Today, I proposed to my girlfriend with the cliché of the diamond ring in a champagne glass. Apparently there was an off-duty police officer across the room watching me slip the ring into the glass. He thought I was slipping in a date-rape drug and tackled me down before I could propose. FML

Putting a ring in food/drink is a stupid idea in the first place, there's this think called "choking". (:

Wow way to go Officer Jump the Gun. You could have always tackled him on the way out after you were sure you knew what was going on... No, I do not know why i'm talking as if the police officer is here... :P

Show it anyway

Agreed. YDI for being cliche.

So wait...he TACKLED you? All he had to do was take the glass and say "come with me." Such a dick cop. I'd report him, but that's just me.

That's what cops do in the US...

Actually, he could have ignored it(If he thought something was wrong he could have waited until they were leaving), or just asked...he is off-duty, most off-duty cops do just that... Stay off-duty. Lol. Too bad most cops in the US are dumber than a bag of rocks and can't do shit that requires common sense, unless this guy abides by the rule, "Ask questions later."

I think that's cute . he does NOT deserve it !

No cop would just tackle him. This is BS. FYL for posting a fake FML.

That's not what cops do in the US. They have protocols and don't just go around tackling civilians who don't pose an immediate threat. If an officer actually did this he could lose his job.

He's like Foc McCloud and many other characters: "Shoot first, ask questions later."

At least OP will have an interesting story to tell

if you have seen 2 and a half men then you wouldn't have done this idea!

If I was your girlfriend I would be very amused. I hope she has a sense of humor as well...

There's also this thing called "autoerotic asphyxiation", where people get off on it :]

Haha that's true but, I don't think you'd want to get off by choking at the same time you're being proposed to & in a public place too. Although I could be wrong...

OMG i am laughing so hard.

I have never heard of a case of autoerotic asphixiation that involved foreign objects lodged in one's throat...seriously dude you're trying too hard with that one.

Maybe you haven't, but you don't know what others have experienced. I knew a friend's ex who got off on having candle wax poured on her. Anything is possible.

David Carradine died on that.

I kinda agree, but I think that most people don't like chug champaign they just kinda sip it elegantly. lol idk but food......I think it's fine if it's a really small finger food kind of thing, but if it's a big plate of like spagetti of ravioli that's just dangerous because they could chip a tooth or something....lolz

At least if ya's do get married you'll always have a funny story to tell

Kinda gay im gonna call faaaake. I don't usually but it's like uuhmm.. If he was off duty.. he shouldn't be doing that.. even if he was ON duty... They wouldn't tackle you!! police have noo right to do that..

How would it be fake? Cop (on, or off-duty, it doesn't matter) sees what he thinks is a potential everyday "drug her up, fuck her, kill her, fuck her again, chop her up, and eat her" guy, and takes the guy out. Tackling people is an extreme measure, but sometimes the Rawr Rawr Raptor Pounce is what it takes in a rape situation.

Allmidnighteyes your life must be interesting. I think you are the coolest person in the room, right now. You are my hero for the next thirty seconds (12:53 am, Sept 26th)

Awwe. What about me! I'm not cool? ): -pouts-

I don't think any of that is everyday stuff... lol :P

Exactly midnight eyes or whatever your name is. Like seriously the cop had no idea what was going on, cops can't tackle you when they dont know whats going on. He didnt hurt her. He should have questioned first. Lets think realistically. Thankss.

jchansfan - My every day is most peoples' fantasy.

My fantasies are my everyday

fMYYlife, I really don't think you understand the world of police officers. YES they should probably make sure they know what's going on first in a situation like this, but think about it; if a cop saw a mugging, would he walk up to the mugger to double check that the mugger was indeed mugging someone? No, that would be stupid and could potentially cost him his life, especially if he is unarmed (if he's off-duty). Same goes for seeing a man slip a foreign substance into a drink they're woman. Drugs don't instantly affect people, they take a little time, and rapists/whatever, get their victims out of the public eye before they feel the full effect.

62- point. And plus, wouldn't you want to have a better engagement story than just, i put it in the drink. This is epic.

Now that's a memorable proposal!

At least that made it less cliche?
