Why can't stuff like this ever happen to me?

"An anonymous gift-giver left a $15,000 diamond engagement ring to the owner of an unlocked car in western Massachusetts with a typed note hinting at a broken heart. "Merry Christmas. Thank you for leaving your car door unlocked. Instead of stealing your car I gave you a present. Hopefully this will land in the hands of someone you love, for my love is gone now. Merry Christmas to you," the note said." http://news.yahoo.com/s/nm/20051216...jXZDEwZ.3QA;_ylu=X3oDMTA3NW1oMDRpBHNlYwM3NTc- 2.

Such romanticism seems so rare today. Also, it's amusing that the author is so Boston-centric that 30 miles west of Boston is considered "western Mass." 8.

yeah... uh, westborough is east of Worcester, which is like, defined to be central MA, heh.

that's a really sad story though. poor guy. can you imagine being so heart broken that you'd give up 15k like that? wow. i've done some craziness, but not like that.

I feel sort of guilty everytime i think of this now, but when i was a bit younger, i went around a parking lot looking for unlocked cars too... i didn't steal stuff either, i just opened them to freak the owners out. i realized though that maybe someone else could've stolen stuff after me... or maybe they left diamond rings too... yeah! i was doing everyone a favor. whew, do i feel better now.

One time I found a \$20 dollar bill laying on the ground folded up at the mall and I was so freaking happy. Then when I got home I should it to everyone, but then when I unfolded it turned out to be fake! There was a message in the center of the bill that said something like: "Disapointed? Jesus can help blah blah blah go to so and so church." Cheap, but effective method of advertizing.

Ooh, I think I'd have had to go to the church and leave the bill in the collection basket with the note altered to read, "Disappointed? Don't try to lure in congregants with cash."

I feel so sad for someone who is so heartbroken to just give away an engagement ring like that. I guess it's better than those who just throw them into a lake or something. Can you imagine being to the point in a relationship where you're ready to propose, already have the ring, and then get blind-sided when she dumps you? Or maybe it was something more tragic and she died. How depressing to think about it.
