Thanks, You Shouldn’t Have…Really…

3 Jun

I got a huge bouquet of gorgeous flowers from my manager the other day. Seriously, so pretty, and massive, and probably costly.

The bouquet is so large I had to seatbelt it in to my suv, it was an interesting drive home lol

I am not really a flower type of person so while I appreciate the sentiment and the beauty of the flowers I would have been just as happy, if not more so, to have gotten something else…like a gift card to Safeway or something. Isn’t that horrible? For some reason I feel like that is horrible when really it is just a personal preference.

When someone gives me flowers it makes me wonder why they feel the need to give me an armful of dead things that are going to take up space in my tiny cramped apartment and do nothing more than wilt, slowly showing on the outside just how dead they are on the inside. What did I ever do to you that you felt giving me something dead was a good way to show your feelings towards me? sigh.

Yes, I am aware I am not normal. πŸ˜‰ lol

Thing is, my apartment is very small and there is nowhere for these flowers to sit that doesn’t put them in the way. I don’t mean slightly in the way but massively in the way. They have to either sit on the stove or on what teeny tiny counter space I have beside the kitchen sink, neither spot is ideal. I use the stove, oddly enough, so I have to move them off the stove every time I want to eat and that teeny tiny bit of counter is where other things generally live so the flowers have taken up residence on a tv table that stands in the middle of the kitchen, generally being a pain in my ass. Sometimes they even end up on the floor but they aren’t safe there, I live with a cat, anything on the floor becomes fair game to him lol

The reason behind the flowers was because I have been doing extra work for my manager as well as helping out with a variety of things and generally having to do the work of three because of training new staff. Its not that I thought management hadn’t noticed, I just hadn’t thought of it at all so being surprised with the flowers and being told what they were for was really nice. Its always nice to be told you are appreciated. They came with a lovely card that will last far longer than the flowers. πŸ™‚

So yeah, here I am, probably the most ungrateful person to ever receive flowers, finding more joy in the heartfelt written card than the gorgeous floral display taking up the middle of my kitchen space. Go ahead judge me, I probably deserve it. πŸ˜›
