Failed Proposal

Recommended Posts

LONDON (Reuters) - It is the one moment every man wants to get right -- and which London floor-fitter Lefkos Hajji could hardly have got more wrong.

 

The luckless 28 year-old's dreams of giving his sweetheart, Leanne, 26, the ultimate proposal have literally vanished into thin air. Hajji, of Hackney, east London, had concealed a $12,000 engagement ring inside a helium balloon. The idea was that she would pop the balloon as he popped the question.

 

But as he left the shop, a gust of wind pulled the balloon from his hand and he watched the ring -- and quite possibly the affections of his girlfriend -- sailing away over the rooftops.

 

"I couldn't believe it," he told The Sun newspaper. "I just watched as it went further and further into the air. "I felt like such a plonker. It cost a fortune and I knew my girlfriend would kill me."

 

Hajji spent two hours in his car trying to chase and find the balloon, without success.

 

"I thought I would give Leanne a pin so I could literally pop the question," he said. "But I had to tell her the story -- she went absolutely mad. Now she is refusing to speak to me until I get her a new ring."

 

He is hoping the ring will still turn up. "It would be amazing if someone found it," he added.

Yea, complete dumbass thing to do with a ring that expensive. Sweet idea, but come on- wrap that freaking thing around your wrist all the way up to the balloon and tie it in a knot, for crying out loud.

 

But the girls response sucks too----- no matter how disappointed I would be if I were in her shoes, I would not have responded like that.... what a bitch... she's got some screwed up priorities if she's refusing to speak to him until she gets a new ring.

That is crazy! I would have tied that balloon around my wrist in a double, no triple knot. It would be amazing if he ever saw that ring again.

Threadjack, but Maria how is it possible you have no karma? Have you tried to steal points? If our theories about karma are right, you should have a bunch of it. Have you ever donated points? Originally I thought karma came from donating points.

 

Sorry, I have an obsession with getting to the bottom of the whole karma thing.

seriously! What is wrong with that girl?!?!?! Demanding a new ringhuh.gif I do NOT like her. I mean, he was dumb, but he really was trying to be sweet. And she gets pissed. She and I would not be friends.

Awww...poor guy- with her response he too should fly away. It may end up that the $12,000 was a cheap way to get out of that relationship as divorce can be much more expensive!
