    Talking $12,000 engagement ring flies off in helium balloon

    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.

    FUCK THAT BITCH! FUCK HER FUCK HER FUCK HER!

    What a snot. Instead of feeling sorry for the poor bastard who was trying to do something nice, she wants to heap it on, huh? Ugh.

    He got off easy. For $12000, he learned 2 lessons. First -- his girlfriend is greedy, selfish bitch. Second -- don't do stupid stunts with $12000 rings! (I can see the idea; I'd have done something with a fake ring, and either a palm switch or give her the real one afterwards.)

    That is ridiculous. He better not still want to get married to her. If he does, he's stupid.

    As someone else said....he learned a very valuable lesson for $12,000.

    Which is almost certainly less than 50% of his worth when he found out a few years from now.

    I hope he gets the ring back; million to one shot, but I hope he gets it back and sells it, while kicking that stupid bitch right to the curb.

    I'm thinking you were the first to call her a bitch.

    Not that I profile or anything, but I bet she is the type who would cry & ball when stopped and given a traffic citation or 2 and then see you in court and have her dad as the lawyer who bought the judge lunch.
