Had lunch in the rotating restaurant in CN-tower with my husband and grandma today. Two tables away a younger couple had lunch with an older couple. The older woman asked the younger one if she could see her wedding band. She took it off and dropped it, straight into the part of the restaurant that rotates and it feel through the gaps and under the floor. It was awful! We tried to help them find it but the ring was gone. Her husband even got his hand pinched as he tried to feel for it. The manager came and told them they’ll send someone into the crawlspace (like a 40 cm high one) tomorrow morning to look for it… but you could tell she had given up on it and was just trying to keep it together. Her husband was livid. Really, really, hope they find it and I certainly learnt a lesson – never ever take off your ring outside your home!

@eocenia: Omg, so upsetting! If it were me I probably wouldn’t be able to hold it together in the restaurant!

@eocenia: Yikes! Only place outside home I take my rings off is at the gym when doing push-ups…. But I stay away from 40 cm crawl spaces. Poor lady!

@eocenia: EEKK!!! Poor thing. Yep good advice, better to stick your hand in front of someones face and show them that way then to take it off!

@CanadianBride456: I know, I felt so bad for her! She really did a good job of holding it together though, had it been me I would still have been in the restaurant bathroom bawling. Her husband was so upset though. In the end he even told the manager she could keep the ring if they would find it as it now was cursed… :/
@mrsmay07: Really. Next time someone asks to see my ring I’ll definitely not take it off (as I tend to do), I’ll just extend my hand for them to see.

@Mrs. Mouse: Definitely! I sure hope they had done that, but it wasn’t really the time to ask. Also, they were visiting from Belgium – what an awful start to a trip!
@MrsNewDay: 40 cm crawlspace and a room that can hold 400 guest… Total nightmare.
@Charbelle: And that’s what I’ll do from now on! Could so easily have been me as I would have done the same thing as her if someone had asked to see my ring.

Her husband is lucky this story didn’t turn out much worse, him trying to stick his hand into “the gap” of the revolving floor !!
Hopefully the mainteance person will find it and be able to return it to them…
OR they have Insurance.
I have to agree 100% with @Mrs. Mouse: Insurance is very very important !!
I personally NEVER take my rings off when I am out and about… they are either on my finger or locked up in a safe place. Period

I feel so bad for her! I really hope they find the ring.
Her husband was saying it was cursed?!? Why? That seems like an overreaction.

Oh. My. Word. I would be SO upset at this. I feel so badly for the couple who lost the ring, and I also cannot even imagine how terrible the woman who asked to see the ring must feel!
I really do not understand why the husband would say what he did about the ring being cursed and that the restaurant staff person could keep it if it is found. That makes no sense whatsoever, and, if he’s planning on cashing in on the insurance money to purchase a new one, he cannot be giving away the other one if it indeed is found.

Oh that’s just awful, awful bad luck! I don’t know what the husband is thinking just letting it go if it’s found though…

I NEVER take mine off outside the house. EVER and if I do here, they go onto my ring stand or into the box. Period.
I don’t get the “cursed” thing. No matter how or where, if I ever lost mine, I WOULD WANT IT BACK! So sentimental. Maybe he was just angry. Or maybe he is an asshat and was mad at her for dropping it!

I rarely take mine off. A good friend of my family took her rings off in the mall to apply hand lotion at a cosmetic counter, and walked on to shop… without her rings! she went back but the rings were long gone. She had a pricey set and had not insured it. If nothing else, my rings are insured. If I was the lady who dropped hers in that restaraunt, I’d be hysterical. Even though my rings are insured, they’re MINE
