    LONDON (Reuters) - It is the one moment every man wants to get right -- and which London floor-fitter Lefkos Hajji could hardly have got more wrong.

    The luckless 28 year-old's dreams of giving his sweetheart, Leanne, 26, the ultimate proposal have literally vanished into thin air.

    Hajji, of Hackney, east London, had concealed a $12,000 engagement ring inside a helium balloon. The idea was that she would pop the balloon as he popped the question.

    But as he left the shop, a gust of wind pulled the balloon from his hand and he watched the ring -- and quite possibly the affections of his girlfriend -- sailing away over the rooftops.

    "I couldn't believe it," he told The Sun newspaper.

    "I just watched as it went further and further into the air.

    "I felt like such a plonker. It cost a fortune and I knew my girlfriend would kill me."

    Hajji spent two hours in his car trying to chase and find the balloon, without success.

    "I thought I would give Leanne a pin so I could literally pop the question," he said.

    "But I had to tell her the story -- she went absolutely mad. Now she is refusing to speak to me until I get her a new ring."

    He is hoping the ring will still turn up.

    "It would be amazing if someone found it," he added.
    ------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------
    Romantic gesture=good. Helium balloon and wind=bad.
    Reminds me of the movies where some guy puts the ring in a glass or food and it gets swallowed.

    True, but if you were going to marry someone that made a huge financial purchase and then did something as stupid as this I would be mad too. I don't like the fact about her demanding a new ring, especially if she wants one as expensive. I could never see any reason to spend that much money on a ring no matter how much I love the other person. I would rather save the money for a house down-payment or something viable to being in a marriage.

    Poor guy. She doesn't sound very nice; I'd probably just be amused by his failure or the fact that it's something stupid I would do.

    She should'nt be mad at him though, his heart was in the right place. I thought it's the thought that counts, and women shouldnt be concerned with materialistics when it comes to true love.

    I think she should feel bad for him , and be like awwwe, it's ok , i still ove ya, no ring will ever.....

    I love how the focus is on the bitch gf and not the idiot bf who came up with the Charlie Chaplin idea. Only a complete dope would do this and not make absolutely sure he couldn't lose the balloons before he left the store.

    Man, he bought her a fucking 12,000 ring! That's metal and diamonds. Instead of being sympathetic or understanding, she's being a huge bitch. I wouldn't take that crap from someone I just spent 12,000 on. I say he fucks off and finds someone who appreciates him for him and not material possessions.

    Who needs a $12,000 ring anyway? Jeez, talk about overkill. I want someone to propose with a candy ring pop thing. That'd be awesome.

    Now see, if y'all had concealed carry laws, he coulda just shot the balloon to get the ring back.

    And then pistol-whipped that materialistic, whore-bitch, would-be fiancee.

    From her reaction, it is probably a good thing that he lost the ring. He was stupid to lose it the way he did, but he would be even dumber if he got that witch another ring.

    (I'm kidding)
    I really wish people would stop saying things before I say them.

    I'd like to be the one that finds it. Seriously. I'd make him give me a reward for it.

    Poor guy. Maybe he ends up marrying someone else. She doesn't sound to deserving.

    Even if you were calling me a bitch, I don't think I'd have taken it personally. Heck, I probably wouldn't have even checked this thread again except I saw Liokaiser venture out of his usual stomping grounds AND Jux posted in another thread.

    Maybe this is a blessing in disguise. I mean, to demand another ring, come on!
    And 12 grand on a ring, that's retarded. I rather spend that amount on a vacation/honeymoon together instead.
