Amazon delivery driver goes viral for unbelievable reaction to customer's gift: 'Get out of here!'
An Amazon delivery driver is going viral after a customer's gift left him screaming in celebration.
Kathy Ouma of Middletown, Del., leaves treats outside of her home every year with the hopes of providing refreshments to the workers who deliver packages to her door during the holiday season. But this year, her act of kindness drew at least one extraordinary reaction.
According to a Facebook post she shared Monday, Ouma placed a box of snacks — including water bottles, sodas, Oreos and Nutter Butters — next to her front door. She left a note along with the presents, addressed to UPS, USPS, Amazon and FedEx drivers.
"Please take some goodies to enjoy on your route. Thank you for making holiday shopping easy," Ouma's note read.
The treats seemed to have a massive effect on one Amazon worker, who Ouma later identified as Karim Earl Reed III. Security camera footage from Ouma's doorstep shows Reed's genuine, heartwarming reaction to the goodies, which quickly became a viral sensation.
"Oh, this is nice!" Reed shouts as he notices the snacks. "Ah, they got some goodies! Wow! Oh, this is sweet! Oh, wow, get out of here!"
Reed then takes a few bags of food and water bottle, all while continuously praising the kindness of the gift. He can even be heard saying, "This is so nice" to himself again as he walks away.
The video captured the internet's heart immediately, earning close to 10 million views as of Thursday afternoon. Facebook users also weighed in with countless comments, praising both Ouma's kindness and Reed's charming reaction.
"I’ve watched it 100 times and my heart could explode!" one user wrote.
"This is great. So thoughtful of you and he clearly appreciated your generosity from those moves!" another added.
Ouma shared her appreciation as well, updating her original post to tell Reed he is "bringing millions of people joy."
