Ok, so you really fucked up this time.  Not only did you forget your anniversary, which also happens to fall on her birthday (which you also forgot), but you didn’t close the front door all the way which allowed her cat to run out and get hit by a car.  It’s gonna take A LOT of flowers to make up for this one, right?  Well the San Francisco Flower Mart just might be your salvation my friend.  Here they sell flowers at wholesale to both individuals and flower retailers.  If your buying for individual use there is no problems, but if are going into the flower shop business, make sure to stop in at the office so that you can get your retailer’s badge.  You gotta be legit in the flower shop game, sucka!
