that the internet is incredible and has created so many new business opportunities and streamlined others that I’m just amazed. Why today? Well, I’ve been using proflowers.com for a couple of years now, mostly for SU, but other things as well. They have a GREAT customer service business model along with AWESOME flowers! I’m telling you, if you lived in the 18th/19th/20th century, this business would be a miracle (before that, it would probably be classified as alien).
Check this out: I decide to send flowers to someone – order entered at 9:39 am yesterday. Order processed and picked up by Fedex at 2:33 pm same day in California. Order goes to Memphis, arriving at 11:27 pm same day. Order picked up in Memphis at 3:39 am and travels to Dallas. Order delivered to suburb of Dallas at 8:09 am.
Is that incredible or what? Science fiction to be sure. Wow. And you thought that it was a miracle to put your garbage on the curb in the morning and have it disappear before you arrived home. Humph. Chimp work there. Late.
