- Wedding: March 2013
Alright so last Friday Fi bought the ring. It was just the setting, and the wrong size, but he wanted to propose with his son, and we woudn’t have him again until the 21st, so he proposed with just the setting. It was romantic and cute.
The next day, we drop her off to be sized and set. Our promise date was 4/19 at 4pm.
So today, at 2pm, they call FI and tell him it’s delayed a day. I worked my lunch break around being able to go with him to get it. And now it’s delayed. Something happened at the jeweler and they JUST got the stone in tonight.
So I was all pissy, in a bad mood. Of COURSE they messed up. This is what I get for getting engaged on Friday the 13th.
Well FI, being the wonderful FI that he is, called the manager. He is very good with people and knows that yelling gets you nowhere.
He explained that finding out 2 hours before the promise date is unacceptable. We had made plans around being promised when i called on TUESDAY to check the status that all was on track and Thursday we’d have it. Told them we had plans on Friday that included people seeing my ring, and not having it was not going to be ok.
He texts me while I was back at work, all bummed out. “The stone made it to the jeweler tonight, the jeweler is setting it tonight and instead of it going back with the normal shipments at 4pm tomorrow, the manager is going to the jeweler at 10am on her day off to pick it up and bring it to me.”
Wow. I knew I agreed to marry him for a reason!
But still. I miss my ring! Ahh only like 11 more hours! He’s going to bring it to me at work so I don’t have to wait till I get off!
