The wording of the message is on point. I'm glad the driver isn't losing his job, and is being retrained, perhaps to be more respectful of other human beings and their property. And more importantly, Fedex is taking responsibility for the potentially damaged delivery.

That said, Mr. Thornton's recital comes across as though he's communicating points during a corporate conference.
It's insincere. Actions speak louder than words, but this issue was only being addressed because a video went viral, and that's what Mr. Thornton is communicating.

I'm sure he'd be upset if his own deliveries were damaged, and it would have been better if he expressed that in his demeanor. Instead, he's just doing his job and placating the public in a pretty poor manner.

Fuck the sales bullshit he pushes in there; Our high standards, your precious delivery, using this as a learning experience. Fuck that, he should have come out like "yeah we hired a dickhead, our bad, some people are dickheads"... Because in reality the sales bullshit filters down through the ranks and I guarantee you ask other delivery drivers whether or not they think each package is special (without putting their job at risk) they'll say fuckno. Sales patter, almost looked political in his delivery, didn't even seem shocked by the behaviour. Fuck them.
