Surprises in the mail are always fun – except when it’s a vial of human blood.
Jane Begakis claimed she ordered a leather chair from Amazon, but found a disturbing addition to the package when she took it out of the box. Inside the box, along with the chair, was the tube of blood.
“If I told you that the leather chair I ordered from Amazon came packaged with a blood collection tube…loaded, would you believe me?” She claimed in a post on Twitter,
“Because I’m lost for – – – words.”
Begakis later updated followers on his blood saga, alleging that he initially heard from Amazon but reportedly never heard from them again.
Since the video was initially tweeted, Begakis’s tweet has been retweeted more than 3,500 times and topped 48,800 likes.

“I’m as terrified as I am confused,” the woman continued, including a short video of the vial and the box. She added, “I’m taking nine showers in fear.”

“I’m so profoundly unprepared [for] this type of chaos,” she said in a reply to another Twitter user.
In a later tweet, Begakis shared an email she received from Amazon, apologizing for the delivery and offering a $156.59 refund for the chair and a $100 gift card.
In the email, Amazon said:
“First and foremost, I’m truly sorry for your experience! I can certainly understand the concern of receiving bodily fluids in your package. I’ve made sure the seller has been reported, and all appropriate actions have been taken to prevent this from happening again in the future.”
