An Iowa mother and daughter couldn’t stop giggling at two delivery men who battled to get a package up a slick neighborhood street without slipping.  

Mehgan Diefenderfer of Iowa City, captured the amusing moment with her five-year-old child on January 15 before it went viral on Facebook. 

Using her cell phone, Diefenderfer records a poor delivery man slowly inching his way towards a large package sitting on the icy street.  

When the delivery man finally reaches the package, he gives it a push that sends the package a few inches forward and him about a foot back.

‘That’s not funny. Don’t laugh,’ the young child says, while Diefenderfer giggles from behind the camera.

As if walking on a tightrope, the delivery man extends his arms to the side, edges his way towards the box and tries again.

The young child can’t help but laugh at the second attempt.  

‘A delivery truck slid down our ally to deliver a huge box to our neighbors. It was so icy out, yet they still got the damn package delivered. My poor 5-year-old was not impressed with me laughing at them,’ she told ViralHog.  

Suddenly, a second delivery man emerges from the truck and narrowly reaches the sitting package before slipping to the ground.

A second delivery man emerged from the truck and attempted to help his colleague before he slipped on the ice 

Eventually, the second delivery man tries a new method and begins to simultaneously push the package while crawling 

In a moment of stubbornness, he begins to simultaneously crawl and push the package to little effect. 

‘He’s like Bambi on ice,’ Diefenderfer says, full out laughing. 

Eventually, the package is delivered to the expectant owners and the second delivery man opts to knee slide back to the truck. The first delivery man waddles behind him.   

A neighbor gifted the two delivery men with a bag of ice for their tires and Diefenderfer’s children made them hot chocolate 

Diefenderfer says: ‘Dude, you didn’t get paid enough today.’

The video ends with a neighbor offering the two men a a bag of salt to put under their tires, which was delivered by sliding the bag down down the hill on the ice.  

Diefenderfer reveals that wasn’t the only gift the two delivery men received for their efforts.

She said: ‘The kids really felt bad for the delivery men and made hot cocoa for them.’

The video has gone viral and garnered more than 23,000 views.
