So apparently when you are having an affair, perhaps you shouldn’t send your girlfriend flowers via a national flower service where you have to use a credit card? You know, shop local, use cash, keep the local economy rolling.
His soon to be ex-wife gets the bill and calls the company to see what the order was. They faxed her a copy of the bill and she saw the flowers were for another woman and included a note:
“Just wanted to say that I love you and you mean the world to me!”
So, the so-called amicable divorce is no longer oh so amicable, and on top of her alimony, she wants a payment for $300,000.
Now, this being America, good ole Leroy thinks he should, and now has, sue 1-800-Flowers for $1 million dollar in damages for violating his request that his information not be shared with third parties.
Yeah… here comes my rant.
The way I see it, until the divorce was finalized, and they are sharing a credit card, that means she’s not a third party. If she knows the credit card number, has a copy of the credit card statement, and shares his last name… I don’t get it. Marriage, by law, is defined as a partnership, so, she is still technically his partner.
Unless the law is re-written, fracturing the most basic understandings of how marriage operates, then this man has no case. But, as I said earlier, this being America, he of course has to try, tying up even more of the precious time of the judicial system with his claim.
