I think OP does deserve it, she totally ruined his plans, she should have just put it back in the pocket and kept her mouth shut.

Yes she could have put it back in the pocket but everyone has to remember it was still in his pants when she was doing the laundry it's not like she was snooping around and discovered it! so it's his own fault for not putting it someplace safe. Also you can't blame her for thinking he would propose to her on the spot she got excited when she saw the ring and just couldn't wait.

But... if she put it back in his pocket, that would mean throwing it into the washing machine wouldn't it..? It's her boyfriend's fault for being careless and leaving it in his pocket.

she may have not intentionally found it, but in the same way, should a kid who finds his xmas present in their parents closet, weeks before xmas, notify their parents? no, they get secretly excited and keep their mouth shut. unfortunately it wouldnt be a very big surprise for OP regardless, but it doesn't mean she shouldve made it "anticlimactic" for him as well. For all we know he could planned something huge. if so, I wouldn't have expected any guy in that position to pull something

Even if it wasn't intentional, why the Heck would you go to the person and expect to be asked? "I found the ring; don't worry you have permission, you may ask me now." She pretty much demanded that he ask her because "she was excited" and that's not right.

I have an idea girls. Next time you find a ring box in your boyfriends pocket, remove it, finish the laundry, return it to its original spot, then wait for him to ask so you don't ruin it.

Or just not wash that pair of pants. Taking it out and putting it back after washing would make it pretty obvious she found it.

She could have put all the laundry in the laundry basket with those pants on top so they were visible and told him she was going to do his laundry. Then asked him to give her a hand causing him to be near the washing machine when she suddenly exclaims, "oh, there's something in your pocket," at which he hopefully stops her from taking it out and "discovering" it. If he doesn't stop her it then becomes his problem. If he does stop her, then she can pretend she doesn't know abo

Not to sound ridiculous, but there was a movie (I think it was "He's Just Not That into You) in which a guy asked his girlfriend to wash his pants knowing she would find the ring and that's how he proposed. So maybe it's not OP's fault.

What's wrong with not washing the pants? I doubt that it smelled like a dump truck that very second. Maybe she could have "forgotten" to clean them, which would give him enough time to get the ring. I have forgotten so many things in my scrubs (iPod, pens, USB flash drives, etc that luckily survived the wash) so forgetting a ring isn't THAT horrible of a crime. Expecting someone to propose to you on the spot is a bit much.

27- Unless, of course, she is an inordinately proactive laundry machine like my grandma was, who would literally go through my drawers to see if there were any dirty clothes when I was staying with her. If she is, it is one hundred percent her own fault. It is also her fault for thinking it was logical that if she rushed over to him with it in her hands that he would propose. If only her brain would have been bigger than the ring it all could have been avoided.

OP so deserves this. As soon as she found the ring she should have put it back and acted like nothing happend. Also the fact that she expects the bf to propose and carry out what he had planned is insane. He probally had somthing special planned but you ruined it YDI

Reply

She could have left his pants on the bed and not doing his laundry...I guess he owns more than a set of pants...

Hey op you ruined it for him , should put it back and let him do it , bloke prob had something special planned and you f ed it up , deserve it I'm afraid

Reply

I agree, OP did ruin it for him and I'm pretty sure he was upset about it. He may have had a special plan if she hadn't approached him with the ring

Reply

But she was doing laundry....you shouldn't put a ring through the laundry! He should've been smarter and more careful about it, I mean it should be more important to him

Reply

Hm. Douchery at it's finest, yes? She ruined the surprise and yet you're saying the boyfriend is in the wrong. Fantastic, your train of thought is.

Well he might have had a romantic plan that the OP ruined. She should have just left it in his pocket and waited for him to propose at the right moment.

Reply

But he left it in his pants and she was doing the laundry. Was she supposed to just do the laundry with the ring still in his pants?

Reply

What were you expected to do after you found it? Throw it back in his pocket and wash it? Or just walk up to him and hand him the box saying "found this in your pants." Either way its a bad move. FYL OP.

Reply

And if she was doing all the laundry that day, it still would have been obvious to him that she found the ring.

Reply

Actually if she knew what it was she should've left the pants alone and let him surprise her. Its her own fault tbh

Reply

Seriously. I mean Imagine going through all the trouble of planning, say, a surprise party for someone just so they could come up to you the day before the party and say, "i know u spent days planning this for me, and all of ur efforts have gone to waste." same scenario here. She shoulda just pretended she never saw anything.

Reply

The only problem is, what does she do with it, put it through the wash? If she took it out he would know she knew. Maybe wash the jeans, put them away and put the ring back in? I'd say OP was just caught up in the moment. I understand that the boyfriend might have been annoyed that it hadn't gone as it planned but boy did that ever have romantic potential. OP might have also wondered if his plan was to have her find it.

He's a guy. He didn't intend for her to find it. He made a mistake. If he bought a ring, clearly he'd been planning a proposal. She should've left the ring in the pants and washed something else. Then he could've proposed without her ruining it for both of them.

It's op fault. Maybe the guy was going to do his own laundry and she did it without him knowing or thinking about the ring in the pocket.

It's definitely the boyfriend's fault for leaving the ring in his pocket. But the OP really shouldn't have confronted him about it and ruined whatever surprise he had planned. No wonder he responded the way he did. He was probably waiting for a special moment and the OP ruined it. :(

Reply

I'm still hung up on "she's a girl, she got excited and all rational judgement has gone out the window" You're saying all girls just turn into mindless bimbos whenever they get excited? Lovely.

Reply

She didn't mean too, she was doing HIS laundry, like she probably always does. He should've hidden it better

Reply

131- I agree, that's kind of insulting. I usually keep my head, regardless of excitement. At least enough to not ruin a surprise my boyfriend planned.

Reply

133, it's quite sexist to assume she ALWAYS does the washing. I currently live with my boyfriend and we share the washing cus he feels like he has to do his bit. Also, when doing washing I don't just do mine I do whatever is in the basket to be done. It's a waste of time doing them separate just because they're not yours. :)

Reply

No, #33. It's OP's fault. She should have just kept her damn mouth shut and not said anything about it. The proposal is a really important part in your first steps to getting married. If its not romantic, and it's just boring and stupid the way OP made it, chances are the marriage will be too. It's her fault. Proposals need to be romantic and amazing. NOT the way OP ended up making it.

Reply

That was quite possibly the dumbest string of sentences I've ever seen put together, 149; I sincerely hope there was some kind of satirical joke in there. That really takes away from your valid point that, yes, the OP was definitely to blame here.

Reply

149: tell that to my parents. My dad couldn't afford a fancy proposal so it was simple and sweet. Still together 19 years later. Tell that to my friends parents. Her dad spent tons of money proposing to her mom. Big fancy thing. Now they're divorced. You sound like the type of girl who has such high expectations for her man to meet that NOTHING they do will make you happy. Life isn't like the movies. If you love someone, you don't care how it happens, just that it does.

Reply

OP's fault. She should have just waited for him to propose. Ohh wait its very hard to wait these days isn't it. SMH

Reply

hey no one spoiled anything okay everyone better PIPE THE FUCK DOWN okay this could have gone one of both ways in a different perspective what if the boyfriend knows she does the laundry left it in his pant pocket and wanted he to find it and when she put it back it he freaked now obviously that didnt happen but still think why would she put the ring box back in the pocket and then into the wash?!?! what sense does that make?!?! zerooooo so yea i think her way was exceptional

Reply

Hey, that's not fair! She's helping him out by doing shared laundry, and it is extra effort to check pockets but she checked anyway so his phone/cards wouldn't get wreaked! Poor kid :-(
