Sacramento Florist Delivery

An e-florist from Old Saybrook Connecticut sent me an order for 18 roses of mix colors for delivery the same day at a particular time. I went to their website which showed they had a $5.00 off special for the week; however, they charged an additional $2.99 for same day delivery and $11.99 for handling fee. Poor customer from Sacramento had no idea that he was ordering from an e-florist who cannot deliver what was ordered. The e-florist sent the order for the amount of the flowers, but not the handling fee or the amount they collected for same day delivery.I sent the order to another florist in town. The next day, I again get a call from the e-florist asking if I could deliver 18 roses to the same person.
Their customer must be very unhappy with his order because the delivery is now late for his anniversary. In this case, even if the e-florist sends all the money paid to him, I would not accept the order - their customer might think that it was my flower shop that dropped the ball.
If the customer was more diligent in his search for a florist that could deliver his flower order, he would have found our flowershop - it is listed on the first page of the Yahoo and the MSN search engine for search terms - Sacramento florist, or florist Sacramento. He could have saved more money since we don't charge handling fee nor same day delivery fee and we are having a rose special this month.
