Delivery drivers are one such demographic who not only have to trek outdoors during the hottest times of the day, but they've got to lug around packages while doing so. NBC News reported that between 2015 and 2018, there were 100 UPS workers alone who fainted due to heat exhaustion while they were working a summer shift.

The video, which was reposted to the @memezar TikTok account, shows an Amazon delivery driver walking in the backyard of a house, and it appears that they read a note on the door.

Another overlay in the video reads: "Bro let his intrusive thoughts win"

The clip shows the driver, after reading the note, walking up to the diving board in the backyard of the home and launching himself directly into the pool, fully clothed.

One commenter who saw the video responded that they would've probably done the same thing as the driver, given how hot they can get while performing deliveries during the summer months: "as a delivery driver myself, during this heat we will jump into a pool, no hesitation if allowed"

Another said that the driver was probably extremely grateful for the offer, as was evident in the video: his fervor in jumping into the pool was palpable: "You are an angel in his eyes. It's so hot rn I know he was thankful."

Someone else joked that the temperature outside was probably so bad, his clothes must've dried by the time he made it back into his truck: "It’s so hot he was dry before he got to the truck"

While another made a quip as to what the driver may've been thinking as he vaulted himself from the diving board and directly into the cool water: "'Finally a bathroom break not inside a bottle'"

There have been other instances of delivery driver customers coming up with considerate ways to help outdoor workers beat the heat: some leave out coolers filled with water and beverages for them to enjoy while they're performing deliveries.

Have you ever worked delivery during summer time? If you got an offer to jump into someone's pool while you were on shift, would you take it? Or would you much rather just grab a cold beverage and maybe an ice cube to rub on your face?
