Amazon delivery driver blows up orders during Hurricane Ian: ‘I hate you all’

An Amazon delivery driver in Florida has jokingly berated customers who ordered packages as Hurricane Ian approached the state this week.

The Amazon delivery driver, known as @abnormalpoet on TikTok, said “I hate you” while delivering packages to more than 170 customers in Florida on Wednesday.

“You all knew this hurricane was coming and you’re still ordering sh*t,” he said in a video from his Amazon delivery truck. “I have to go to 172 of you today.”

The video went viral on TikTok with more than 300,000 views since it was uploaded just as Hurricane Ian made landfall in southwest Florida, with devastating effects on coastal areas.

On TikTok, many users praised the Amazon delivery driver for working in wind and rain — and while many had evacuated their homes or boarded up businesses and properties.

“I’m sorry, man! I purposely didn’t order anything because I didn’t want to put anyone out in danger,” one user said in the comments.

“As someone who has a package for delivery today, I’m sorry!!! However, in my defense, I ordered it days ago,” wrote another user.

The Amazon employee said in the comments to his video that because the hurricane didn’t directly hit his part of Florida, he continued to work – albeit in difficult conditions.

He added that he was “just scolding” and that he forgave the 172 customers who had orders on Wednesday.

“Not all heroes wear cloaks, in this case raincoats. Stay strong man,” wrote a third TikTok user.

Amazon this week closed some of its facilities in the state, which CNBC reported are expected to reopen after Friday. This was believed to include warehouses in Orlando and Tampa.

The company announced this message search that it closed 80 facilities that were in the direct path of the storm and that it had about 8,000 employees in Tampa, which did not feel the full force of the tropical storm.

“We are closely monitoring the path of Hurricane Ian and are making adjustments to our operations to keep our employees and those who ship for us safe,” said an Amazon spokesman Richard Rocha.

The Independent has reached out to Amazon for comment.

Hurricane Ian has been described as possibly the deadliest storm to hit Florida as a recovery operation began, with at least 20 reported (but unconfirmed) deaths, a disaster declaration and millions still without power.

Ian made landfall in Lee County as a Category 4 hurricane with winds of 155 miles per hour before being downgraded to a tropical storm over central Florida and moving towards the Carolinas, where it is likely to make another hurricane strike Friday. This time as a category 1 storm.
