One of the things that many of us enjoy doing is getting outside and gardening. It doesn’t matter if we are growing vegetables, bushes, or flowers, there is something enjoyable about working in the ground and watching things grow.
That is what Molly Quell had in mind when she ordered some plants for her garden. As a reporter, she was accustomed to sharing things that were a bit unusual but now she had something to share of her own. When they delivered her plants, she had around 5500 ft.² of greenery available.
Once this happened, Molly went on Twitter to post about the misunderstanding. It went viral, especially when you hear about how many plants she ordered versus how many she received.
She wrote: “So, we ordered 51 trays of plants to install on our shed’s new green roof. We just got a phone call from the company. They are delivering 510 square meters.”
The tweet was only online for a short amount of time before it started gathering steam. After seeing that people were interested in what happened, she did what any good reporter would do and started giving more information.
She explained that the delivery company started unloading the trees and plants, even though she and her boyfriend were telling him to stop. The order ended up being so large that it was on two different delivery trucks.
The problem was, none of the delivery drivers wanted to take responsibility for what was happening, and they started pointing the finger at each other. The neighbors were complaining about the street being blocked and Molly was there to provide us with updates as they occurred.
Once someone from the company showed up, they even asked if one of the neighbors wanted a green roof! It took a lot of arguing and the delivery of a crane and a number of delivery trucks, but sooner or later, all of the order was taken back.
I guess all’s well that ends well!SKM: below-content placeholder
