Thanks for nothing, Amazon! Delivery guy accidentally traps a woman in her home by leaving package wedged between her door and brick wall

  • Student Izzy Rivkind spent more than an hour trapped in her home on January 12
  • The UMass student was home alone in Ardmore, Pennsylvania, when an Amazon delivery package blocked off her door and left her unable to leave
  • Rivkind can be heard joking ‘Thanks, Obama’ as she tries to escape
  • She is unable to open the screen door window to try and move the package
  • Rivkind eventually uses a kitchen spatula to push the package off the front step and can finally leave her home to get her nails done 

A woman in Pennsylvania was trapped in her home for more than an hour last January after an Amazon delivery driver left a large package blocking her door. 

In a hilarious video, student Izzy Rivkind offers commentary on the escape from her own house with the aid of a kitchen spatula after the heavy package prevented her from opening her own front door. 

‘Thanks, Obama,’ Rivkind, from Ardmore, Pennsylvania, shouts at the start of the video as she begins to plan her escape.

After more than an hour, Rivkind, a student at UMass Amherst, was able to get out to get her nails done but not until her Amazon package gets a bit of a bashing. 

‘I ordered a package from amazon. It came while I was home alone. When I was about to leave, I tried to open the screen door, which opens outward,’ she said. 

‘To my surprise, the door was stuck, and wouldn’t open more than 3 inches because the package was stuck between these bricks and the door.’

The video shows Rivkind, who appears to take her home imprisonment pretty well, trying to open her door to get out but not being able to budge the large Amazon package placed right in front.

While the first door opens inward, the screen door gets caught on the package as she tries to leave and a frustrated Rivkind can be heard blaming President Barack Obama and giving the middle finger. 

‘Seriously Amazon, what the f–k?’ she adds.  

In her TikTok video posted on January 12, 2020, Rivkind documents her eventual escape, trying to edge the window of the screen door open before running to her kitchen to find some makeshift escape tools.

‘I was stuck for almost an hour trying to get out. I ended up using a spatula after the window on the screen door wouldn’t open,’ she said.

‘I finally got the package to move. 

‘I recorded the whole process on tiktok, and it ended up getting over 126,000 views and 11.6k likes and counting,’ the woman added.
