For a long time now we've all agreed that tossing a package onto someone's roof was the most unhelpful thing a delivery person could do. But it turns out that there's a worse place for your precious parcel to end up.

Sam Cooke of Manchester, U.K. was the victim this time around, and had the misfortune of being serviced by a Royal Mail carrier who tried just a little too hard to ensure delivery. Putting Cooke's package through his flat's only accessible open window, he dropped it right into the toilet.

That's quite a bull's-eye, not to mention a compelling argument for always keeping your toilet lid closed. But hey, at least the guy seemed embarrassed about it! Cooke followed up to say that the "postie" was coming by to apologize.

With a little luck, they'll become fast friends and have a good laugh about this. Because peeing in a mailbox for revenge could get a bit messy.
