Dear Melissa Wilson,
This notice is to inform you that, due to lack of planning on the part of your loving, yet sometimes clueless husband, the delivery of your mother's day gift will be delayed two days. We're sorry for any inconvenience this has caused as we understand the importance of mothers and we wish to honor you for all your hard work and dedication to your family. For this reason, we will be coordinating with your husband to ensure that this Sunday is a very special day for you.
Although your husband may seem remiss at times, keep in mind that this does not mean he does not love you; quite the contrary. He loves you so much that he can’t stop thinking about you all day and when he realized that mother’s day was this week, he snatched up the best gift he could find (within the budget). Unfortunately, for some odd reason, the shipment of said gift takes 6 freaking days to arrive.
At any rate, we appreciate your wonderful motherliness and we strongly recommend giving your husband a big hug when he comes home from work today because hey…he’s trying.
The Mother’s Day Team
(Isn't he adorable?)
