Now here's an interesting lawsuit

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.

Or, send you wife flowers often enough that she is not wondering why 1-800-flowers is sending you a thank you card.

Oooh... I actually thought of that but forgot to write it.

Good call!

Well, the "other woman" has a Myspace page (good lord, I think everyone does), and in cheating hubby's defense, she IS pretty hot. (And she has, literally, like 6000+ friends, which just confuses me.) She's also a married mother of two.

Of course, having access to a hot woman is no reason to cheat on your wife, and it's certainly not the flower company's fault for sending a receipt to your house MONTHS later.

But I suspect being a dumb-butt will haunt him for the rest of his days.

I sent you a msg in myspace!
I feel slightly evil for looking the girl up. But it's not like I sent her a nasty note or anything; I was just curious!
