Getting what he deserves

Sometimes, people reap what they sow.

HOUSTON -- A Texas man is suing a florist after an employee there faxed a receipt to his estranged wife showing he sent flowers and a love note to his girlfriend.

The lawsuit was filed this week in Houston. It asks 1-800-flowers.com to pay for Leroy Greer's mental anguish and the increased amount he now expects to pay in his divorce case. Greer's lawyers are asking the florist for $1 million, saying the once-amicable divorce could cost as much as an additional $300,000.

In April, Greer sent his girlfriend flowers, a stuffed animal and a card that read: "Just wanted to say that I love you and you mean the world to me! Leroy." According to the lawsuit, the company promised Greer that it would send nothing to his home.

But 1-800-flowers.com later sent a coupon and a thank you card to Greer's home. According to the lawsuit, his wife saw the card, called the company and asked for a receipt. The florist faxed her the receipt, which included the message on the card.

A spokesman for the florist declined to discuss details about the lawsuit. He added that they are not responsible for an individual's personal conduct.

Just a little piece of advice to Greer. Next time, keep it in your pants until your divorce is final. Secondly, perhaps you should pay cash for expenses associated with your illicit affairs.

    So, this guy is cheating on his wife, but somehow, it's the florist's fault?

    That's not right.

    My first thought was the "it takes a village" mentality is helping along a divorce.
    Who knew a Thank You note and coupon could be used viciously by an estranged wife?

    Yeah, cash is the way to go.

    That is priceless. I hope whatever judge that hears this lawsuit laughs in that guy's face. What a sleaze.
