Valentine's Day

I hate it. And I hate, not sure I can say the name so I'll say this. They are a big "pro" flower(hint hint) place that advertise heavy on radio. I've used them before because I wait till the last minute.

Anyhow I ordered from them last night and it's not until after you pay that you see your itemized receipt. This arrangement had free standard shipping so there was credit for that. Then there is a delivery charge of like $12. Then a guaranteed delivery charge of $5 for delivery of them the day you choose. So I wrote them. Why is there a shipping charge? Even though it was waved, does this not work like Tele flora? Where they take your order and pass it to a local shop. I can't imagine they ship flowers from somewhere in the country. And if they do; why doesn't shipping cover delivery. My aquarium stuff didn't have shipping plus delivery. Delivery is part of shipping.

So I'm steaming at this right. I tell them this is my last order ever. EVAR!!!!!
What response do I get? A typical auto generated crapola response that addresses zero of what I was concerned about.
Don't buy anything from these idiots.
Guys, women find V-Day lol very important. To heck with the flowers and chocolates. Make them a dinner or breakfast in bed. Flowers are a rip off. Besides, flowers die in time. Should this be a representation of a relationship. It's beautiful at first. It's fresh and bright, and then it fades away to brown and nasty death lol

I'm not very interested in Valentine's Day, though it could be because I'm single? Very nicely said though, lol.

My aunt told me she bought me a box of chocolates, so you'll know what I'll be doing that day.

I should have known google adds would snipe my words and advertise the company I am mad about. Frickin' internet.
There's and add at the bottom too.
