OK, to preface this story, we live in a pretty affluent school district (of course since my DH is in police work, we are the po foks!) and to a couple of my girls, $ is no problem at all. Soooo, we were bridging last night and one of my girl's mom had lost the center and 2 of the petals. Our shop was out of the individual yellows and the mom said her girl would be devastated if she didn't have them all for the ceremony. Her DH is traveling, she is in a cast 'cuz of ankle surgery 2 weeks ago, sooooo, the mom calls a courier to go to the shop and pick up the entire set of petals and bring them to her. The 3 petals she was missing cost her over $50!!! I busted out laughing when she told me, and she has a great sense of humor so she laughed too! If it had been me????? I probably would have "created" one and glued it on her smock!!! Too funny

LOL!! I think I would have done just as you probably would have. Cut out paper petals and glued them on. Either that or cut the pics out of my Daisy leader handbook!

OMG, that is totally outrageous! I'll try to remember that next time I'm grumping about being taken advantage of by what I think of as my more wealthy families. NO ONE in my neighborhood is that well-to-do! (thank goodness!)

Will she sell her extras on Ebay or just throw them away?
