Today, I spent nearly an hour helping a customer pick out an engagement ring. I rang him up, picked out a super cute box for the ring, and wished him luck. Later I realized I never put the ring inside the box. FML

Regardless of if they shouldn't, they will. This is due to the imperfect memory of humans. As well as the large number of distractions in a busy store.


Trust me, I know. I'm not saying anything bad against OP, everyone makes mistakes. Maybe I'm just naturally paranoid, but whenever I'm doing something with my job that's important, I always double check everything. :P

I would hope that the guy would check the box a half a dozen times before attempting to propose.

And OP, most jewelry stores require the customer to provide name, address, phone number and email address. Can't you look the customer up and call him?? PS OP, you should be a lot more attentive. That's a HUGE mistake to make. Hopefully you'll pay better attention in the future. YDI.

he posted on here and while i was moderating the FMLs i came across this

Today, I proposed to my darling girlfriend of 3 years. She was so excited until I presented the engagement ring to her at which point she looked rejected. THERE WAS NO RING IN THE BOX!!! Now she thinks I was just copying Knocked Up and refuses take my proposal seriously, thanks KilledTheMoment. FML

im not even joking either!

If he's worried about it, he'll probably check the box before proposing, so hopefully OP hasn't ruined the biggest moment of this poor sap's life so far.

If he decides to return the ring - that will be the biggest and happiest day of his life. Whether he messes up a proposal does not matter: if he hears "yes" it will mess up his life. So, the salesperson just increased man's chances of hearing "no" and, maybe, saved him an ocean of grief
