True story.....

OK this happened today and I can't get anyone to agree with me.

A bunch of flowers were delivered to the office today really expensive looking.

It was delivered to a guy who when he was leaving to go home left them in the office because they did not come from his fiance and he can't take them home.

The thing is another guy asked him if he could have them and he said ok and this other guy is taking them home to his girlfriend and I think that is so wrong and no one agrees with me.

Do you guys agree with me? What if his girlfriend ask where the flowers came from I know I will want to know and if he tells her the truth she may not like to be getting someone's rejected flowers or even if he makes up a story it will still be wrong in my mind.

I don't know I have to ask the husband when I go home later I am so superstitious I am thinking what if the girl who sent them sent them to create problems for the guy and him taking them home will carry the bad omen to his girlfriend I guess thats what you get from growing up in the caribbean and hearing stories about soucouyant.

Cho, its a pity for them to be wasted. Let the man carry them home yes... or maybe the guy should have split up the flowers in the bouquet and given the flowers to ladies in the office.
Sounds like the brother is a shotta doh! Big up to him!

Yeah, I was just going to say it sounds like the guy is cheap, getting credit for brining home someone else's flowers. I agree with Mad Bull, they should have split them among the ladies in the office. Or just left them at the office for everyone to enjoy.

who's to say that the guy won't go home and say "some guy was gonna throw these out?"

why is it so bad to take the flowers? i've brought flowers home for my mom that were clearly at the office for someone else... they beautify the place... why does it matter if i got them from the store or from a colleague?

this is really not a big deal.

Uhhm for me its not a big deal - though I know some people are sensative about that so it could blow up in my face.

I don't see the big deal either. At least this way someone will surely enjoy them. Who cares where they come from!

Did you know that here in Holland they take the flowers that were used at funerals and use them to decorate the churches? If taking flowers from the office and bringing them home is a bad open, how about taking flowers from the dead and bringing them to church?? In your opinion the church people should already have died from bad luck a long time ago, huh? ;-)

To each his own I guess. I wouldn't do it...or at very least I would tell her the story.

Mad Bull boy why didn't I think of that he should have really given it to the girls in the office as for him being a shotta we kept asking him what did he do to get a girl to send flowers to him and he wouldn't say he made it sound as if the girl was stalking him I guess he doesn't want one of us to tell his girlfriend she calls the ofice sometimes my husband said the same thing he doesn't see what the big deal is too i guess i am one of those who hope that when my man gives me flowers i hope its because he went thru the trouble of paying for them and not just recycling.

Let me try to ease your mind. The 2nd fellow who is taking home the flowers should be commended for thinking of his girl in such a situation...the man is sensitive to a situation: Why waste flowers when they could be used to make someone elses life better? By the way do you really think his girl is going to ask him where they came from? I think she is more likely to ask him Why the flowers? And to that he can reply with a clear conscience "Just Because" It's a win win for everyone...wifey gets flowers, guy gets nookie, original playa gets home scot free and the girlfriend at home doesn't get vex cause strange flowers a reach di yard.

Aarond gets my applause as well.

SMG...ever hear the expression...."What you don't know won't hurt you!?"

(Don't get me wrong...it is not necessarily true....)

If your hubby had brought the flowers home and told you the true story behind them, would you vex wid him? Or would you say..."OK lovey, I guess it is the thought that counts? Let me go for my favourite vase!" :-)
