Engagement ring disappears into thin air

Engagement Ring balloon storyI applaud any man who actually comes up with a creative idea to pop the question.  But if you come up with a new idea, don’t screw it up.  A London floor installer Lefkos Hajji came up with a good one that flew out of his hands.

The unlucky 28 year-old’s dreams of giving his chosen one, Leanne, 26, the perfect engagement proposal 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 (creative, kudos!).

But as he left the shop, a gust of wind pulled the balloon from his hand and he watched the engagement ring begin to sail away over the rooftops. He didn’t assume that the love of his girlfriend would vanish in the same way once she found out.

“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 vehicle 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.

What do you think the chances are of:
1. The ring actually being found?
2. The finder of the ring to search for it’s owner?

Come on, this is England, their going to pawn it off. So the big question is should this guy find another woman or buy another ring?
