😀 I just got this article from a friend, and found it hilarious to post it inside my wordpress. for those who only speak Indonesian, you can also find another news about the same guy at:
okay, let’s go back to the article I got from a friend just now. I got this one from http://www.transworldnews.com/NewsStory.aspx?storyid=20577&ret=Current.aspx?pg=3
Texas Man, LeRoy Greer, Sues 1-800-Flowers for Revealing His Affair
Atlanta, Ga. 8/13/2007 4:41 PM GMT (FINDITT)
LeRoy Greer just wanted to send flowers to his girlfriend. Sounds simple enough but after Greer arranged for a bouquet to be sent courtesy of 1-800-flowers the simple task became a major headache for the car salesman.
As it turned out Greer was married and his wife wasn’t the one receiving the flowers, just the thank you card from 1-800-flowers for purchasing the flora.
While Greer was already in the process of divorcing his wife the 1-800-flowers incident didn’t help his standing any and now his wife is all the more eager to end their union. Oh and now that she is aware of the extramarital affair she wants more money as well.
Greer, upset that the company delivered a thank you note for the purchase, is now suing the floral company. Greer had specifically noted on his order that he did not want any cards or information sent to the house he shared with his wife. He now blames the company of falling short of delivering the flowers in a discreet manner, which just so happened to cause his wife to flip out.
Now Greer, a Texas resident, has asked for $1 million from the florist who made the mistake but as of yet there has been no pay off.
here is also an excerpt from http://news.aol.com/story/ar/_a/man-sues-florist-for-revealing-affair/20070810160709990001:
After learning of the affair, Greer’s wife asked for a $300,000 divorce settlement in addition to child support, said Kennitra Foote, Greer’s attorney.
hmmm … worth it? what he sowed is what he reaps now. serves him right. this is a good lesson for the morons out there that “you can’t hide the fish because the smell stinks”. 😀
here is a blog also mentioning about this case. a very cool blog entry to read. just check it out! a very good thought. http://averagebro.blogspot.com/2007/08/leroy-greer-needs-to-learn-how-to-creep.html
a search on the google with “leroy greer sued florist” will give you a lot of result. *grinning*
and I found it interesting that he said that he had to pursue this matter because of what everyone was saying about him on the internet. (http://blogs.chron.com/legaltrade/2007/08/suing_flower_sender_on_today_s.html)
but in my opinion if he had not pursued this matter, no one would be talking about him on the internet. 😀
next time, STOP cheating on your wife.
