    the NYPD special ops? To get a ring that was apparently to meaningless that the couple didn't leave contact info? For an idiot that thinks it's a good idea to wear an engagement ring you JUST got even tho its too big? ...........

    New York's Finest version of 'The Ring Cycle'! Could be turned into a new 'Fairytale of New York'. There are too many 'Grinch's' stealing Christmas, so it's great to have honest, dedicated Cops demonstrating that they live their motto. Let's give it up to the NYPD!

    As a student I worked at a place that just had new blow dryers installed in the bathrooms and it blew my boss' wedding ring straight off. When I walked in he had been looking for about 10 minutes, I reckoned I had a good eye and sure enough, after a minute, I spot the damn thing balancing in between a fold of the trashbag in the bin. He didn't gave me a happy ending though, for some reason I didn't even get a 'thank you'. I disregarded that because he probably had some adrenaline or distress running through his veins, but when I greeted him the next day and he walked passed me like I was a ghost I handed in my resignation. One of the most ungrateful pricks I've had the displeasure of meeting; didn't he realize that if I hadn't found it, that thing would've probably end up in a landfill lost forever?

    Lol this is exactly what happened to me but near Ground Zero. Except I was not with my husband so imagine the scary thought of having to face your fiancé!!NYPD helped me recover my engagement ring that fell down a storm drain. It was a scary moment looking at it flickering at the bottom of this huge drain. It was truly a blessing that a patrol car was nearby and willing to get down this huge storm drain to get my ring. Much love to them ❤️

    Can you imagine that poor girl? Oh dear God...I think I would have gone ape-shit crazy. Moral of the story...NEVER wear the ring if it's too big. Place back in box, return to fiancé for sizing. I would have cried the entire 6 hour flight home. WAY TO GO, NYPD !
