Ladies, I have but one request.

    If you'd like for a guy to buy you flowers, you best have a vase on-hand!

    I bought a girl flowers yesterday, and we had to break the top off of a cheap vodka bottle and use it as a vase!

    I love any thread that has a title that starts with "Ladies,"

    Save the ragged neck of that bottle. Easy to grasp... pointy and nasty on the other end...

    Pro tip, buy the vase, fill it with whatever, and stare at the guy and the vase until he gets the point.

    Real pro tip. Cut the flower-stems on the bias with a really sharp knife (Stanley knife is a great choice) and put a tablet of aspirin in the water. The diagonal slash helps get water to the blossoms, and the aspirin will help keep the blooms looking lively.

    I had so many vases at one point, I sold them at a garage sale for 10 cents a piece. My ex would send me flowers every time he screwed up, I had hundreds. And I kept telling him, don't send me roses, especially red roses, I hate florist red roses because they have no fragrance and they turn black in a few days, and they're expensive. I always got red roses.

    Not so good. Get a shipment of red roses, and think "What did you do this time, jerk?"

    :rofl: omg Evo lolollll

    I have never had a guy buy me flowers. I buy them for myself if I want any...but very seldom because I am mindful that they are slowly dying everyday just so I can look at them. I feel horrible! I haven't bought any in years unless they were growing in a pot with dirt.

    I think the only guys that have ever given me flowers are employees at a store as customer appreciation on Valentine's Day :rofl:

    My ma' keeps an empty vase on the table as a "subtle" hint! About twice a year I remember, and get her some tulips, but her reaction is so awesome that I kinda don't wanna do it too often lest the novelty wear off. :P

    Ok, I bought my wife some flowers and a vase. Out of habit, she broke off the top. At least with the vodka bottle, I could get a drink out of it.
