Woman Sues Florist For $400,000.00



If the woman's flowers cost $27,435.14, I hate to imagine how much her entire wedding cost.

I realize that people who have oodles of money, have every right to spend a HUGE fortune on their weddings, but I can't help but feel a little nauseated when people do this, when I see so much pain and suffering in this world. There are so many people who are homeless and hungry; so many children who are skin and bone; so many animals who are suffering.

To spend $27,435.14 on flowers for one day disgusts me beyond belief, and what disgusts me even more, are people like this BLOODSUCKER, who have no compassion or scruples when it comes to ruining other peoples lives, such as the florist she's suing for $400,000.00 for getting the colors wrong on her stupid flowers. I cannot understand how the court system allows these types of immorally outrageous law suits to be permitted in the first place.

Take that odious man who sued that poor little Korean dry cleaners for $65 million but later found it in his heart to reduce the his claim to $54 million for losing his pants. The little dry cleaners eventually had to close shop because they had gone broke after having to pay for lawyers fees to defend them.

I find these things a legal way of robbing people blind, people who have worked all their lives to own a business. I find it tragic that so many people worked hard to gain their own fortune through a lifetime of blood, sweat and tears, only to have maggots like this woman, come along and take it all way from them for some tiny mistake.

How much more meaningful this bloodsucker's wedding might have been, had she had daisies gathered from a field for her wedding, but it's obvious she's a materialistic money hungry ogre who will stoop to anything to acquired an even bigger fortune at the cost forcing a business person into bankruptcy!

I honestly feel one 1,000 bucks is more than sufficient to spend on a traditional LITTLE wedding. A little food, a little bubbly, a little music, a little chapel, a little red rose, family and a few close and dear friends, and a whole lot of loving, kissing and F***ing ;o) on the honeymoon with your BELOVED is what truly makes a wedding day unforgettable, and extra special!

I've been to some expensive weddings where most of the people there were friends of the friends of the friends of the friends of the FRIEND that was actually invited! What a waste of money to spend on total strangers!

As for this BITCH, I hope that when she dies, and we all will die someday for sure, she’ll find a bunch of huge dried up tumbleweeds adorning her entire grave!

GRRRR!!

These kinds of folks are either 'cons on the grift' who will never have any remorse or folks who are so internally damaged that they will never know any peace. I suppose it is cold comfort to their victims that most are the latter.

No Michael, people like this woman aren't internally damaged in the least. It's just that they are a breed of God knows what, with no scruples or conscience, and what makes it all the more contemptible is that they make excuses for themselves which they believe excused them from their own treacherous deeds, and at night, they can actually sleep like a baby.

Prove it
I don't know if you could really pull it off for $1000. I'd be curious, but I think a modest wedding traditionally done would cost at least $5000. For starters, you usually have to pay money to rent the church, and sometimes this alone costs $1000. I know a local church charges $800--but I think that includes the organist, lighting, and other little setups and take down.

That wouldn't include tipping the priest.

My sister had a nice reception hall, and it cost at least $500 to rent. Assuming all you invited were close family (and where's the fun in that?) that would be at least 10 to 20 people, with at least $20 a person for food and such.

So we're well over $1000 now and we still haven't gotten flowers, dresses, tuxes, or pictures.

But $27k on flowers does seem a little much.

But you and I can still elope :-)

Elope? Hope you've got a tall sturdy ladder! ;o)

You've got me all riled up now! I'll just have to prove that it is possible to have a NICE traditional wedding for under $1,000! I did this once before in LJ, and I do believe it's time a do it again.

Now, excuse me while grab my calculator, and put on my thinking cap!

Aren't these the same people who consider other people as a resource?

But regardless of that, even if such money was spent to feed the hungry, it still wouldn't solve the problem. This system is designed to make certain people slaves, subjects, or servents -- whatever you want to call it; i.e. it's designed to put people into debt.

For example, the case with the dry cleaners' business that was forced into bankruptcy; well, if the business owners responded with a conditional acceptence, then the guy's claim would have been without merit unless he provided proof of his claim(s). The business owners would have remained in honor and thus the guy would not have had any commercial energy to proceed unless he provided proof of his claim(s). In other words, he cannot go to court without first trying to negotiate, otherwise he's in dishonor.

And lawyers usually aren't taught this. They're taught to argue. And that's where it gets expensive.

Basically, if the guy who lost his pants fully disclosed the value of those pants, then he would have right to make such a claim. But full disclosure was never given. <--- that's just an example of the things they could've used to refrain from having to go into bankruptcy.

The problem is that people are kept purposely ignorant of this system and how it's structured. And it's used to justify wars, racketeering, extortion, fraud and so on.

It's really sad.

I believe so.

No, it wouldn't solve the problem of hunger, but wouldn't it be nice if these people experienced a full belly for at least a day, instead of that money going on the flowers this woman paid for her wedding?

I feel sorry for the sucker who married this woman. Can you imagine the fortune she'll suck him out of when they divorce?! Oh my!

Re: I planned our wedding
5,000 bucks seems like some nice happy numbers! I'm sure your wedding was really nice!

I feel sorry for people who have businesses; because I'm sure they don't sleep very soundly, knowing that there are some people out there who are looking for any little excuse to sue the hell out of them!

It's a balancing act....
.. Rich people often also make huge donation to charities to help with those very same social ill you described. These charitable donations far outweigh the amounts of "frivolous spending". As for the law suits, Most do get over turned on appeal. We only hear about the sensational ones. Being rich is not a crime or sin.Less then 1% of all murders, Assaults, rapes, and even animal cruelty charges are by people making over $75,000. that is even accounting for the far that few people live in that bracket.

Re: It's a balancing act....

Some scholars disagree with that position:
In the realm of private philanthropy, about half of all money donated comes from multimillionaires. Although some charitable programs help the needy and neglected, the fact is that American philanthropy is not primarily devoted to such causes.

Charitable philanthropy directly serves the rich. Teresa Odendahl, in her book Charity Begins at Home, calculated that over two thirds of philanthropic giving goes to "elite non-profit institutions-Ivy League universities, museums, symphonies, think tanks, private hospitals, prep schools, and the like." Through such donations, which are invariably tax-deductible, "the wealthy end up funding their own interests." Of the $124 billion spent on private philanthropy in 1991, only 10 percent went for "human service" projects that serve the poor. Furthermore, as the richest citizens began making more money they began giving away less of it. In 1979 individuals who earned more than $1 million gave away about 7 percent of their after-tax income; by 1996, that figure had fallen to just 4 percent. Likewise, it should come as no surprise that in 1995, when corporate profits jumped a record of 30 percent to over $600 billion, corporate philanthropy went up only 8 percent, accounting for just $7 billion of the $144 billion given by all sources.
Our hereditary aristocracy, like every other aristocracy, takes care of itself.

If you're someone whose wedding can be ruined by something like the wrong flowers, you'll FIND something to get bent out of shape over. Lexi & I spent somewhere around $5000 for under 100 people. And the majority of that went to photos and food. We got a discount on the chapel and alumni hall & Mills College as Lexi's an alum, and she bought her dress used at a wedding consignment store for about $100 (plus some for adjustments).
Said Stamos: “My father used to tell me, ‘Don’t deal with lawyers.’ Maybe he was right, God bless his soul.”
If you're the kind of person who can throw that kind of money around, ruining someone else's business will mean nothing to you. Because behind every great fortune is a great crime. What it takes to get filthy rich in this country does not encourage our hereditary aristocracy to think about the welfare of the peasantry, only punishing them when they get out of line and inconvenience their betters.

Remember what I said about us becoming Brazil. The aristocrats are suing the peasants for massive punitive damages, i.e. to punish. Because you don't inconvenience Aristocrats and get away with it, not peasants like you and me and those (former) business owners.

This is our America.

RE: "great crime" quote
"Behind every great fortune is a great crime," is a direct quote from a rich guy (father of a friend's boyfriend).

He declined to elaborate further. ;-)

People like that judge and that chick at the wedding don't sue for money. They sue to cost some one who pissed them off their job or their business. They do that to make them go bankrupt. Rich people like that have money to burn so spending a few hundred thousand to ruin some one is nothing to them. It would be like you or I spending three dollers at the mall to get a poster of a band we like. But for them it's to ruin some one.

I believe they sue for outrageous amounts because of their love of money; the richer they are, the richer they want to be.

Regular folk are good at frivolous suits, also. For example, that old woman who sued McDonald's. It's fine to sue, but sue for what's fair; for an amount that won't cause a company to go bankrupt.

I read the article on the situation today, and the bride is a lawyer. Go figure, huh? But anyhow, the florist is largly at fault here. The florist attempted to swindle the bride & groom and got caught. Afterwards, the bride sent the florist emails demanding a $4,000 refund. And the florist just ignored her. Thus the newly weds filed a lawsuit against him. Even though the amount is $400 thousand, I seriously doubt that's what they'll get. But, in the end, the florist brought this on himself. He's no victim here. So I retract a lot of what I said in my previous post. If that's how the florist handles his business, then he's getting what he deserves.

In my eyes, the lawsuit is justified, though the amount doesn't appear to be.

For the last time, of course I want you as my LJ friend, if I didn't, I wouldn't say a word and just delete you.

As for my Yahoo Messenger, I told you a while back, what? I've never mentioned my Yahoo Messenger to you or anyone. I've never invited you or anyone to my Yahoo Messenger. I've never even mentioned I have a Yahoo Messenger. I don't have time to chit chat on my Yahoo Messenger, and the only reason I have it in the first place, is so I can communicate with my brothers about business.

As you already know, I have my online tagboard to chat with friends. I enjoy chating there with you and those who enjoy chatting with me.

I've always been up front with you. Please! Stop putting words in my mouth. I'm a free agent, and I really don't have to account to anyone for my actions. If you want to continue being my LIVEJOURNAL friend, please don't suffocate me, because it's something i just can't and won't handle.

I love you Pete, but understand that I love you as a LJ friend, just as I love ALL my LJ friends. It's all up to you if you want to continue being my LJ friend. Really!
