Is it better to not receive flowers or to receive dead flowers for Valentines? I would have to say I would rather not send my girlfriend flowers than give her dead ones! I was appalled today when my girlfriend sent me a text to indicate she received her flowers and "still loved them anyway!" Obviously, this is not the reaction I wanted to hear after spending almost $60 to have some flowers sent to her work for ALL of her co-workers to see my affection for her, as well! I told her to send me pics of the flowers and I CANNOT believe you would allow this GARBAGE to be sent the day before Valentines! I could have given fresh weeds out of my backyard that looked better than these roses! She told me she had to throw a couple away because they were so bad. Not only this, but several more have at most 12 hours before they fall off on their own! Mind you, it has not even been 24 hours since she received I have attached some pictures of the garbage you sent my girlfriend representing me on Valentines day. Great job, Proflowers, EVERYONE at NEIMAN MARCUS now knows what kind of an embarrassing gift their signifcant other will receive if they order from you!!! As for me, now I have to explain why I would send my girlfriend DEAD flowers on Valentines day, how embarrasing! Here is what your website says about the flowers (exact same ones in the pictures I sent)..

> Item #30098864 HAHAHAHA.....I would like to know who hand picked these!?!?! Where are these dewy-fresh fields? Exquisite? NOT HARDLY! This is absolutely unacceptable! I demand an explanation and to what exactly what will be done about this! If I do not get an immediate response I intend to take some pictures of the roses at my local WALMART to show everyone how much better the rose quality is at WALMART than at PROFLOWERS because I am sure they are much better than the *** that was sent to my girlfriend! I will also be posting these pictures to facebook for all to see and be wary... To add insult to injury, I received this email from "Pro"flowers to indicate another mistake made by the "pros"...
