A elderly man in his late 70's was in town and was passing a flower shop. He decided to go inside and buy his wife some flowers. She liked yellow flowers and he saw some yellow freesia's. He thought they would be perfect but had one concern.
Man: We are going away for five days next week, will they last longer than a week.
Girl: Yes they should last a couple of weeks no problem.
So he buys them, but he was a bit concerned how she just shoved them into his bag, but he got them out to make sure they weren't broken.
Got home and his wife was in the kitchen busy doing something. He told her what he had done and she thanked him and asked him to put them down on the counter and she would put them in water when she had finished what she was doing.
As she was finishing up she looked over at the flowers and thought the leaves looked funny. On closer inspection, the leaves were artificial as were the flowers. He had bought her a bunch of artificial flowers. He had no idea they were artificial and went on to tell his wife the conversation he had with the girl in the shop and how she had told him they would last no problem.
So my question to you is, if you were the person serving this man would you had told him the flowers were artificial?
I personally would have and think it was very dishonest of the girl not to mention they were artificial to the man, after he questioned how long they would last.
