A new Cheltenham retailer
By Mark Owen
A new retailer was opening in Cheltenham and one of the owner's friends arranged for flowers to be sent to mark the occasion and wish the owner luck.
The flowers duly arrived at the new business site and the business owner read the accompanying card to find it said, "Rest in Peace".
The business owner rang his friend and told him what the card read. The friend was angry and called the florist to complain.
After he had told the florist of the obvious mistake and how angry he was, the florist said, "Sir, I'm really sorry for the mistake, but rather than getting angry you should consider this... somewhere there's a funeral taking place today, and they have flowers with a note saying, 'Congratulations on your new location.'"
