Lynn Staffieri, from Magnolia, Delaware, was left baffled after seeing an Amazon delivery driver sprint away from her home on her family’s security camera.

She was unaware that her son Jacob, 13, had left instructions for the driver to knock on the door three times, ‘scream abracadabra as loud as you can and run super fast away’.

The driver shouts the magical phrase before sprinting away from the house, leaping over a bucket while she runs back to her van.

The driver plays along and adheres to all of Jacob’s instructions – including a loud scream as she sprints away.

But the hilarious moment went unnoticed for months until Lynn, 47, received a notification on her phone, where she saw a delivery driver suddenly running away from her house.

Thinking the driver had been scared by a dog, Lynn went home to check the original footage with sound.

As she was watching the security video, Jacob, who was standing nearby, suddenly started laughing.

Lynn said: ‘I would hope people understand that this was not meant in a malicious way at all, and hopefully the driver would understand that it was a child who put those instructions in there even though he shouldn’t have.

‘I think she had a good time with it and understood that it was a child.

‘She’s a good sport. Even though we’re all stuck in these times that we are right now, we can still have some fun and enjoy what we do.

‘Maybe not take ourselves so seriously and enjoy what we can.’

Thousands of people have praised the driver for her commitment to her job, even suggesting that she deserved a raise and a promotion for her hilarious actions. 

Lynn finally found the hilarious footage on June 15, months after her son’s amusing prank.
