Amazon Worker Spotted Making Deliveries Despite 'Literal Tornado' In Viral Vid

How far would your delivery driver go for you?

Well, my delivery driver would leave my parcel in a place where it's easy to see so porch pirates could easily pick it off.

But a slightly more dedicated delivery worker recently went viral on TikTok.

Amazon is famous for fast deliveries.

There's this old saying, "Neither snow nor rain nor heat nor gloom of night stays these couriers from the swift completion of their appointed rounds."

It's always been associated with the U.S. Postal Service, but here, it could easily apply to Amazon.

A TikToker shared this dramatic video.

The short-and-sweet video, uploaded by TikToker @ajp18588, shows some ominous weather developing in their neighborhood. If you think a little bit of tornadic activity is going to stop Amazon from getting packages delivered, think again.

Just Tornado Alley things.

Anyone who's spent their summers in the midwest or southern states probably recognizes that kind of weather as being associated with tornadoes. Whether one forms or not, those dark clouds will send people scurrying for cover.

The big reveal.

The TikTok video shows the angry clouds, then dramatically pans to the left and zooms in on an Amazon delivery driver zipping along the street, directly into the direction of the bad weather, to get packages delivered.

The hustle is real.

Amazon has come under fire for how their workers are treated, so many comments asked whether the driver would be allowed to suspend their route even if their life was in imminent danger. I can't imagine any job paying well enough to justify risking your life.

All's well that ends well.

While the weather looked ugly, it doesn't appear that a tornado did actually form. What we can be certain of is that the driver completed their route as planned, with no tornado-related disruptions to report.

It's only a few seconds long and definitely worth a watch, so be sure to check it out below.
