Going Overboard With The Engagement Ring

| NY, USA | Bizarre, Top, Wild & Unruly

(I work on a tour boat in New York. Some friends are on my tour. My partner of 6 years asked me to marry him yesterday, so I am excitedly showing my friends my breathtaking new engagement ring. An elderly lady has been glaring at us while I talk to them.)

Me: “I’m sorry, ma’am, can I get anything for you?”

Lady: “Did you say you’re getting married?!”

Me: “Yes, ma’am! I’m so excited!”

Lady: “You’re too young to get married!”

(Suddenly, the lady grabs my hand and rips my ring off my finger. Before anyone can do anything, she flings my ring overboard. I am in total shock while my friend screams at the lady.)

My Friend: “She’s 28!”

Lady: *suddenly all smiles* “Oh! That’s alright then. I’ll have a Coke. Thank you, dear!”

(I now have a new ring, but I never wear it to work.)
