A man's hilarious response to his Hermes delivery driver's proof of delivery snap has left people online "cackling".
When carrying out deliveries, Hermes takes photos to show customers where they have left the delivery.
This also helps to prove whether or not items have been delivered, reports Daily Star.
So when a Hermes driver caught Twitter user Ryan just as he'd arrived home, they handed over the parcel and took a quick snapshot.
But Ryan appeared to be the main focus of this driver's particular drop-off as it captured him opening his front door.
Ryan shared the picture to Twitter and it had other users in stitches as the post went viral.
