Prenston Macon: Amazon delivery worker praised for warm messages to beautiful home-owners
The Amazon driver said the beautiful house 'inspired him' to succeed in life
An Amazon delivery worker is now receiving heaps of praises from the netizens after he left an "inspiring" message to a homeowner, who captured this guy's sweet message on their nest doorbell camera and posted it on TikTok. Prenston Macon, 23, from Memphis, Tennessee, was making his rounds when he stumbled upon Chelsie and Robert Gilbert’s home in Olive Branch, Mississippi. When Macon saw the home, he decided to leave the Gilbert family a heartfelt message about their beautiful house.
Macon was able to live up to his company's motto “Work Hard. Have Fun. Make History” by not just delivering the package but also complimenting the beauty of their house. Macon says that it was not the first time for him, and wherever he goes for delivery, he always leaves a message to the house owners. Amazon drivers see plenty of houses throughout their day, but this particular house stood out to Macon and he was immediately taken aback.

“I don’t know what I’m doing, but this a beautiful a** house and I just want to let y’all know this,” Macon said speaking to the house camera. “Like this inspired me to motivate myself to do better. Like for real, this just off the top.” He then realized he was so distracted by the home that he brought his personal phone, rather than his work phone, to document that he had dropped off the package successfully.
Chelsie, 32, the house owner captured the heartwarming video from his nest camera and posted it on TikTok. This clip is now viral across the media and has already garnered over 5.8 million views. “I am even more excited about this message than my packages,” Chelsie captioned the clip. “Give this guy a raise Amazon!”.
Macon is a normal young guy working for a third-party delivery service agency and has been into this for the past five years. "When I pulled up to this house, it was just lit up,” Macon told The Post. “Of course it was late when I arrived at the house. This house was one of the last stops on my route, I was getting ready to head back to the station, I had two more stops. But when I pulled up to the house and I was like, ‘Wait a minute . . . this is so beautiful.’ ” he said.
The grand house which he mentions in the video is a five-bedroom, 4.5 bathroom residence spanning more than 4,400 square feet, which the Gilberts purchased in 2019. The home was last listed for $575,000, and is estimated to be worth $750,000 today. The exterior of the house was initially red brick but has since been painted white.
“For me, it made me want to find out how I can work to afford a house like that,” Macron said. “It gave me a vision of imagining myself coming home to family in a house like this. That moment was my motivation. I love Mississippi. Most people are so kind and even leave out snacks. I didn’t even see if they had left out snacks because I was distracted.” Macon added.
Macon revealed that initially, he was not aware of the video clip and the recordings going viral throughout social media but he later got to know about this from his girlfriend, and the video was reportedly recorded on January 27. “I was tired and trying to sleep. I had just come home from a long day at work, and that’s when my girlfriend showed me the video. I was shocked they posted the video. But I am just so thankful, because it got such positive feedback.” Macon said in his thanks message.
