I imagine this lady has got to be a ton of fun to hang out with. And I can’t imagine her marriage lasting more than 5 years. What sort of person thinks it’s necessary to spend $27,000 on flowers for a wedding? Obviously I don’t know anything about these people other than what was mentioned in the article, but something makes me think that if just the flowers for a wedding cost more than the price of a new car, the florist in question is probably pretty reputable. I would say that the chances that the flowers were in dusty vases with no water is slim. I imagine that this lady is probably extremely hard to please, very wealthy, and used to getting her own way or else. And she didn’t like the shade of the hydrangeas. Poor baby. So she sent the florist an email asking for a $4000 refund (so I guess most of the flowers must have been fine, since she only asked for $4000 out of the $27,000 paid). But the emails probably weren’t all that polite. The florist said he ignored them because they were so insulting. I bet she was a total witch when she communicated with him. And now she’s filed a $400,000 lawsuit against the florist.
People like this lady (and probably her new husband) are a total waste of space. They don’t realize or care that there are people in the world with real problems. People who are starving, have nowhere to live, no clean water, no medical care. People who are dying of cancer because a chemical company dumped carcinogenic waste into their water sources for 30 years (now there’s a valid lawsuit). But Elana Glatt has to deal with orchids that aren’t as perfect as she pictured. The poor thing.
I hope a judge throws this one out (possibly while ordering the florist to give back $4000 if it’s deemed appropriate) and gives Ms. Glatt a lecture about what’s important in life and what’s not.
