    Default Smells like roses, NOT.... 1-800-FLOWERS

    MISSOURI CITY, Texas -- A Missouri City man is suing an online florist because they sent his wife a receipt for flowers he ordered - the problem is the flowers weren't for her.

    Red roses are supposed to symbolize love, passion, happiness and romance - but all that changes when your wife finds a receipt for flowers you sent to your girlfriend.

    Leroy Greer told FOX 26 News that when he sent the flowers, he was not together with his wife.

    Greer has filed a federal lawsuit against 1-800-FLOWERS, INC.

    In April 2007, Greer, who was in the middle of a divorce, used the company website, 1800flowers.com, to order a dozen red roses and teddy bear for a woman who was not his wife.

    According to Kennitra Foote, the attorney for Greer, "a couple months later 1800flowers sent a thank you card to his home and his wife who he was reconciling with saw the card and said who ordered flowers and why?"

    After Mrs. Greer called the company, she was sent a copy of the receipt by fax along with the note he sent with the flowers and what he purchased.

    The copy of the note included with the purchased items read "Just wanted to say I love you," which was sent to the girlfriend.

    After reading it, Mrs. Greer wrote her husband Leroy a note of her own before refiling her divorce papers.

    According to Leroy Greer, she decided to ask for more money. He told FOX 26 News that he "was gonna give her $150,000 and $4,000 a month in child support. She was satisfied with that."

    Mr. Greer said finding out about those $100 roses caused his wife to demand a $400,000 lump sum plus $6,000 a month in child and spousal support."

    Mrs. Greer declined the request to interview with FOX 26 News, but 1-800-FLOWERS sent a statement to FOX 26 that said: "We take pride in creating relationships with our customers by recognizing and thanking them for their business. We take all matters relating to our customers seriously; however, we are not responsible for an individual's personal conduct. Beyond this, it is the company’s policy not to comment on pending litigation and legal matters."

    Foote said "People are going to swing one way or another they're gonna think he doesn't deserve anything he just got busted he should just take it, but its more than just his reputation or him being an adulterer."

    According to Leroy Greer, it's about his soured marriage. Greer is seeking more than one million dollars in damages.

    So where does that leave the girlfriend, who he "loved" for a month or two?

    People throw that word around a little too freely, methinks.

    Lifetime should do a movie based on this, called "Leroy's Flowers". Starring Judith Light as the estranged wife, Billy Bob Thornton as Leroy, and Melissa Gilbert as the girlfriend. And Steve Buscemi as the disturbingly effective attorney.

    it would be more like Mo'Nique as the wife, Chris Tucker as Leroy, and Thandie Newton as the girlfriend.
