ASOS shopper who spent two hours searching for her parcel finally found it on the ROOF – and had to fetch it with a ladder
- Molly, from the Midlands, came home to find parcel had been left in ‘safe place’
- ASOS-branded bag was lying around a foot from edge of corrugated iron roof
- Unable to get it down by herself, she enlisted help of dad Jim who used a ladder
- Shared pic of the parcel yesterday, tagging ASOS’s Here to Help Twitter account
If you’re out when the postman arrives, usually they’ll leave a note letting you know your parcel is in your nominated ‘safe place’.
But one delivery driver clearly thought the most secure spot to leave a package was where no one could possibly reach it – on the roof.
ASOS customer Molly, from the Midlands, was stunned yesterday to discover her order had been flung on top of the corrugated iron structure at her home.
After spending two hours hunting for it she spied it in the unconvential ‘safe place’ and enlisted the help of dad Jim, who had to track down a ladder from their neighbour for the job.

Baffled Molly took to Twitter to inform ASOS about the unusual incident, tweeting the brand’s Here to Help account.
Clearly having seen the funny side, she wrote: ‘Mate WTF we’ve fully just had to get a ladder to get my parcel down from the roof,’ followed by three crying laughing emojis.
Her tweet notched up 13 likes and clearly tickled fellow Twitter users. One commented: ‘I’m crying Hahahahahahah.’
Molly added: ‘Jim was nearly crying as well tryna get it down (sic),’ to which her friend joked: ‘ASOS are in for a treat when Jim gets on the phone.’
She told FEMAIL: ‘It was so crazy, the delivery drivers in our local area are mad, they always just chuck the parcels I think!

‘It was my mum’s birthday presents, it took us two hours to find it as the note said it was left in a safe place, then about an hour to get a ladder from a neighbour and get it down!’
FEMAIL has reached out to ASOS for comment.
It’s not the first time a delivery driver has chosen an unconventional method to drop off parcels.

In December last year a Yodel worker was caught on camera throwing a parcel 50ft across a garden because he couldn’t be bothered to go through an open gate.
Neil Adams, from Hertfordshire, captured the shocking scene on a security camera attached to his house.
The package, which contained a Nike hoodie Neil bought for his daughter, hit the wall of the house with force and slid to the ground before the delivery man took off in his van.
In April an Amazon delivery driver was caught on video stealing building materials from a house where he had dropped a package off moments earlier.
Unaware his every move was being filmed by a CCTV camera, the driver walked into a driveway carrying a small package and dropped it on the doorstep.
He hurried away from the home in Tamworth, Staffordshire, only to return less than a minute later to steal two spirits levels and a pack of bolts.
