My biggest fears as a 29-year-old red-blooded male are that I’ll go out some night and lose my wallet or my phone. The idea of having to cancel all my credit cards or doing a walk of shame to the Apple store is too much for my anxiety to handle.
But this California woman lost her damn $32,000 engagement ring at the Mineta San Jose International Airport when she was hurrying to get a fucking Uber. ABC 7 Chicago reported that Libby Dahl took her ring off her finger to wash her hands before “she hurried off to a waiting Uber car and left it behind.”
I’m not saying this sounds familiar, but I am saying that I’d be beside myself if I had a fiancee who treated my $32,000 engagement ring like it was a damn ring pop. I mean, people lose rings. Accidents happen. But she wasn’t swimming in the ocean or getting mugged in a dark parking garage. She was simply trying to ensure her Kia Soul wasn’t going to leave her behind at baggage claim because lord knows ordering another Uber is a million times more difficult than recouping the Cadillac you’re wearing on your finger.
In what I’d assume to be the cattiest voice ever, she said, “It had to be a woman that took it, and that’s extra heartbreaking because that’s someone that knew the value of it and still not want to turn it in.” She’s right, it probably was a woman that took it because she left it in the ladies room, but Vegas odds are that the ring is floating around somewhere in the bottom of her oversized Louis bag underneath a Kindle she never uses and the remnants of a Kylie Jenner lip kit.
But before you feel too bad for her, the ring is insured so all is not completely lost. Unfortunately, she is claiming that there’s sentimental value to it, but apparently not enough sentimental value that she was willing to miss her Uber to keep the heirloom in the family. .
