Things that make you go hmmm

Today is my sister's 11th birthday. I ordered a teddy bear, balloons, and chocolate to be sent to her house.

FTD called me today to say the local florist they sent the order to is OUT OF HELIUM and can't send anything until at least tomorrow. They just wanted to let me know.

I made it clear in no uncertain terms that well, that is simply unacceptable! I told them find a different florist, use a substitution for the balloons, and they WERE going to give my sister something, TODAY.

GAH! A florist running out of helium? Sheesh.

(BTW--if you haven't checked out the educational side columns on my blog lately, and you're interested in CM/SM/related issues, many new studies and such have been added.)


  1. No helium? Now, that's insane! That's as crazy as a movie theater saying they are out of popcorn.

    Happy birthday to your sister!

    And many hugs to you!

  2. Oi! What kind of excuse is that? It's super easy to go down the street and pick up a small helium tank ~ I hope your sister had a great b-day today. Today is also my oldest daughter's tenth b-day ~ Hugs to you ~ Lace

  3. Isn't it crazy??

    They did get it delivered--including balloons, and my sister was tickled pink.

    Happy birthday to Lace's daughter!
