Dumb Guy

This little story below tells me that Romance is a dying ideal, Ok so the guy thought he was doing something memorable for his love and a great story to tell his unborn children one day. But what it really tells of is not his dumb / nervous flummoxed idea of a proposal but of the reaction of his 'fiancee' - what ever happened to I want to spend the rest of my days with you because of you and not a rock? Clearly the biggest loss is that of his retarded emotions to the materialist wench he bought it for..

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 6,000-pound 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.

The fact she was cross with him says it all - he may be a fool, but he was a sweet fool.

I cant fault the guy for trying - we all are guilty of clumsiness on a grand scale but get a new woman man

Dear lord, that is a tragic story. Did he really not consider what would happen if he let go of the balloon? Did she really get so mad as to not talk with him? Are a fool and his money so easily parted? hewboy.

Stupid woman. And he wasn't very clever, either. I also am not quite sure what the engagement ring is supposed to mean, other than "i bought you".

When i got engaged i refused a ring, telling future hubby i only wanted a simple band on the day we got married. We saved the engagement ring money and bought things we actually needed. Diamonds are just rocks. Big deal.
