Post Roses on a First Date???

This story happened to a friend of mine:
She was on a date in the city and they were walking back to the car from the hotel. The car was parked on the street so they had like a five to ten minute walk. Whatever, not sure that was the right thing to do but what can you do parking is crazy in the city. So while they were walking a man holding a huge bundle of red roses walked over to them and handed the girl a rose and said "A rose for the pretty lady". My friend was platzing. She wished a hole would open up and swallow her. That's not the end of the story it gets even more awkward. She was holding onto the rose and they somewhat continued on their way to the car. Without even walking two steps the man says Excuse me that will be ten dollars. Now my friend is holding the rose in her hands then the boy says " What, ten bucks no way" then took it from her and gave it back to the man.
AHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHH Crazy ..............................

I dont get it, was this planned by the guy but then didnt realize how much it would cost him? If it was, then i think he was trying to impress a little too much and was not appropiate. If it was just a way for the man to get his flowers sold then I wouldn't think twice and just accept the compliment. Nothing wrong with it. (I might be a bit embarresed but only because its natural when you recieve a compliment).

Okay, first of all drop the boy. The man who handed her the roses was certainly out of line but the guy made himself look cheap. Yes, it was awkward but to give them back? That's even worst..so embarrassing! and 2funny, I don't think the date planned anything at all! The guy was trying to sell them so he stuck them in the girls hand!!! It sounds way more embarrassing to hand the flowers back and he should have handed the guy $10. Yes the flower man was wrong but he was on a date and he should have acted differently.

Oy vey, Oy vey... I just wanna cry when I hear these things... I HATE it when we're stopped on the street (usually in Manhattan) and some guy wants to give us a balloon or do a trick or give me a flower and then expects my date to pay for it. It is TOTALLY cringable....
I find though, that I just try to not accept anything at all, I don't accept the balloon, or flower or whatever and just say no thank you. If my date wants me to have it, then he will insist and quietly ask the seller how much it costs etc. Only then would I accept it from the seller.
So my advice is- don't accept anything from anyone- not even when they are shoving it in your face. Just politely move away and say no thank you. Keep your hands in your pockets so they can't place anything in your hand.
