Why in heaven's name did somebody just stick it in your purse without telling you?

You probably should have at least checked with somebody before assuming it was fake

Time to find the little girl and adopt her. Or you could go Gollum on her ring finger.

Guess it didn't ring a bell.... I'm lonely

Unless the kid thought it was a ring pop and ate the ruby. Then you are going to have to go to plan #2... Badum Tss...

It's generally a good idea to give away unfamiliar jewellery to strangers. Especially to little girls because when you ask for it back, no one would think you're being a jerk.

Biting a little girl's finger off might be a little extreme...

You probably shouldn't have given it to a random kid. At least give your little girl (If you have one) the ring. Good luck getting it back OP.

Honestly, I don't make a habit of checking the value of various doodads I find. What probably happened was that OP found the ring, thought it was fake and moved on. Later, encountering the little girl, she gives her the ring because she has no use for it. It isn't likely all that much thought was put into it, it was just a simple act of kindness. If OP had never found out the value of the ring, they probably wouldn't think twice about the ring they found in their purse that day

#44, checking values for random stuff like a typewriter isn't common. Checking the value for a piece of jewelry before you give it away would be common sense.

I spy someone who shouldn't comment.

I spy with my little eye a guy who just got roasted.

I spy two dudes posing the exact same way for their selfie. By the way, look up when you hit the button. You can check to see if it's a good pic afterwards.

Yeah really, I don't think this is OPs fault at all.

I think that when OP would notice it, they would know what it was and was meant as a surprise for her to have.

What if OP lost their purse, not knowing the ring was in there? For something with that kind of value and sentiment you tell someone first and put it somewhere safe. I often lose stuff in my bag, so I wouldn't have found it for about a year.

Why in heavens would you give a random ring you find in your own purse away because you assume it's fake? What logic or reasoning could possibly be involved there? YDI

I have gumball machine rings in my purse all the time. It would make perfect sense for me to just give them away.

#31, if someone randomly tossed a ring in my purse it would never see daylight ever again.

Easy solution to that: adopt the little girl.

She trusted you by dropping it in your purse without telling you? I feel like your family's communication skills are lacking. Even Bilbo did across the courtesy of having Gandalf explain it.

*Frodo. Not "across."

My exact thoughts.

The ring is already gone. So when in the plot could this "twist" take place?

29: At the very beginning when grandma received the ring. It was never real in the first place.

You may not have the gold anymore but you've got some 24 karat stupidity.

I'd do the same thing. who just puts random stuff in someone's purse without telling them? that's weird. kind of their fault for not telling you who's it was and why it was in there.

This is funny.
