The Trick to Flowers – Advice #9

Posted on July 16, 2011


There are certain situations that should not be approached without flowers. The complicated part is determining which situations those are. For example, if you are going to get your license renewed, a bouquet of flowers can be used as a bartering chip. One very important thing to consider is that your lover should not see you handing Bertha, the DMV employee, a dozen roses. In fact, Bertha does not even like roses so not only will your lover be angry but you will be told to stand in the back of the line.

Even more complicated is determining what state the flowers you offer should be in. Fresh flowers are appropriate for Valentine’s Day and graduations and trips to the grocery store (where the Cashier may or may not scan their discount card for you). Dead flowers are appropriate in certain other situations. If you have done something terrible to your lover you should bring them dead flowers. This is a sign of surrender and has a 1 in 2 chance of gaining favor and/or forgiveness.

All situations must be analyzed before deciding whether flowers are appropriate or harmful to your goal.

This is the trick to flowers.
