    A small business had outgrown its facility and was going to construct a new building at another location. The person in charge of the groundbreaking ordered a floral arrangement for the occasion.

    When the crowd gathered for the event, they saw that the ribbon on the arrangement read "Rest in Peace". Everyone got a laugh out of the mistake.

    Later, someone phoned the florist and told him how everybody had gotten a chuckle out of what had happened.

    The embarrassed florist apologized and said the people at the funeral, for which that arrangement was meant, didn't take the mistake quite so well. The ribbon on their flowers read "Congratulations on Your New Location".
