Darn right! 1-800-Flowers is indeed "not responsible for an individual's personal conduct". There is nothing in the privacy policy that is against revealing the details of the transaction to the legal partner as a third party (marriage is a legally binding contractual partnership). The flower company didn't "cause the divorce". Leroy Greer the Idiot did and since he has more money than brains, $300,000 doesn't seem to be too high a price. LOL serves the moron right.

This man is suing the florist for breach of privacy. This seems to be a valid lawsuit to me. The florist had no right to send a third party a copy of HIS receipt. While I agree with the comment that the company is not responsible for his personal conduct, they are responsible for complying with the privacy policy of the company. Sending someone else a copy of the receipt was a violation of their own policies. These policies are put into place so that a person doing business with a company can be assured of the fact that their purchase is only known to the people that they choose to make aware of it.

Too many people now days are always looking for an excuse to sue hoping for that big payday check. I doubt if this one holds water in a court of law. Now there be an out of court settlement which also would be unreal. I didn't theink the coffee spill from McDonalds would go through but..... HAPPY POSTINGS FROM GRANDPA BOB !!~

I think he is just "sue happy". In another TV segment on this case the Flower Company said they were not responsible for a customer's personal activities. I think he is a very good example of wasting the court's time with "frivolous lawsuits"

this is a good one, thanks for highlighting it. well, the company was just doing it's usual duty in sending a thank you note to its customers. I'm surprised that the wife didn't know that there was a third party (literally) involved. it just amazes me how many men lie through their teeth when their wives ask point blank 'is there someone else'. of course they don't take kindly to it when they find out that they have been blatently lied to. i think he deserves to pay more alimony, if nothing, for his plain stupidity.

It does seem like a breach of contract, that the company divulged information to the man's wife, which he clearly wanted to keep from her. They did have that privacy policy. He should have paid cash for the flowers, and then he wouldn't have had so much trouble later. I don't blame the wife for asking for more money now. He probably never treated her so good. I wonder when the last time was that he bought her flowers?

We do not have the copy of 1-800 flowers privacy policy to comment if they breeched the policy or not. It sounds like they did breech the policy. I do not think the man should sue for 1 million dollars, he was getting a divorce, whats the big deal.
