Amazon Delivery Driver Drops Off a Bag of Poop on Family's Driveway

Opening Argument

A man in east London was expecting a package from Amazon but the special delivery on his driveway was not what he’d ordered. After finding a bag filled with poop and Amazon calling cards, a quick check of CCTV cameras indicated that a delivery driver for the e-commerce giant was responsible.

I will not even to attempt to debate the reason why the driver did it, as he was obviously mentally disturbed.  The debate is about does the "victim" have a merit to sue Amazon or will this get settled by Amazon offering the man some gift cards and prime membership? It seems that the man is already prepping for a potential lawsuit, claiming that the poop coul have killed him if drver had Hep C, but of course that is a total BS.

So I will take a side in this outrageous debate that there is no merit for a law suit and some amazon gift cards will be a fair settlement. Persuade me otherwise.

  1. Lawsuit?

    1. Yes - financial damages as Amazon has deep pockets
    2. No - some amazon gift cards

  • @agsr, anyone can suit anyone for anything. This case is a PR nightmare for Amazon.  Why didn't Amazon vet their drivers for mental issues?  The poop vicitm will be well advised by some slimy lawyer to sue for damages (his son wintesses this horrific incident and he was traumatized for fear of his life).  It doesn't matter, Amazon will not want to have it drag out and will likely do a quite settlement.

    @ChangeMyView, Amazon can't set a precedent for settling on silly lawsuits like this or they will espose themselves for further frivolous lawsuits.

    Financial assistance to the family for legal damage is proper. Amazon can spare a couple of thousands for the family.

    @walterba, it's not a question of Amazon sparing a few thosands (and I doubt the settlement will be just a few). It is more about risk of setting a precedent. I suggest a free prime membership and a nice gift card.

  • I believe that Amazon should offer the family a gift card and a lifetime membership for Peime instead of paying a cash compensation to the family and setting a ordinary for that payment.
  • Courts are . If someone sue you, kill him; burn his building and escape to another country and tell them you are stupid and insane and you cant speak.
  • @yuno44907 , please don't use foul language and make accurate arguments.
