    Default Honey, will you marry... Oh. Never mind...

    Why use helium ballons????



    Fri Mar 14, 10:48 AM ET


    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.

    Perhaps this is a gentle message from God, lovingly stating:
    "Don't marry the bitch, numb-nuts!"

    He was Indian, what else do you expect. Shud have rather concealed the ring in a bowl of curry.

    Great. His future "mother in law" swallows it, or worse yet chokes on it during the festive dinner announcing the engagement. Then again, considering the charming nature of both my "mother-in-laws"...

    Uh, if that's really her attitude, you may want to think twice about it.

    Sounds like the ring means more to her than he does. Poor guy should probably rethink that whole marriage thing. At least to this one.

    Maybe he is a plonker. If I had a $12,000 ring inside a helium balloon I would have tied the string around my wrist. Then again, the wife-to-be sounds like a plonker too.

    I agree. I'd say the lost ring is $12,000 well spent if it shows him her true character!

    I would have tied it to my 'standing hampton'!

    Nice! What a whore! She should be so lucky to get a 12K ring especially considering the guy had to save for 10 years on a 7-11 salary!

    if he's got 12 large to spend on a ring I imagine he's got a better gig then most of us.

    I know when I bought my wife her ring I protected that thing like my life depended on it, I sure as hell wasn't gonna throw in an f-ing balloon. Can't blame his girlfriend for being pissed. The stupid fuck just lost 12 grand.

    Mark my words. Someone is going to find that ring. It might be inside a fish or in Belgium or something but someone is going to find that ring.
