Sympathy Card Mix-up
(Author unknown. Received in an email from C. Larene Hall.)

A business was relocating and one of the owner's friends wanted to send him flowers for the occasion. The floral arrangement arrived at the new business site and the owner read the card, "Rest in Peace."

The owner was angry and called the florist to complain. After he told the florist of the obvious mistake and how angry he was, the florist replied,

"Sir, I'm really sorry for the mistake, but rather than getting angry, you should imagine this ... somewhere there is a funeral taking place today, and they have flowers with a note saying, 'Congratulations on your new location.'"

If you get a second, drop off a comment and let me know a mix-up that's happened to you. The craziest one I ever experienced was when I received a Christmas present meant for someone else.

OH my gosh, I LOVE that. Funny, but still sad at the same time. And a good way of pointing out how easy it is to not look at the other side of things. Thanks for the chuckle.
