(June 4, 2015) – Would you like fries with that proposal?
A man didn’t quite get the reaction he expected when he proposed to his girlfriend in the drive-thru at a McDonald’s. The man arranged to have an engagement ring placed inside the box for a chicken sandwich.
The whole thing, posted on YouTube Tuesday, is just awkward and uncomfortable. After getting his order in the drive-thru, he prods his girlfriend to check his sandwich.
“Open the sandwich,” he says. “Because sometimes they put like… I forgot to say no mayonnaise. But I wanted to see if it came with mayonnaise. I’m not sure.”
She opens the sandwich and laughs (that’s at around 1:40 in the video above).
“Will you marry me?” he asks.
More shocked laughter ensues.
“You’re not serious!” she says in disbelief. “You didn’t… you can’t do this! This is not what you do!”
Still in disbelief, she stares at the sandwich box and awkward laughs and glances ensue.
“You can’t ask me to marry you on a chicken sandwich!”
From the video’s YouTube description:
I met my girlfriend 2 years ago in LA. I’ve never been good at planning in advance which is why we wound up ending our first date at this exact McDonald’s. She joked for months about how 10 years down the road I would probably propose to her in a chicken nugget box so I thought she would love when I surprised her this way. She didn’t love it like the way I thought she would. We agreed to wait longer until it’s time to get engaged.
