A shop had moved to bigger premises, and one of the owner’s friends sent flowers for the occasion; but when the owner read the card with the flowers, it said, “Rest in Peace.”

The owner was rather upset and called the florist to complain.  After he had told the florist about the mistake, the florist said, “Sir, I’m really sorry but, rather than getting angry, you should imagine this: somewhere there is a funeral taking place today, and they have flowers with a note saying, “Congratulations on your new location.”

    Even worse, imagine if someone was celebrating an achievement like geting a University degree and the note saying ” Hooray, Glad to see you finially achieved your goal!” …
    …went to the funeral of someone who had taken their own life.
    Not OK on more levels than you could count.

    or maybe a farewell one intended from work colleagues ” sad to see you go, new and wonderful things are just around the corner” being sent to a funeral by accident.

    THAT one would be fun…

    Saw this the other day, but it’s still funny the second time around. 😉

    Absolutely fantastic Tilly! 🙂


I welcome your comments but be warned: I'm menopausal and as likely to snarl as smile. Wine or Maltesers are an acceptable bribe; or a compliment about my youthful looks and cheery disposition will do in a pinch.
