CBS News – At the young age of 14, Hayden Godfrey learned something new in school: No girl should feel alone on Valentine’s Day. As the middle schooler witnessed students pass out $1 red, white and pink carnations to the same group of girls year after year, he watched the disappointed faces of the dozens who were left out. “I don’t like this,” he told his mom after school. “I feel really bad that things are this way.” That’s when Godfrey decided to take matters into his own hands. The next year, he anonymously sent flowers to the girls he didn’t think would get anything. “He remembers watching the girls who he sent them to and how surprised they were,” his mother, Erin Godfrey, told CBS News. The following Valentine’s Day, he bought a bunch of roses and passed them out to girls in the hall who weren’t carrying anything. When Godfrey was a high school sophomore he decided to start saving money so, one day, he could buy a flower for every girl in the school. As soon as Godfrey turned 16 he got a job at McDonald’s, working in his small hometown — Smithfield, Utah. For the past 18 months, the now 17-year-old has worked three jobs to save money to accomplish his goal. By the time he got a girlfriend, his mom thought he’d back off. But he didn’t. “He said, ‘I’m still going to do this. This isn’t about love; it’s not about the commercial side of Valentine’s — it’s about bringing joy to everybody,'” his mother recalled him saying. Three jobs, two years in school and a few paychecks later, Godfrey purchased 900 carnations for $450. On Thursday, he recruited his school drama club to help him pass out flowers to nearly 900 girls in Utah’s Sky View High School. “Today I passed out 900 carnations, one to every girl at SVHS and it was totally worth it,” Godfrey wrote on Facebook afterward. “I don’t think anything can compare to seeing every girl in your life holding a flower as they walk through the halls.” The teen believed a carnation would be the perfect Valentine’s Day flower for his girl friends: “It’s a friendship flower — a better symbol than a rose.”


toooooo theeeeee


Man what a confused boy Hayden Godfrey is. I dont think its possible to live life more backwards than he is. Working 3 jobs (sidenote: how do you have to work 3 jobs to amass 450 bucks??) and spending all of your money on 900 random ass hoes at your school. Working extra hard and spending extra money to instantly friend zone yourself to the entire female population. Congratulations, Hayden Godfrey. You are the dumbest boy in camp.

And the worst part is, this shit doesnt even work, man. Being one of the chicks that gets an “anonymous” rose from Hayden Godfrey is probably more embarrassing than not having a Valentine at all. Its like “Oh look, there goes Suzie, overweight and walking down the hallway with her Pity Flower from that weirdo Hayden Godfrey. Hope she doesnt kill herself at lunch!” Its the same thing with the Participation Trophies. You should feel like a loser if you’re going home with a Participation Trophy the same way you should feel like a loser if you’re getting a fake flower from a fake Valentine. You should go home and work out and maybe think about going to 3rd base and you’ll get yourself a real Valentine’s Day flower next year. Life is like the Bachelor – not everybody gets a rose. Only the pretty ones who are somewhat tolerable do…so shoot for that and stop settling for Hayden Godfrey’s fucking “Friendship Flowers.”
