It’s that time of the year again, when everyone orders beautiful bouquets of flowers online for mom, and a pile of wilted weeds shows up on the doorstep instead.

And sometimes nothing at all!

There were lots of unhappy 1-800-Flowers customers this Mother’s Day complaining on social media about terrible service and deliveries that didn’t exactly live up to the pictures online.

Some flowers arrived dead, some weren’t even the same product as what was originally ordered.

Many people are posting some interesting before and after images, while others are simply expressing their outrage with nasty messages on their Facebook page.

“Once again another occasion ruined by using 1-800-flowers!” writes one Facebook commenter.

“My mom taught me that you should honor your word and keep your integrity,” writes another. “I guess that has not been taught by the founder or passed down to the company in any shape or form.”

The 1-800-Flowers customer service team is in full recovery mode, per usual, responding to the angry tweets and posts.

And this isn’t the first time this sort of thing has happened. In fact there’s even a hashtag that has emerged for people to vent about the service: #1800FlowersFail.

This past February 1-800-Flowers also ruined Valentine’s Day, with lots of people sharing their miserable looking arrangements online.

Here are some of the latest delivery debacles from Twitter, Instagram and Facebook, as well as a few jokes.

Apology of the Day: Georgia School Founder Sorry for Making Racist Remarks at Graduation, Blames Devil

Well this certainly was a graduation that the students will never forget.

At the TNT Academy commencement ceremony in Georgia on Friday, the Valedictorian’s speech was accidentally left out of the program, so the crowd had started to disperse when he got up to speak, and not everyone was paying attention.

That’s when the school’s founder/director Nancy Gordeuk stepped up to the microphone to tell everyone that they were being rude.

“Look who’s leaving… all the black people,” she said.

As the video shows, the room quickly reacts to the racist comments with some people approaching the podium and others walking out in disgust.

Gordeuk has since apologized in an email to parents, in which she says “the devil was in the house and came out from my mouth,” according to 11 Alive News in Atlanta.

She also issued the following statement to NBC News.

Frustrated with the prospect of ruining the once-in-a-lifetime ceremony the graduates have worked so hard for, my emotions got the best of me and that is when I blurted out ‘you people are being so rude to not listen to this speech.’ I deeply apologize for my actions made in the emotional state of trying to let this last student finish his speech.

Here’s another video of the incident that includes a moment before the racist remarks where she calls someone a “goober” and a “coward.”

“She’s off her rocker,” says one of the men in the video.

Lawsuit of the Day: A Nebraska Woman is Suing All Homosexuals in the Name of Jesus

A 66-year old woman from Nebraska is suing all gay people, because she thinks homosexuality is a sin, and she wants the law to finally acknowledge it.

Also because she is out of her mind.

Sylvia Driskell filed the lawsuit on May 1 with U.S. District Court of Omaha, and in a handwritten, 7-page document she lists herself as the “ambassador” for the plaintiffs “God and his son, Jesus Christ.”

The defendants are listed as simply “homosexuals” – presumably, every single one of them – which would make for quite a full courtroom.

Here are a few passages from the lengthy, incoherent argument:

I Sylvia Ann Driskell; Contented that homosexuality is a sin, And that they the homosexuals know it is a sin to live a life of homosexuality. Why else would they have been hiding in a closet.


Never before has Our great Nation the United States of America And our great State of Nebraska; been besiege by sin; The way to destroy any Nation, or State is to destroy its morals; Look what happen to Sodom and Gomorrah two city because of the same immoral behavior thats present in Our Nation, in Our States, and our Cities; God destroy them.

After the news broke, Dan Savage simply Tweeted that he hopes to get a chance to testify, which would be amazing.
