Surprise ruined

Today is our 8 year anniversary. My husband hardly ever does anything for our anniversary besides saying "happy anniversary I love you" type stuff. Lets just say I never get surprises.

Anyways..... I get a call from a flower lady and she says your husband ordered you flowers but put your name on them. I need your name. I told her. She says "sorry to ruin your surprise."

I am so bummed it go ruined!! I didn't tell my husband that she called an ruined it. I just told him how lovely they were and thanked him alot for thinking of me today!

I wish it would have been a surprise!

That's exactly what I was thinking. Why couldn't she have out mrs. _____. She had my husbands last name.

I'm still super bummed! He never does surprises (or he ruins them by telling months in advance lol).. He tried hard this time and it got ruined!

Maybe I should. She kind of giggled and said "sorry to ruin your surprise."

I agree. That's really crappy of her. Obviously she knew it was a surprise. Why didn't she call your husband back?

aww that stinks. I   recently had  something similar happen. My husbands in Afghanistan right now and sent  me flowers for our anniversary. the company messed up and sent them 2 days later. My husband called on our anniversary hinting about did i like my surprise.. finally he gave up and told me.. i could tlel he was very unhappy when they arrived 2 days late WITHOUT A CARD to boot. He snot a flowers type of guy so it was a huge deal. I was still thrilled he took the time to stop and think of me in  his busy day  though . Ill probably not get flowers anymore hehe. In any event happy anniversairy ihope they are beautiful.

I agree with PP, I would call her manager and complain. Seriously, that was really fucked up.

I think he ordered them online and put our house number (thinking they would not have a reason to call). She also call my cell today when dropping them off saying I wasn't home but it states to leave them at the door so that's what she was doing.... Ugh okay wtf did you call me to tell me that. Gahhhhhhh!
