Odd thought I had last night.

I wonder if those people who are operators for places like 1-800 flowers and the pajama-gram place laugh at the men who call in and place an order for their wife and also another order for their mistress.

Because, you know, I'm sure that happens.












Dumbasses.

The radio station here does this thing with roses every week. Someone calls in who suspects their significant other is cheating. The radio station then calls and tells the sig other that they have won a dozen red roses, and they can send them to whomever they would like. Most of the time it is to some random woman...not their wife. Ha! Well not for the wife.

God you really do know how to make someone laugh.

And? Trish Marie and I listen to the same radio station!!! :)

I hope the love notes go to the correct woman...or maybe I don't.

SJ said...

Ha. That would be funny if the orders got mixed up!

I forget where I was, but I heard someone talk about being in the retail business and husbands would come in around Valentines day and buy an expensive necklace and ask for 2 in exactly the same wrapping paper, one for their wives and one for their mistress, so I'm sure that they call those places and do the same thing. LOL.

Morgan Leigh said...

actually, though maybe not, because you have to use a debit or credit card over the phone, and that would give them away, you can use cash at a department store. Just a thought.

You would *think* that they'd order pajamas for one, and flowers for the other. . . but heck, why make life easier for them.

Shhhhh, don't mention my idea! :)

You want to know the truth? They do! My husband works for one of those major flower places (loss prevention, no less). He has periodically come home and said, "Well, I think I just helped break up a marriage," when the wives call about their JOINT credit cards asking what the fee was for and who it was sent to.

D'oh!

It happens A LOT. People are idiots.

You know they do. And, they check on these things. I ordered flowers when my BFF was about to give birth & did the hospital delivery. They called to question how I'd picked out this day a week in advance (repeat C section...so we knew) & the customer service people were so on top of it. They so do.

Oh. My.

Hee hee hee...

Tamsyn said...

Oh, they do. I worked for Lush one Christmas, and had to pick out two boxes for two different women. We usually ask about the personalities of the women while we're suggesting gifts, and his wife was apparently 'very practical', while the other woman was 'sensual, passionate... Ooh, are those for massage?'

Ew. Ew, ew, ew. Oh, but he had to spend the exact same amount on each of them, 'so it was fair.'

Makes you wonder, huh?

Belly laugh.. thanks.

Le Petite Redhead said...

And it's for exactly that reason why I could never do that kind of work. : )

I'd either be laughing my butt off or sorely tempted to give the cheating jackass a piece of my mind. I'd probably be laughing since I can't spare much more of my mind. : )

Shar said...

You obviously watch the same commercials I do, so maybe you can explain to me the $80 Vermont Teddy Bear. Seriously?

Catwoman said...

I think that if I had that job, I would totally consider putting the wrong note with the presents. Because scum bags need their wives to be told who they're married to.

sterlingirl said...

And I know someone that will probably do that this year. Not my hubby, though!

Julie said...

That's funny and probably very true. I'm sure phone operators have very good stories to tell.

You so know that this happens. And why? Becasue people suck. Dumbasses.
