It was the opening day for a new business and a friend of the owner decided it would be a nice gesture to send them flowers for the occasion.
Well, the flowers arrived, but unfortunately, when the owner read the card that came with the flowers, it said “Rest in Peace”.
Rather shocked by this and more than a little upset, the owner called the florist to complain.
After she had told the florist about the obvious mistake, the florist apologised and said, “Madam, I am truly sorry for the mistake, but rather than getting angry, you might imagine the reaction at a funeral taking place today where they have flowers with a note that says, ‘Congratulations on you new location’!”
