    Anyone ruin Valentine's Day today? I delivered a box of flowers that sounded like a janitors keychain. Broken vase

    vases are cheap or put them in a couple of beer bottles
     
  3. You didn't ruin it. The guy who couldn't buy flowers at a florist and personally give them to his wife/girlfriend, instead of her finding it in a box on the ground did.

    Maybe he is a UPS driver and the florist is closed before and after he gets done work?

    I get my wife flowers but not around Valentine's Day or Sweetest Day. I love her but I refuse to pay over inflated prices for something that will be tossed after a week.

    When my wife and I were dating, I think for our third Valentine's day I decided to get her NICE flowers from a local florist. I was floorder when I got to the cashier and they were JUST under $200.00! I damn near fainted.

    My wife always says no flowers on Valentine's day, but I still do it anyway

    I paid $150 for crap flowers from a florist last year, decided to try FTD this year since I'm a driver with no time. Well, vase was broke and the flowers were dead. However, the nice Arab woman read my a line from her computer screen about how sorry she was and gave me a full refund. What a joke. Never again.

    Proflowers is the way to go IMHO. Great customer service as well. Had an order mis-delivered once. They called me to fix issue. Had new order next day delivered no charge no fuss.

    I started getting flowers at Krogers. Just as good and much cheaper.

    There's always the phone. Furthermore, every florist I know stays open very late on Feb 13 & 14. JMHO

    UPS should be doing the same thing with its rates at peak, and most likely will in the future.
