Florist Mistake

Theo Paphitis, an entrepreneur well known for turning failing companies into highly successful and profitable businesses, has a motto: 'There are three reasons to be in business. To make money, to have fun and to make money.' And here are some examples of the fun reason. (Funny Business)

Florist Mistake
On opening his new store, a man receives a bouquet of flowers. He becomes dismayed on reading the enclosed card because it expresses "Deepest Sympathy." While puzzling over the message, his telephone rings. It is the florist, apologizing for having sent the wrong card.
"Oh, it's alright," says the store owner.
"I'm a businessman and I understand these things can happen."
'But,' adds the florist, 'I accidentally sent your card to a funeral party.'
"Well, what did it say?" asks the store owner.
'Congratulations on your new location,' is the reply.
