Surprising your girlfriend with flowers is a pretty sweet gesture, but this guy took it to another level with a hilarious mistake.
Houston native Jailyn had been going out with her boyfriend, Jamarcus for nearly a year when one night he surprised her at her window with a flowery gift, at least that’s what he thought it was.
She relayed her experience on Twitter,
“I was sleeping, and he woke me up by knocking on my window. I went to go open the door, and he had the lettuce in his hand with a big smile,” Jailyn said of her boyfriend’s surprise.

“I just started laughing so much. After, I hugged and kissed him. He didn’t [know] what it was until I told him it was lettuce.
My mom was right by the door, and she was laughing, too, but she also thought it was cute.”
Though the purple bunch he brought was, in fact, a form of purple kale, it’s still not what he intended, but on the plus side, it would make a great side dish for a romantic meal.
The poor guy was rightfully embarrassed, but Jailyn claimed he took it all in his stride.
“He got it from his job at a warehouse,” she explained. “He didn’t know any better but to think it was a flower, but that’s what made it really funny.”

In the days since the gaffe, her tweet has gone viral and rightfully so, it’s hysterical.
Better luck next time Jamarcus but know this, it’s the thought that counts.
