Death-Bed Of Roses

| Romantic | August 4, 2013

(A very dapper customer dressed in a black three piece suit comes in, looking for a rose for his girlfriend. I show him a large, beautiful red rose.)

Me: “This one will last the longest.”

Customer: “That doesn’t matter much. She keeps them until they’re dead.”

Me: “Oh, well this one will look the prettiest for the longest.”

Customer: “No, I mean she wants them to die. She likes dead roses and decorates the house with them.”

Me: “…oh.”

(As we don’t sell dead flowers, he buys a rose and leaves. My coworker and I sing the Addams Family theme for the rest of the day.)
