The Florist at Christmas
As we near yet another Christmas festive season I felt the muse come upon me to share a few observations............
I work as a retail florist and the buying or 'just looking' general public can be a wonderful source of humour:-
1. When ordering a flower arrangement the customer who adds - Can you make it nice????
No Ill make it an absolutely ugly one..just for you madam.
2. Can you deliver it before 7.30 am??
No madam , florists have to sleep too.
3.I dont really believe in Christmas but Ive got to get something for them.
Someone holding a loaded gun to your head sir?
4.I want red lilies, not pink, red... can you do that ?
Yes I have some spray paint in the cupboard
5.Will you put sugar in the water to help them last?
Sugar is great in tea and coffee, flowers prefer something slightly different
6.Shall I put an aspirin in the water?
Not unless the flower tells you its got a very bad hangover madam
7.You may not have come across this before....
Oh believe me I have after 30 years!
8.Are you doing something nice for Christmas?
Thought I might try sleeping , sir
This is a purely random sample of the questions asked by members of the public regarding flowers.....thank goodness there are some out there who know the difference between cannas and callas , Asiatics and Orientals (lilies) , tight wrap and wet packs. ( A bit like nappies for flowers).
Have a great Christmas everone and think kindly when speaking to your local retail florist :)
