Mothers Day funny

My mom and dad send my sister and I flowers every year for Mothers Day. It's nice to get some- as they are very pretty right?

Well..... here's a funny story for ya.

My sis calls me up on Thursday afternoon and relates this story to me:
she had just gotten her flowers and they typically come with a note attatched with a nice little message. WELL..... there was a nice little message on hers alright. It said (something to the affect of) "Customer is VERY picky. Make sure they look nice."


now you can't tell me that's not hilarious. so that "customer" is reffering to my mother. Bless her heart- she makes sure that the florist KNOWS that they better send a GOOD solid, fresh bouquet. I guess they kind of forgot to take that little note off of the message that was meant for my sis. But this was her bouquet..... very pretty right?

again... VERY funny. we laughed a good one at that.

Yesterday I ran some errands and then went to pick up the kids from school. When we got home, there was a little bouquet sitting on my door step. My first thought was "Are they allowed to just leave a bouquet on the doorstep?" but whatever. Upon closer inspection... this is what was sent to me.

So then.... I call my mom and say thanks for the flowers and how much they sucked. hahahaha- she was a little upset obviously and made a phone call to the florist this morning to get me some new flowers. Can you believe that they actually delivered these? all brown and wilty and sad. Personally- I think it's hilarious. BUT- i'm not the one who paid good money for it. I'd be pretty pissed if i paid money and this is what i got. As of right now.... they were supposed to be delivering a new bouquet today and nothing has come. So i can't make a comparison right now. But i'll post pics of the new bouquet once I get it.

And just for kicks- i took more pics of what it looked like today. I swear- they made this arrangement like a week ago and didn't refrigerate it. so sad right?

Now.... how's that for a funny? I'm still laughing my butt off at the whole thing. My mom... not so much. hahahahahaha :)

That is crazy! Your sister's bouquet is gorgeous and yours is so pitiful. I hope you get new flowers soon :).
