    It wants me to subscribe to the tele to read the whole story?

    Why wouldn't the florist apologise? And seriously, did they have their 8 year old writing the cards, because that is really appalling Poor family.

    I read it yesterday as well.. Bit sad wasn't it. Wonder who runs that florist, certainly not the right place for illiterate penmanship.

    But the owner of the florist that delivered the wreath defended his staff.

    Bunch After Bunch owner, who only gave his first name Arthur, said the employee who wrote the card was Russian and English was her second language.

    "She's a great florist who has worked here since we started 15 years ago," he told ninemsn, adding that he apologised for the mistake and offered the family complimentary flowers.

    Arthur said the misspelling could have been avoided if Ms Bellow came into the shop and wrote on the card herself or emailed the message through, like most customers do.
    OK, but really, "rest in peace" is a standard phrase used for funeral wreaths, and would be frequently used in a florist, you'd think. It would be one you'd learn. And they really may not have had time to come in and write the card or email it in (and hope for the best that it arrived on time). I think the florist should have been unreserved in their apology, not try to explain it away or blame the family who ordered it. It is a funeral, people are grieving.

    If the woman can not spell in English correctly then she should not be writing on cards... That is just awful...

    If the owner knew she didn't write or speak English well she shouldn't have been doing it on her own or she should have asked for help,even so the onus is on the owner.

    That is all you need at a time like that & for the owner not to apologise unreservedly is appallingly bad Customer Service.

    Definitely not good for business.......regardless of whether the woman was a good florist, her English isn't and both she and the shop owner should realise that and she not be writing cards.
