Elena Glatt, a Manhattan lawyer, is suing Posy Florists on East 72nd Street for substituting pastel pink and green hydrangeas for the rust and green ones she'd requested for her 22 wedding reception centerpieces. But she doesn't just want her $27,435.14 back—she wants damages for the "extreme disappointment, distress and embarrassment" she suffered, to the tune of more than $400,000. Florist Stamos Arakas told the AP,"My father used to tell me, 'Don't deal with the lawyers.' Maybe he was right, God bless his soul." Dad probably should have also mentioned that you should avoid dealing with insanely entitled people with borderline personality disorder and saved you the trouble of opening a flower shop on the Upper East Side in the first place, Stamos!
Also, from the coworker of Elena's who brought this story to our attention: "I work at the same firm as Ms. Elbogen-Glatt. (She's NOT popular with the admins...)" Can't imagine why not.
Intrigued by Elana's unique sense of self-worth, we decided to take a quick peek at her Bloomies' registry. Shit is intense. It's not that the goods requested are so fancy, it's the sheer volume of Wedgwood china and Vera Wang stemware that Elana and her DH put in for and then received that's staggering. And we can only hope that Elana finds some competent florists in the future to decorate her pad for the events where her guests will eat from those $325 "Nambe Mills hostess shrimp sauce bowls."
