I just signed for a package from UPS. Sometimes I open the packages if there for my boyfriend sometimes I don’t. Well today I did. Opened the first box and inside that box was another box. Opened that too and inside the second box was a bag with a picture of an engagement ring on it. What do I do? I tried to put the boxes back together and make them look like I didn’t tamper with them. My boyfriend works 3rd shift and I’m home sick from work today. What are the chances and why did I hear the doorbell & he did not! We’ve been together umteen years and talk rings all the time. About a month ago we tried some on in the stores and he shows me ones he’s thinking about buying online.

@mjersan: Would your Boyfriend or Best Friend be upset if he knew you’d seen it? If so, best to put it back. Does he know you’re home sick?
Mine would laugh it off and I would POST PICS! But depends on your guy 🙂

I would pretend I hadn’t opened it.

OMG I think I would have screamed when I saw the ring. I would just tell him what happened. I’m sure it’ll be a good laugh. I mean how were you supposed to know? I love opening packages so Darling Husband knows if it comes to our house I’m going to open it. …he had my ring shipped to his sister’s apartment. LOL.

Well congrats! Now for me I would be jumping up and down. I hope he asks soon so you don’t need to wait long.

@yellowshoe: Lol…i love opening packages too! It is ridiculous how excited I get sometimes just going to the mailbox.
OP, I’m very excited for you! It could be any day he pops the question now! Yay!

Eh, tell him you saw it. You only saw the picture of the ring right? Honesty is the best policy!

I would let him know that you opened the package. Don’t try and hide it. Here’s to hoping a proposal comes soon!

I would have run in his room and thrown the box at him. “I’m thinking there’s something you want to ask me…”

why would you open his mail in the first place? I’d be super pissed if I was your bf. I guess you have to just tell him since I’m sure it will be obvious that the package was opened.

LOL! Ooooo exciting! Tell him you opened the boxes but not the bag! I wanna see the ring! (when he gives it to you) ekkkkkk!

eeeek! I would pretend I never saw it, only because I know how upset he’d be if he found out (he realllllly wants to surprise me). Congrats tho, so exciting!!

Crisis averted. I retaped the box with packing tape that we already had at home and also mushed down that side of the box to make it look like it happened during delivery (I know I’m awful…). Then I literally prayed to God that he wouldn’t ask me if I opened it and waited for him to wake up. We also got a delivery yesterday from FexEx so I ripped that box and bent it up too (again I know how awful that sounds but I was desperate!)! When he finally woke up I told him he got a UPS & FexEx delivery. He opened the UPS box while I was out of the room and thank goodness he opened the side I didn’t open thanks to the mushing I did to it. After all my worries he did not know I opened the box and saw it was my engagement ring. He hid it somewhere and we started to talk about the car mats delivered from FexEx. Whew!
