Friday Fictioneers — Package Delivery Scheme

59D2C44F-02E4-4737-9D47-03DFC845800E Harold placed the package inside one of the cages in his basement, locked the gate, and walked away. I shoulda thought of this before, he thought.

His wife was in the kitchen when Harold came up from the basement. “How was your first day?” she asked.

“Great,” Harold said, sitting down at the table. “I drive around dropping off packages people ordered on line. It’s easy and there are great perks.”

Harold figured he’d take home just one package a day of the several dozen on his route, and sell it on eBay. No one will notice one undelivered package.

    This is probably a common practice, along with stealing packages from the front door.

    They have pretty strict tracking on drivers these days, I’m not sure he has thought this through well enough!

    I think he’s going to have a short career. One package may not be noticed, but one EVERY day will be noticed before long. Harold not the brightest star in the heavens 🙂
