AN ONLINE shopper has been shocked by a delivery driver’s hopeless attempt to hide her bulky parcel under a doormat.
The woman, 28, was told her Sports Direct package had been stored in a ‘secure’ location but the bungling Hermes courier had just left it under the mat outside her flat in Liverpool.

Bizarre images show the sizeable package was clearly visible as it created a large lump in the mat.
The woman, who asked not to be named, said: “This service was a little more royal fail than Royal Mail – even if it was delivered by Hermes.
“I had come home from the pub when I spotted the parcel, and at first I thought my eyes were playing tricks on me.
“But no – the courier apparently really did think ‘hiding’ the package under the mat like that, leaving it clearly visible to anyone wandering past, was acceptable.

“At the time I laughed to myself but the next day I was quite annoyed anyone in the building could have spotted it.
“I’ve heard bizarre tales about couriers before, but this really was the good, the bad and the rug-ly.”
The shopper, who works in the media, has not made a formal complaint to Hermes but she shared the images on social media.
She added: “The worst thing was the reason why the parcel was so bulky was because Sports Direct had given me a free giant mug with my order.

“I didn’t even want the mug, so clearly it was me who got mugged off in the end.”
A spokesman for Hermes said: “We apologise for the inconvenience.
“We will speak to the courier to ensure this does not happen again.”
