A Hermes delivery driver has claimed he made a delivery attempt of a customer’s parcel by sharing a photo of himself wearing slippers and watching TV on a sofa.
Thomas Gent, 30, was shocked when he received an email notification on Thursday of the brazen photograph.
He had been waiting on craft materials to arrive at his home in Preston, Lancashire, when he received a notification saying his delivery had been attempted.
But when he looked at the email notification, Thomas couldn’t believe his eyes when the ‘proof’ of attempted delivery showed the driver relaxing in a living room.
The ‘delivery attempt photo’ shows the driver sitting down with his legs up and wearing a pair of grey slippers with the television on.

A box of Quality Street and wrappers are shown on the glass table to the right hand side of the employee.
Thomas claims that he was at home all day and that no delivery was attempted.
He posted a screenshot of his delivery attempt notification to Facebook on Thursday with the caption: ‘How’s this for a delivery attempt. Sat on his a*** at home’.
The screenshot of Hermes notification read: ‘Your local courier tried to deliver your Hermes parcel today but you weren’t in. We tried to deliver your parcel today but you weren’t in.
‘There wasn’t a safe place to leave your parcel so we’ll try again and contact you on Fri Sep 17 2021 with more information.’
Thomas’ post now has just under 100 likes and dozens of comments from viewers who were shocked by the brazen nature of the driver.

Speaking today, Thomas said: ‘It made me laugh because it’s about standard for Hermes.
‘It’s hilarious the driver has the nerve to actually sit at home and take a picture of it too.
‘I was in all day, there was no delivery attempt, no card left or anything.
‘It was delivered on the Friday, however it was left at the door, nobody knocked and it was just left there.
‘I was angry as I did need the delivery ASAP, however you have to find these things funny so I saw the funny side.’
Thomas posted the picture on Facebook and racked up dozens of comments from outraged social media users.
One wrote: ‘Blimey! Bold as brass!’
And another said: “At least it’s not your front room whilst you were out.’
Hermes has been contacted for comment.
