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!

If you've never seen the comedy classic, "Monty Python and the Holy Grail," there is a scene where Arthur, King of the Britons, encounters a black knight guarding a bridge. Arthur quickly figures out the stalwart knight will not let him pass, so the two do battle, with the king severely injuring his enemy in the process.

He cuts off all his arms and legs.

Yet the black knight persists, insisting his injuries are, "but a scratch."

Turns out this happens to people in real life, not so much with swords and knights, but with can openers and ice skates.

We are currently in a market that favors workers over employers – many workers feel empowered to seek out different positions and have reevaluated what they want in their careers amid the financial fallout of the COVID-19 pandemic.

Many workers left their jobs in search of greener pastures because they were ready for a change, and others were more than happy to leave behind toxic workplaces that only burned them out.

As you can imagine, they've become rather adept at noticing red flags during the interview process and beyond.

People shared their thoughts with us after Redditor taylortaylortaylorrr asked the online community,

"What is a red flag from an employer that people might not immediately recognize as a red flag?"

Computers are not everyone's strong suit. Generation z is now reaching adulthood, and they've had computers, smart phones, and iPads since birth.

For anyone in an older generation, this wasn't the case. Computers weren't even advertised for the home until the Superbowl of 1984, and even then it was priced at $2,500.

Come the turn of the 21st century, computers are a staple in the home, but the advancements in the last two decades have left some people scrambling to keep up. Things that might seem basic to some are shockingly uncommon to others.
