I've never received flowers except once for work, from the company offices for my promotion - all the people promoted received flowers at work. I have also sent flowers to people at work for congratulations on all sorts of occasions.
On the one hand, I miss having never received flowers more often, but on the other, I'd rather plant a flowering perenniel it more than once. Someone gave me several vases of funeral flowers once when I was a teen and it creeped me out.
Anotehr recolelction is that at once company, a coworker used to send herself flowers from a secret admirer - I finally realized she must have been lonely.
Last time I received flowers at work they were ordered by my boyfriend's secretary (they were having an affair). It was my birthday. He had forgotten, she remembered. He missed a message from her saying she'd sent them. When I thanked him, he had no idea what I was talking about.
It was last year before I quit the corporate world. The marketing department was sending flowers to our customers who placed repeat orders. When we came to work in the morning, each Account Manager has bunch of flowers on his/her table.
That was really cool but I was thinking how much it cost the company. There were hundreds of Account Managers.
It's been several years ago for me. It was from a guy I had been talking to online. It was my first experience with ProFlowers.com and I highly recommend them. I actually wrote a hub about this experience called "My Crazy Online Experience".
