Giving The Right Message

A couple getting ready to move into their new house discovered a beautiful floral bouquet on their doorstep. They looked at it and reflected on this wonderful gesture.

They were somewhat puzzled, however, when they noticed that the accompanying card bore the words: ‘Rest in Peace’.

They thought this was a mistake so they took it to the florists who apologised profusely.

Then the florist said, "We understand your concern but think of the reaction when the bereaved family get their flowers with these words on the card:
"Good Luck for wherever you're going!"
