A guy in Kansas City endured the biggest mistake of his life recently when he attempted to propose to his girlfriend – and ended up dropping her engagement ring into a pond.
Seth Dixon had the great idea of proposing to his girlfriend Ruth on bridge in a park in Kansas City. He had the ring. He had a friend filming the proposal. And then, he fumbled – and had to watch the $3,000 ring fall through a crack in the wooden bridge and into a pond.
Seth and Ruth and a bunch of other people jumped into the pond to find the ring. No dice.
The next day, they hired someone to scan the bottom with a metal detector. No dice again.
As a last ditch effort, Seth and Ruth set up a GoFundMe page to raise money to pay for the ring. It flopped, with people pledging only $261.
Which means, Seth is stuck making payments on this ring … that’s not around Ruth’s finger. (The Kansas City Star)
