Everyone is busy these days. We rush to work, hurry through our errands, and try to make the most of what little time we have to ourselves. Combining trips and accomplishing as much as we can in one stop is essential, but there are some things in life that we shouldn’t compromise on. One woman’s quest to simplify life by ordering flowers online recently ended up as a comedy of errors and a Tweet heard around the world.
It Started Off as Ordering Flowers Online
Supermarkets usually make life easier by providing everything we could possibly need under one roof. They may not always provide the best solution, such as the case is with their selection of flowers, but from shoelaces to eggs, you can get everything in a single trip. Many shops have simplified this further, by offering personal shoppers with pickup and delivery options. This is exactly what Suzanne B. had in mind when she placed an order with Stainsbury’s. She selected her items and added a spring bouquet to the list.
It Ended Up as Onions
Unfortunately, Suzanne’s boyfriend was the one who received the order and he wasn’t aware that she was expecting flowers. She was later surprised to find out that not only had Stainsbury’s substituted her order, but they exchanged it for an item outside the floral department. Suzanne became the “proud” recipient of a lovely bouquet of spring onions.
