Stan Lee's cameo character, an informant for the Watchers explains that in his experiences on Earth, he was a Federal Express employee. This is a direct reference to a past MCU film, Captain America: Civil War which was released in 2016. The MCU timeline also places the events of the film as 2016 as well. However, Guardians of the Galaxy Vol. 2 takes place in 2014, just two months after the first film. So the Watcher Informant would have no way of telling them of a job he had on Earth if it never happened in the chronological timeline.
However, this error can be argued by saying that he could be referencing to a past event, and not his direct cameo in Civil War. This can only be solved by relying on the possibility that if the Stan Lee cameos in all MCU films are the same person, it would have to be that the Informant would have to continuously switch jobs (he is seen as, for example, a Smithsonian Security Guard in Captain America: The Winter Soldier and a Bartender in Ant-Man) throughout the MCU timeline.
