How not to respond to a YouTube video

The original video had only a few thousand views, unless I didn’t find it. The response is over a million views.

Unless the packages in question were fragile, what she was doing is no different from what goes on in package delivery centers routinely. It’s not pretty, but there is no evidence of damage.

The real issue is this shipper seems to be shipping 100s of packages a day from a location on a busy street in a big city and not making an effort to aggregate them into bigger containers.

The video of a black VP of minority human relations reassured me that the black woman driver “is no longer working for FedEx”

If you think about that with critical thinking, he is NOT saying she was fired, and definitely not reassuring me they have solved any aspect of this “problem”

    This one has 1.3 million views. The gothamist website generated a lot of the views and now has 4 stories on this, including an opinion piece from the former NYT ethicist about how they reported it….. http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=Aq_jkUVgrc0

      Through the magic of Google Earth, this video was taken outside 22 E 44th street in Manhattan – it’s a block away from Grand Central station. It’s rush hour, time is running out to get back to the airport.

      You can briefly see the Christian Science Reading Room which pins down the location, although the pavement markings have changed recently

      22 E 44th is an office building, so don’t conclude that the shipper is the Christian Science book store, although those boxes do look like book boxes.

      For those of us complaining about cameras everywhere recording everything, this is a good case. We don’t know who shot the video or why, there is no evidence of damage, the guy representing the customer (apparently security) says nothing. Let’s go to where you work and plaster what you do on the Internet.
