A guy sends flowers to his mistress, instructs 1-800-flowers not to send a receipt to his house. They send him a "thank you card," his wife finds it, asks him to explain, when he can't, she calls 1-800-flowers and they fax over a copy of the order form complete with love note to the mistess.
Needless to say, husband and wife end up in divorce court.
And the husband is suing 1-800-flowers.
When CC's favorite mystery writer Margaret Maron wrote this story, it was a jewelry store thank-you note and the husband ended up dead.
I'd say this guy got off lucky...
who doesn't really see this lawsuit going anywhere, though the publicity might be bad for 1-800-flowers' adultery business, which might well be considerable. Also, she thinks that people who can't come up with something like "Oh, THOSE flowers... Didn't I tell you my secretary's mother died?" on the spot have no business having affairs.
