Valentine’s Day 2012

I was just reading an article on The Huffington Post about how 1-800-FLOWERS had a major screw up yesterday on Valentines day and failed to deliver hundred’s of orders for flowers.

Now I’m not a big Valentines day guy, but I do try to get my wife and Mom something at least, even if it’s just a card.  This is especially was a hard Valentine’s for my mother since we lost my Father in June of last year, so I wanted to have some flowers delivered to her to try and brighten her day.

Anyway, I ended up at, and can’t say anything but nice awesome things about them.  Being a typical man, I didn’t order the flowers until Monday morning 2/13, so of course I expected them to be delivered Tuesday 2/14.  ProFlowers not only delivered, but the poor FedEx guy even managed to find my Mother’s house, even though I entered the wrong address.  I got the street right, but the house number wrong.  Tuesday afternoon he showed up at my Mom’s and told her he had driven up and down the street 3 times and finally saw the name on the mailbox.

Now to me, that’s service!  My hats off to ProFlowers for making it happen, on what has got to be the busiest flower day of the year, and my hats off to the FedEx guy.

Happy Valentines to you and yours!
