1-800-flowers still sucks

i just got 12 long-stemmed de-thorned red roses with baby's breath and a clear vase. the delivery card noted wednesday, feb 14 (two days ago). about half of the flowers are starting to wilt and the water in the vase is cloudy and yellow. also, the whole thing is freezing.

i think that whoever was supposed to deliver them was on a crack binge and my flowers just sat with the delivery guy in a van down by the river for the past few days. and then he switched out half of the wilted flowers with half of a healthier bouquet's, so that he then had two just-okay bunches unstead of one nice and one crap. this is why they were two days late and half of them are dying.

or, it could be that 1-800-flowers is just a shitty company. but pos already got his money back (or they at least TOLD him this). i found out how much he spent on these and i was like "oh my god, don't ever do that again. go to jewel and get me a $7 bouquet if you want to give me flowers." i love the gesture, but these aren't worth that much.

i did get a card with the flowers. it's on crappy 1-800-flowers cardstock and was generically printed IN BOLD AND IN ALL CAPS AND ITALICIZED, so it's weird to read - like it is screaming, with lots of emphasis. it says, among some mushy stuff, "i hope it has a happy valentine's day . . . i still think this is a hallmark holiday, but i want it to be happy." i love it when he calls me "it." thanks for the flowers, the card, and the aggravation you suffered, pos.

How do you know POS isn't the guy on a crack binge sitting with your flowers in a van down by the river for the past few days?

I'm just sayin'...
