Making d@mn3d sure my wife gets her traditional bouquet of one dozen pink roses delivered to work. I may shop online, but that doesn't mean I trust online vendors.

I'm a simple man. If my wife is happy, then I'm happy...

If her online flowers don't arrive on time, well, it'll only accelerate when I pick up the "back-up" bouquet. If it's not needed, then she'll get a second set of flowers. If it *is* needed, well, I'll deliver them to her office myself.

The secret here, boys, is to carefully market your backup strategies.

Update: Thanks, Thaigrrl, for the warning, but that's why I use the backup bouquet. I either win points for hand-delivering it or I win points for suprising her with a second one at home. Also, I've never had those problems with 800flowers.com.

Update #2, 14 Feb. 2001: The backup bouquet wasn't needed, so my wife will be receiving flowers "from" our two year old daughter. Like I said, the secret is careful marketing of your backup strategies. :D

Edit by theorbtwo: thaigrrl has been renamed.
