As you've heard me complain, in December all medical practices get trays of food and/or flowers from different ancillary businesses, thanking them for their support in the past year.
So one busy mid-December morning a delivery guy dropped off a HUGE floral arrangement on the front counter. Since it was busy, and the flowers were pretty, the staff just left them there.
Oncology clinics are never cheerful places, but that morning there seemed to be a larger-than-usual number of patients and their families crying in the lobby. But nobody mentioned anything to the staff, so work went on as usual.
Sometime in the early afternoon a secretary took the flowers back to the break room, so the rest of the staff could enjoy them.
At that point they realized the side of the display that had been facing the lobby had a large note that said:
"Thank you for your referrals over the past year. From the staff at Local Mortuary."
