Well.. agreed on the lack of creativity (A running shoe? really? "Oh cool! A diamond in my footsweat!"), but I do think your girlfriend lied, because, really, first of all, the difference between a ring and a rock is pretty noticable, and besides, would you remember if you threw a rock out of your shoe a couple of hours earlier? I wouldn't. Most people wouldn't. Only if it was a "memorable" rock, and if it was, she would have noticed that it was a ring... I don't want to call fake, because that defeats the purpose of fmylife, but well, yeah, you catch my drift.
The creativity of the poster is fine. She likes to run, so she would look there, and it's a spot you wouldn't expect. The reason this is a valid FML is because of how ridiculous it is that the girlfriend would throw something out of her shoe that was a ring; not many stones have a circle with a sharp area on top. And furthermore, if you empty your shoe, you don't look away, you look in the shoe. Otherwise, you wouldn't know if you really got whatever was bothering you out.
Well, listen, the ring didn't have to be on its lonesome-- a box for an engagement ring is small enough to fit in a shoe unless the shoe's like size 2 or something. That would probably look more like a rock than the ring itself, and when you're concentrating on something else, selective attention gets the better of you.
You are seriously the dumbest idiot in the world. What made you think that was going to turn out to be a good idea at all?
That was a stupid place to hide it. She could've stepped on it and broke it, too.
