What's more frustrating than getting a "sorry we missed you" slip instead of a package on your doorstep?

One woman found out when she was literally trapped in her house by an Amazon box.


TikTok user @izzybrooke had her day ruined thanks to an Amazon delivery.

Prepared to have a relaxing day at the nail salon, the woman quickly found out that leaving her house wasn't an option.

In the series of videos, @izzybrooke narrated her ordeal.

"When all you want is to go get your nails done, but you can't because Amazon put a package outside your door and you can't get out."

She began trying different methods to open the door.

"Im gonna try to get myself out because Amazon locked me in."

First, she opened the door's window.


But ultimately it was for nothing, because she couldn't remove the screen covering.

"I can't get the ****ing screen open I'm just not happy."


"Just like seriously Amazon, what the ****!"

Finally, she thought about jamming something between the door to push the package away.

Her tool of choice: a rubber spatula.


"This will work I guess."


Thankfully, it worked!


The video quickly became popular on TikTok and Youtube, and @izzybrook even made the news!



Apparently, other people have been trapped by delivery boxes too.



Thankfully, there's an easy way to avoid this issue - just leave detailed delivery instructions.


It's not the most ideal way to receive a package, but at least it actually arrived!

There's something seeing a person litter that drives me up the wall. I remember being a kid and being explicitly told to hold on to my trash and not just throw it in the street. As a kid, I distinctly remember being made fun of for not just throwing the bag of chips I'd just eaten or an empty soda bottle into the gutter.

I can't imagine doing that. Why?! We truly treat this planet as if we have somewhere else to go.

When you're in the market for a slew of very specific facts that all fall under the same general theme, the internet really delivers.

Forget streamlined public health capabilities and revolutionized human communication, the true beauty of the internet is all the random, barely useful information you can find when a bunch odd people decide to assemble and swap info.

Working in a doctor's office means helping people when they're at their lowest. Sometimes, that leads to wonderful moments when the patient is thankful for all the advice and care you provided. Other times, it means taking something out of someone's bum.

Turns out, that second one happens a lot more than you might think.

I love movies. The cinema has long been a savior of mine and has given me some of my greatest inspirations. But being an avid film watcher has also made me quite the critic. I can always tell when a movie is worth the money to see in theaters or wait until it's on basic cable with commercials. The signs of mediocrity abound, and sometimes they aren't that difficult to spot.

Redditor u/fjv08kl wanted to know what is obvious about mediocre cinema by asking.... What are some subtle 'red flags' that tell you a movie is not worth watching?
