A mother in Australia has been stunned after a video emerged showing a delivery driver appearing to throw her groceries on the side of the road.
Kate had ordered $100 worth of groceries online from Woolworths and was waiting for it to be delivered to her home in Werribee, Melbourne, on Sunday.
She had used the supermarket giant’s one-hour delivery service, which cost her an extra $15.
His order, which included ingredients for dinners and lunches for the coming week, arrived around 5.30pm that evening, the delivery driver being restless.
The driver first opened the wrong door while retrieving groceries from the car, then backed into a bush as he tried to pull out of the driveway.
Kate said she was a bit shocked, but didn’t think much about the bizarre behavior until a video surfaced in a local Facebook group.

A local man had confronted the driver moments before drop-off after spotting the groceries dumped on the side of a dirt road.
The images show a pile of bags and boxes lying on the ground.
“Man, I’m watching you drop that trash there, what is it?” said the local to the delivery man.
“Shouldn’t it be for a client?” »
The driver hands a bag of Woolworths groceries to the local and insists the groceries were going to a customer.
The resident remains incredulous and stresses that “there is not even a house here”.
‘What are you doing?’ he said. ‘You sneaky asshole. You sneaky fucking dog.
The delivery man then begins to place the groceries in the backseat of the vehicle before apologizing to the man and heading to the driver’s side of the car.
“Don’t tell me sorry, you pig,” the local said.
Watching the video, Kate understood why the delivery man was so agitated when he arrived at her house.
In footage taken by another resident, the man can be seen hunched over the groceries as they lie on the side of the road, just 50 yards from the mother’s home.
“The place where he was throwing the groceries was right in front of my house,” Kate told the Sun Herald.
“He had obviously walked past my driveway, about 50 yards away and was too lazy to turn back, so he decided to dump them.
“(Only) until he was confronted by the passerby, he then loaded the groceries into the car and delivered them to me.”
A Woolworths spokesperson told Daily Mail Australia they were looking into the matter.
“We are concerned about what happened and have taken immediate action to follow up with our delivery partner,” he said.
