FTD stands for Fucked This Delivery (Part the First in what promises to be a Continuing Saga)

SO.

I figure 'hey, I have summat of a beau, it would be appropriate to provide flowers on Valentine's Day'. So I go to ftd.com and place an order.
I place an order in the neighborhood of $70, figuring I'm paying for the fact that I am REALLY placing the order late.

The charge for the order turns up on my debit card statement the next day as 'pending'- cool! it's worked! I think. And then no, it vanishes- never turns up on the statement as a committed transaction.
well, shit, I say to myself- and make other arrangements.

Today, I check my statement.
NOT ONLY
did I get billed
BUT
the flowers were unseen by the resident of the appropriate address,
AND ALSO
the charge placed on my card is $15 more than what FTD's website thinks they charged me.

BUT!
I found their cunningly-hidden 'contact us' information on their website, and am currently on hold with their customer service line.

Hold time?
86:03 and counting.

What.
The Fuck...

HOLY SHIT, they HUNG UP ON ME.
