It can be difficult being a dutiful boyfriend but I think the majority of men could be trusted to tell the difference between flowers and a vegetable, or at least I did until I heard this story.
20-year-old Jamarcus Guilory decided to treat his girlfriend, Jailyn Hernandez, 19 by buying her a beautiful bunch of flowers after the pair had argued, Buzzfeed News reports.
A nice olive branch, I think we can all agree.

So what flowers did he get her? Lilies, Roses, Daffodils? No somehow Jamarcus managed to drop the ball completely and buy Jailyn a lettuce.
Now in Jamarcus’ defence it wasn’t an iceberg lettuce he confused for flowers it was purple kale, so at least the colouring was right.
Speaking to Mashable Jailyn explained how she reacted to her boyfriend’s cock up
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
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.
Of course the internet loved the whole thing…

Lettuce be honest this is quite the cute story!
More of a concept than a journalist, Tom Percival was forged in the bowels of Salford University from which he emerged grasping a Masters in journalism.
Since then his rise has been described by himself as ‘meteoric’ rising to the esteemed rank of Social Editor at UNILAD as well as working at the BBC, Manchester Evening News, and ITV.
He credits his success to three core techniques, name repetition, personality mirroring, and never breaking off a handshake.
