In some countries or cultures, this is considered normal, mundane, and as special as buying bread.
Yet in some cultures, it is considered strange, weird, unethical or down right impolite.
I’m not talking about the flower part, I’m talking about the delivery part.
It would be kind of unfair to judge cultures based on our own, because no matter what side of the line you are on, these judgments tend to be harsher than they really need to be.
But what exactly is the flower delivery business based on?
Well, for starters, it has a solid foundation in our day to day lives.
Think about it as a helping hand. As time goes on, our lives become more and more busy, the hassle becomes greater and greater, and we are slowly but surely running out of time.
In the past, it was easy to just stop to a flower shop on your way, and pick up a nice bouquet, but nowadays the rhythm that our lives are following is at the very least 10 times more intense.
Let’s say you’re running late, and you have a very important meeting.
You manage to make it but you blow the deal and you lose the contract. This means you have to work overtime to make up for your losses, and you won’t be able to make it home like you usually do.
Let’s also say that it also happens to be your mother’s birthday.
Now that’s what I call unlucky. And come to think of it, there were a lot of people that had a lot of arguments because of incidents like this one.
And you not being able to come to her home as usual, sort of kills the mood of things.
Of course you don’t want to see your own mother upset because of that, so why not send her a gesture of appreciation?
You are stuck working, and it’s not like you would have the energy to find a flower shop in the middle of the night when you are done working.
So what else is there?
Going online and ordering a birthday flower delivery for your loved ones, is quite ok.
Or let’s say that you happen to live in another state, and the chances of actually getting to you mom’s house are slim to none.
Why stress yourself out?
The whole idea behind a birthday is to make the person feel good and know that you care.
A nice bouquet along with a nice card that you wrote is a great gesture and she will appreciate it. So what is not to like about this service?
Just thinking about it, flower deliveries have saved more marriages and relationships than counselors, and if given the right circumstances, they might actually improve your love life significantly.
In conclusion, flower delivery businesses are not to be frowned upon, and by no means of the imagination are they to be taken off the table as a solution.
Chances are that sooner or later you will need them, and when that time comes, you will be very happy that they are at your disposal.
