Amazon worker delivers to 172 people during Hurricane Ian: “I hate y’all”

An Amazon worker said he had to deliver to 172 people during Hurricane Ian in a video going viral on social media.

Published to the video sharing platform TikTok, an Amazon worker under the username @abnormalpoet shared his story of delivering packages to several homes during the disastrous storm. The popular video has over 52,000 likes and 300,000 views.

“I hate all of y’all right now,” the delivery driver exclaimed, “Y’all knew this hurricane was coming and you still order s**t. I gotta go to 172 of y’all today. I hate y’all. Everything is wet.”

Hurricane Ian made landfall on Florida’s west coast on Wednesday, September 29 as a Category 4 hurricane that reached wind speeds of 150 miles per hour. The storm had a strong and devastating impact on the state and the death toll is “in the hundreds,” says Lee County Sheriff Carmine Marceno.

The storm has since been lessened to a Category 1 storm as it continues its way through part of the United States. South Carolina will be hit by the hurricane early Friday morning.

Amazon said that it has over 8,000 employees in the Tampa area and its priority is that those employees are safe. It has closed more than 80 facilities that are in the path of the storm and the company will be paying employees for their scheduled shifts during the closed period as well as providing help to employees who were affected by Hurricane Ian.

The comment section of the video was flooded with both humor and positive messages.

“No dude – that’s on Amazon – you should be getting paid to say home,” one user exclaimed.

Another said, “That’s why I have a cart full and not ordering until it passes. Yall deserve to be safe too!”

“Wait they still got ya out there in this storm,” one questioned.

The original poster replied, “Because it’s technically not near my area we still had to go even though I mess dodging debris.”

“I’m sorry man! I purposely didn’t order anything b/c I didn’t want to out anyone in danger,” a Tiktok user commented.

“I’m sorry! I thought they would just wait and let y’all off today,” one admitted.

Another said, “Thank you for your service and humor!”

“Not all heroes wear capes, well in this case raincoats. Stay strong my man,” one user wrote.

“Please keep my wife’s package dry jk stay dry and safe brother,” one joked.

“I’m sorry bro. I need my extra batteries,” another echoed.

A user commented, “Sorry bestie my dog needed a rain jacket.”
