A MAN was furious after Amazon sent him a VERY embarassing parcel twice.
Andrew Sharpe got the fright of his life after opening the first delivery thinking it was a food hamper.
However, when he had a rummage inside he found it was packed to the brim with sex toys.
Five days later, a second package, filled with even more x-rated goods, arrived.
But this time Andrew happened to open it front of his shocked girlfriend.
Bewildered Andrew, 57, told The Sun: “I couldn’t believe it. It was really X-rated stuff.

The selection of sensual aids – some of which were remote controlled and vibrating – came to a total value of over £200.
Andrew complained through the website’s online chat service after the first box came on December 8 and the second arrived on the 13th.
Employees suggested Andrew was welcome to keep his new toys, donate them to charity or contact the police to take it further.
Amazon now believes he fell victim to "brushing" – where sellers send out unsolicited orders to random addresses to boost sales and post fake glowing reviews.
A Which? survey estimates more than a million British households have been targeted by the scam often originating in China.
Former area manager Andrew, of Gillingham, Kent, added: “For it to happen once was bad enough but twice is out of order.
I couldn’t believe it. It was really X-rated stuff.
“I hadn’t ordered anything from Amazon for seven months so it came as a real surprise. And I’m never going to buy anything from there again after this.
