I used to work at UPS and I was on the Next-Day and Second-Day sorting belts packing stuff into the route trucks, not so much jamming.

But when I was at Home Depot, it amazes me how our vendors would use UPS to ship vitreous china items (sinks, toilets, etc.). I don't think one ever showed up in 1 piece, but usually hundreds after rolling and tumbling along the sorting belts. And the UPS route driver didn't care that they were delivering a box of broken chunks of china, they just leave it by the door and let the recipient deal with it.

And putting any kind of special instructions (fragile, handle with care, etc) on a package is a sure sign for someone to test just how careful that item is packed when they drop kick it across the facility.

FEDEX does a much better job.

As a side note, when shipping heavy strong items, don't pack the box in news paper or other soft stuff, the heavy item will beat the packing flat and then the box. I've shipped engine crankshafts by rolling them in cardboard like a rug ( 3 to 4 layers ) covering with tape and they arrive just fine.
I probably wouldn't last long, true.

Because I'm not an a-h who will throw someone's box that is clearly marked fragile, and break everything in it.

When I worked at a particular retailer, we would sometimes get large sheets of glass shipped in a box. It was specialty glass, and a 40x60 sheet would retail for over $1000 a sheet, and they came packed 2 sheets to a box. Sometimes we'd get these kids who thought it was "cool" to unload the truck as fast as possible and they'd bust the glass. They got ONE time. Second time they did it, they were FIRED.

People make lots of excuses. At the end of the day, though, you should be accountable for what you do wrong, no matter the reason you did it.
