On Wednesday morning, Sandra and Al Alverson of Houston, Tex., received an email from FedEx with good news: Their new iPad Mini had been delivered, according to KHOU. Hooray for the holidays! Hooray for good cheer!

Only one problem: It was nowhere to be found. Luckily, the Alversons have an elaborate DVR recording system set up for just such an occasion.

Ends up, as the above YouTube footage shows, a temporary, seasonal worker hired by UPS, who delivered a separate package later that day, decided he just could not pass up the possibility of a free iPad Mini and nabbed it.
