I ordered a bunch of flowers along with a balloon from Interflora for my mother last mothers' day. The balloon arrived on the Friday (and was luckily intercepted by my father who suspected it was to be hidden away until the Sunday). He duly presented her with the balloon on the Sunday- which my Mum loved and immediately rang to thank me. However you can imagine my annoyance at being thanked for a balloon when you have in fact spent a considerable amount of cash on flowers.
The flowers turned up on the Monday (as apparently no florists deliver in my area on a Sunday) despite the fact that I seem to remember paying extra for Sunday delivery.
If it were not for my terribly obedient father my Mum would have got a balloon on the Friday, flowers on the Monday and nothing at all on mothers 'day.
