He should just tell her that she's lucky to be dating an American and that is her payment. Let's see how that goes over.
Yeah the email is pretty lame. She should have talked to you in person or at least over the phone. Emails scream passive-aggressiveness. It's what you send a coworker you're annoyed with, not a boyfriend. That being said if it was a couple of weeks ago it's understandable that she could be frustrated and wanted this resolved. Some people are just super anal about money in a relationship. Hopefully the flowers go over well and at least now you know how she is when it comes to these things and can try to avoid the issue in the future.

Don't post poop!
Her email is written like a Nigerian scammer.
Best way to talk about money: Don't talk about money.
When my wife moved in with me several years ago, we split the rent and all other expenses. Everything came out of my checking account. She received all of the bills and deposited a check for her half each month. I never audited the amounts I was receiving.
After marriage, the accounts merged and I don't even look at the statements. She is a Finance Major and handles everything. The only thing we discuss are big purchases which are rare and usually involve me saying "can we afford it?" "Yes?" "Buy it."
After reading through this thread, I realized that you owe her money. Holy Christ, how does any self respecting man let that happen?
The Doctor is in:
No way, I call your wife sweet-tits too!
Seriously. Why did it take more than one page for somebody to ask about this?

She was going to the mall. She didn't have time for a face to face.
And Dr. Phil weighs in...
That is her nickname so I'm not surprised.
This. Joint checking rules. But we also happen to make the exact same amount of money, so that's pretty easy.
It was her idea I'll bet. Sucker.
-1 for no pics of gf.
It's not an issue of money; it's the way she discusses it. Most guys would wince when reading these types of things:
"hate reminding you about this but what is fair is fair".
I'm going to cut my loses and I would say you need to give $250.
Maybe you forgot but
You paid for some too but they were very minimum.
So, do you agree? I'm a fair person
I should have reconciled this the first day we got back, but was waiting on statements to make it easier. I'll own that screw-up.
I hate discussing money. I was more than happy at reimbursing her more than what I owed her since she was the one carrying the foreign currency, but now we're both mad. I'll take my medicine this time around and send her flowers, but these types of things wear you out after awhile. It's probably why I'm not married, yet.

Make sure you give her a card with an unnecessarily long explanation of why you got the flowers for her including several accusations of trust issues.
make sure you get a receipt and be sure to ask her for at least 50% of the costs of those flowers before handing over the flower to her...since you're such a cheapskate and all.
Is she normally crazy?
Wait, person one was the chick? And no one has suggested surprise anal yet?
My wife is a cunting whore.
Why didn't you go on line and get the statements?
She will get all of the enjoyment out of the flower purchase, i think 80% of the fee is perfect.
What is fair is fair....and i hear she is a fair person
Did you guys eat any guinea pigs?
You need to decide who is Pizarro and who is Atahualpa in this relationship.
That's racist. Italian pigs.
