Today, my proposal to my girlfriend was supposed to be exactly when the ball dropped at midnight. Unfortunately my mother called her at 11:55pm to ask her if she liked the ring. FML

I guess you could say that OP's mum really dropped the ball with this one.

Oh well it happens. Happy new year to you (hopefully she said yes)

I feel like that might have been purposeful.

Some people can't keep a secret, or maybe her clock is fast

I was kinda thinking that too. If it was that's really messed up on his mom's part. Op I hope she said yes :)

But if you think about it all she had to do was watch the ball drop on tv to know exactly when he proposed

She might not have been able to hear you when the ball dropped though!

if he got down on one knee with a ring in his hand... i don't think she needs to hear that

Way to drop the ball mom! Happy new year anyhow op. Hope she said yes regardless.

a happy surprise for a happy new year but maybe you should've not Todd your mom about proposing to her and surprised her too after midnight. But still I hope you two have a great life together

Ugh it's so frustrating when people ruin plans, but I guess she was just excited for you. Hope the proposal went well :)
