An Australia Post worker has been slammed as ‘lazy’ after he was caught on camera dropping off a package behind a letter box instead of walking a few extra steps to the front door.
Adrian Dewick was waiting for the parcel to be delivered to his home, south-west of Perth, in Western Australia, on Friday.
He had instructed the postal worker to leave the delivery in a safe place if he wasn’t home at the time.
CCTV footage from his house showed the courier pull into the driveway before stepping out of the van with the package.

The postal worker makes a beeline for the letter box before throwing it down on the ground and leaving.
Mr Dewick said if the courier had just walked a few extra steps and knocked on the front door he would have noticed someone was at home.
‘I heard kids out the front and went to check the cameras and saw the package behind my post box,’ he said.
Mr Dewick said he feared the parcel could have been stolen because of where it was placed by the delivery driver.
‘I went out just as one of the kids was looking at grabbing my package,’ he said.
He has since uploaded footage of the delivery to Facebook where social media users were quick to criticise the drop-off.
‘Love how they call that a safe place,’ one person commented.
Another person added: ‘Yeah that should be reported to Australia Post, that isn’t a safe drop as its visible from the street.’

Mr Dewick said he has made a complaint to the Australia Post and is waiting for a response.
The national courier details on its website a number of places it considers to be safe for postal workers to leave a package.
‘Safe places are those that are hidden on your premises, at the front door/porch, in your mailbox (if it fits), under the carport/verandah or by the side gate,’ the website reads.
