbers to speak of, which makes the house more difficult to find.
While this is a mere annoyance for delivery drivers, it could mean a critical delay should they ever need police, ambulance, or other emergency personnel in the future.
“What if you needed any medical assistance and the paramedics didn’t know your town well.”
A paramedic commented on Kelsey’s share of the video, agreeing with her advice.
“As a paramedic, thank you for this! Finding houses without numbers is the worst!”
She explains more in this follow up video:
#stitch with @_jesshopehuse thanks Jess for posting! Here it’s a follow up for anybody who wants some additional tips!
Did you know why it’s so critical to have accurate and visible numbers on your house? It’s not just so you get your pizza on time (though no one wants to miss out on a pizza delivery, either).
Has a delivery driver ever talked into your Ring doorbell camera? What did they want? Was it as helpful as this?
Do you think people should offer cheerful advice when they have it, or keep it to themselves? Let us know in the comments!
