Here is an excerpt from yesterday's Boston Globe.
Okay maybe it is just me, but doesn't the below situation seem a bit sketchy. I mean what guy sends all of that stuff to a person they have never met.
Of course, there are exceptions to every rule. Take Tracey Chaney's Valentine's Day experience last year, for example.
Chaney, 32, a financial analyst with a Boston healthcare insurer, will never forget arriving on the 9th floor of her building to find her colleagues surrounding her desk.
"There was like a thousand balloons coming out of my cubicle," she said. "You could smell the roses from the elevator. Everyone was smiling at me."
The gifts were from a co-worker she hardly knew, who had also sprinkled dozens of Godiva chocolates on her desk and rose petals on the floor.
There was also a bouquet, a couple of teddy bears, four romantic cards, and an arrangement of red and white balloons.
"I was amazed" she said. "I had seen him before, but we were never introduced or anything."
At first it was a bit embarrassing, said Chaney, and not every woman in the office was happy for her. But, in the end, she said, she was impressed and that's all that mattered.
"We're still together," she sighed.
