A courier delivers 2 sofas blocking the front door: mother and son are trapped for two days
It might seem absurd, but in Scotland, a single mother, Sarah Miller, was "trapped" in her own home, along with her 7-year-old son, due to two huge sofas being delivered to the front door of her house by a courier. The man, frightened of possible contact with the family due to the Coronavirus epidemic, refused to enter the house and simply left the two huge Chesterfield sofas at the entrance to Sarah Miller's home. The poor woman was literally trapped for a few days with her son and was forced to order pizza from home to feed her son, pizza that was delivered straight through the window.
Sarah Miller, a 44-year-old single mom, will certainly never choose the same delivery company again after this bad experience. Once he arrived, the courier said he couldn't go any further than the threshold of the front door, due to the Covid-19 restrictions. Sarah thought that if she and her son had moved into another room, the man could have proceeded with the delivery normally and brought the sofas to their rightful place. Unfortunately, this was not the case and the man left the two sofas stacked one on top of the other, right in the entrance to the house, at the bottom of the stairs.
Sarah, who had just split up with her ex-husband, had to call him for help. Together, however, they only managed to move one sofa; for the second one, they had to wait for help from their eldest son, aged 23. Meantime. Sarah was unable to leave the house and had to order pizza delivery to feed both her and her 7-year-old son, Joel. The pizza delivery was made through the kitchen window. Only on the second day was Jack Ryan, the couple's eldest son, able to intervene to resolve the situation. With his assistance they managed to transport the sofa to its destination and free the main entrance to the house.
The delivery company didn't respond to Sarah's complaints until she threatened to turn to the newspapers. At that point, the company officially apologized for the incident and offered the woman compensation for the price of both sofas.
An absurd story that, fortunately, was resolved with a happy ending.
