Leroy Greer of Houston, Texas, was in the middle of his divorce, and thought he had reached a settlement with his wife, according to a story by WMAQ TV. Then he called 1-800-FLOWERS and ordered a dozen roses to be sent to his girlfriend.
The flower company sent a thank you note to his home – which his wife received. She called the company and asked for a receipt and they sent it to her.
Now the wife is asking for twice the amount of money as she wanted before. Greer, who says the florist promised not to send mail to his home, has filed suit seeking $1.5 million in damages for breach of contract.
The florist said “We are not responsible for an individual’s personal conduct.” I would translate that as, “Don’t blame us because you were having an extra-marital affair and got caught.”
