NOT Open for Interpretation

Oh me, I just love finding silly shit on the internet. This one is a goody. This guy tried to surprise his wife with flowers at her workplace for no reason at all other than that he loved her (cue; Awwwwww) so he called a company to request a beautiful arrangement and this is what happened.

This morning I was feeling like the honorable husband and looked at the local florist's website to find a unique flower arrangement to surprise my wife at work.

I don't do this too often, so I figured I can get something pretty nice. I ordered this (pic attached) real unique item for almost $100 (like I said, I don't do this often).

So because it's so unique, I call and order it over the phone, used my credit card, and gave the florist the number that was listed on the website for the arrangement. I even got nervous after I hung up the phone and called back to verify they got the right order number and it was indeed the orange roses with river rocks.

At around 1:30, I get the "Thank you so much" phone call, and she was thrilled. I asked "Well what do they look like?" That's when the disappointment set in. I'm thinking to myself, do I tell her that's not right, or just go with the flow? I decided that it didn't sound anything like what I ordered and told her to go ahead and bring them home, I'd like to take a look at them too.

I get home and find this. I was very dissatisfied, called the florist, and they went on about how "they thought it was pretty enough, and it was close to the picture and they didn't have a square vase." I asked them why they didn't call me and tell me they couldn't make it look the same...they said because it looked close enough and they thought it was close enough to what I ordered that it wouldn't be that big of a difference. They said they were willing to make me happy, so they're going to "call around and find a square vase", and let me know if they can find one.

I guess the plan is for them to make another arrangement like the picture, but I'm not sure I like this... I know flowers are going to look a little different than the picture, but is this right?

I blacked out their contact info because I don't want to shame them at this point, but what would you all do?

I love how the arrangement looks NOTHING like what he ordered and the balls they had to say it was GUD ENUF. Oh bother...

Yeah, that looks NOTHING like the picture. I'd demand my money back and threaten to report them to the BBB.
