Flowers from Randy

I have some friends who work for a florist as flower delivery men. Working for any florist would be a great job: you smell good, you bring people things that are pretty, and you help restore relationships when they have been tarnished. Here is a great situation in which one of these friends (we will call him Randy) used flowers to help AND hurt a relationship.

As Randy was delivering flowers one day, he found himself close to the home of his long-time girlfriend. He thought to himself, "This is going to be a great joke." He then pulled the van up to her house and knocked on the door. As she opened it he smiled and handed her a large bouquet of flowers. Her happiness toward Randy was limitless--that is until he told her that he was working, and these flowers were meant for someone else. He took them away and got back into the van. Good one.

What can we learn from Randy, the florist delivery man? that if you pretend to give your girlfriend flowers, you will have to buy her real flowers later or she will kill you. This is also the lesson that Randy learned. As he continues to deliver flowers around his residence in--let's say Oklahoma City--let's hope that he treats his florist duties with a little more respect than he has in the past.
