FedEx pacakges found in ravine

A FedEx driver is accused of dumping hundreds of packages into a ravine in Alabama, according to Authorities 

To avoid a supply-chain disruption, you might order your personal necessities and holiday gifts in advance. Eventually, let’s say those packages made it to the final link and were dumped into a nearby ravine by a driver.

Authorities in Alabama are currently looking into a FedEx driver who is accused of throwing out multiple truckloads of packages.

More than 300 to 400 boxes “of assorted sizes” were found in a wooded area on private property in Blount County on Wednesday, according to the Blount County Sheriff’s Office.

Later that day, FedEx dispatched trucks and drivers from all over the South to begin the recovery process for the packages, the company added. Assorted packages were seen in the back of a truck, boxes scattered on the ground, and several trucks parked in the woods.

As of Monday, Sheriff Mark Moon said that the driver had been identified and questioned; he has not publicly named him. While investigators worked to clear up the “debacle,” the media and public were asked to be patient.

“Dumped at least six times,” Moon said in a Tuesday update, making FedEx a victim of six separate theft of property cases.

There are currently about 450 victims, some of whom live in Blount County and others who have been contacted by investigators, he said. This will not be an easy or fast case to close.”

A FedEx spokesperson told NPR in an email that the company has looked into the matter and is working with authorities, and that the person responsible has been terminated from his or her position as a FedEx Ground employee.

“We regret the inconvenience this situation has caused and appreciate our customers’ understanding throughout the package recovery process,” the statement added. “Where possible, recovered packages are being delivered to the intended recipients. In the event of a damaged shipment, we will make every effort to work with the affected shippers to reach a resolution.”

Customers were urged to check their shipments online if they had any questions.

“Sia – Snowman lyrics”

[Verse 1]
Don’t cry, snowman, not in front of me
Who’ll catch your tears if you can’t catch me, darling?
If you can’t catch me, darling
Don’t cry snowman, don’t leave me this way
A puddle of water can’t hold me close, baby
Can’t hold me close, baby

[Chorus]
I want you to know that I’m never leaving
‘Cause I’m Mrs. Snow, ’til death we’ll be freezing
Yeah, you are my home, my home for all seasons
So come on, let’s go
Let’s go below zero and hide from the sun
I’ll love you forever where we’ll have some fun
Yes, let’s hit the North Pole and live happily
Please don’t cry no tears now
It’s Christmas, baby

[Post-Chorus]
My snowman and me, eh
My snowman and me
Baby

[Verse 2]
Don’t cry, snowman, don’t you fear the sun
Who’ll carry me without legs to run, honey?
Without legs to run, honey
Don’t cry, snowman, don’t you shed a tear
Who’ll hear my secrets if you don’t have ears, baby?
If you don’t have ears, baby

[Chorus]
I want you to know that I’m never leaving
‘Cause I’m Mrs. Snow, ’til death we’ll be freezing
Yeah, you are my home, my home for all seasons
So come on, let’s go

I’ll love you forever where we’ll have some fun
Yes, let’s hit the North Pole and live happily
Please don’t cry no tears now
It’s Christmas, baby

[Verse 1: Sia]
All I need is one
One more man is enough
Babe, you got it wrong
Please turn your fears into trust, to trust

[Pre-Chorus: Sia & Labrinth]
Where did love go?
When all is said and done?
Hey now, put your hands in the air
I’ma go through your stuff
Where did love go?
Put the running into run
You’re asking me to stay
But I never met a girl I could trust

[Chorus: Labrinth & Sia]
You’re sayin’ those words like you hate me now (Wo-woah)
Our house is burning when you’re raisin’ hell (Wo-woah)
Here in the ashes, your soul cries out (Ah-ah-ah)
But don’t be afraid of these thunderclouds

[Post-Chorus: Sia & Labrinth]
These thunderclouds, oh no
These thunderclouds, oh no, no

[Verse 2: Labrinth]
All I need is love (Da-dum, dum, dum)
All I need is a word (Da-dum, dum, dum)
All I need is us (Da-dum, dum, dum)
You turn nouns into verbs (Ooh, oh), to verbs (Ooh, oh)

Where did love go?
When all is said and done?
Hey now, put your hands in the air
I’ma go through your stuff

But I never met a man I could trust
Hey, yeah

Our house is burning when you’re raisin’ hell (Wo-woah)

Eminem – Guts Over Fear lyrics

“Eminem – Guts Over Fear lyrics”

[Intro: Eminem]
Feels like a close, it’s coming to
Fuck am I gonna do?
It’s too late to start over
This is the only thing I, thing I know

[Verse 1: Eminem]
Sometimes I feel like all I ever do is
Find different ways to word the same old song
Ever since I came along
From the day the song called “Hi! My Name Is” dropped
Started thinking my name was Fault
‘Cause any time things went wrong
I was the one who they would blame it on
The media made me the equivalent
Of a modern-day Genghis Khan
Tried to argue it was only entertainment, dog
Gangster? Nah, courageous balls
Had to change my style, they said I’m way too soft
And I sound like AZ and Nas, out came the claws
And the fangs been out since then
But up until the instant that I went against it
It was ingrained in me
That I wouldn’t amount to a shit stain, I thought
No wonder I had to unlearn everything my brain was taught
“Do I really belong in this game?”, I pondered
I just wanna play my part
Should I make waves or not?
So back and forth in my brain the tug of war wages on
And I don’t wanna seem ungrateful
Or disrespect the art form I was raised upon
But sometimes you gotta take a loss
And have people rub it in your face
Before you get made pissed off
And keep plugging, it’s your only outlet
And your only outfit, so you know they gonna talk about it
Better find a way to counter it quick and make it… ah
Feel like I’ve already said this a kabillion 80 times
How many times can I say the same thing
Different ways that rhyme?
What I really wanna say is, if there’s anyone else that can relate to my story, bet you feel the same way I felt
When I was in the same place you are, when I was afraid to—

[Pre-Chorus: Sia, Eminem]
I was a, afraid to make a single sound
Afraid I would never find a way out, out, out
Afraid I’d never be found (My dreams)
I didn’t wanna go another round (Yeah)
An angry man’s power will shut you up (Agh!)
Trip wires fill this house with tip-toed love
Run out of excuses for everyone
So here I am and I will not run (Yeah)

[Chorus: Sia]
Guts over fear (The time is near)
Guts over fear (Might shed a tear)
For all the times I let you push me round
I let you keep me down (Now I got)
Guts over fear, guts over fear

[Bridge: Eminem]
Feels like a close, it’s coming to
Fuck am I gonna do?
It’s too late to start over
This is the only thing I, thing I know

[Verse 2: Eminem]
I know what it was like, I was there once
Single parents, hate your appearance
As you struggle to find your place in this world
And the pain spawns all the anger on
But it wasn’t ’til I put the pain in song
Learned who to aim it on that I made a spark
Started to spit harder shit
Learned how to harness it while the reins were off
And there was a lot of bizarre shit, but the crazy part
Was soon as I stopped saying I gave a fuck
Haters started to appreciate my art
And it just breaks my heart to look at all the pain I caused
But what am I gonna do when the rage is gone
And the lights go out in that trailer park? Oh
And the window is closing and there’s nowhere else that I can go with flows and I’m frozen
‘Cause there’s no more emotion for me to pull from
Just a bunch of playful songs that I make for fun
So, to the break of dawn, here I go recycling the same old song
But I’d rather make “Not Afraid 2”
Than make another motherfucking “We Made You,” ah
Now, I don’t wanna seem indulgent
When I discuss my lows and my highs
My demise and my uprise, pray to God
I just open enough eyes later on
And gave you the supplies and the tools
To hopefully use that’ll make you strong
Enough to lift yourself up, when you feel like I felt
‘Cause I can’t explain to y’all how dang exhausted my legs felt
Just having to balance my dang self
When on eggshells, I was made to walk
But thank you, Ma, ‘cause that gave me the
Strength to cause Shady-mania, so when they empty that stadium
Least I made it out of that house
And found a place in this world when the day was done
So this is for every kid who all’s they ever did
Was dreamt of one day just getting accepted
I represent him or her, anyone similar
You are the reason that I made this song
And everything you’re scared to say
Don’t be afraid to say no more
From this day forward, just let them a-holes talk
Take it with a grain of salt—and eat their fucking faces off!
The legend of the angry blonde
Lives on through you when I’m gone, and to think I was a—

[Pre-Chorus: Sia, Eminem]
I was a, afraid to make a single sound
Afraid I would never find a way out, out, out
Afraid I’d never be found (My dreams)
I didn’t wanna go another round (Yeah)
An angry man’s power will shut you up (Agh!)
Trip wires fill this house with tip-toed love
Run out of excuses for everyone
So here I am and I will not run (Yeah)

[Chorus: Sia]
Guts over fear (The time is near)
Guts over fear (Might shed a tear)
For all the times I let you push me round
I let you keep me down (Now I got)
Guts over fear, guts over fear
