REGARDLESS of whether we admit it or not, we ALL have an idea of how we’d like our other halves to propose – and it usually involves dinner at a posh restaurant or being whisked away on a romantic trip to Paris.
But if we had to agree on one place we actively wouldn’t want our partners to pop the question, let’s face it – it’d probably be McDonald’s.
After all, there’s nothing even vaguely romantic about us cracking open our supersize box of chicken nuggets before we’ve even left the drive-thru.
Unfortunately for one American bride-to-be, the fast food takeaway was the exact place her boyfriend decided to propose – and we can only hope this McDonald’s drive-thru holds some sentimental value to them.
Scrawled across a sign for Dr Pepper and cheap iced coffee, the proposal read: “Courtney, will you marry me?”
After spotting the proposal, one horrified McDonald’s customer shared it in the Facebook group That’s It, I’m Proposal Shaming.
They wrote: “Nothing like a grand gesture to REALLY show you’re ready for commitment, am I right?!”
But if the setting of the proposal wasn’t bad enough, other members of the group were horrified by how you could barely read the message – which was spray-painted in blue on a multicoloured background.
Labelling it “unimaginative”, one replied: “Dude didn’t even comprehend kindergarten art. It’s contrasting colours idiot!”
Another wrote: “I am almost positive that whoever wrote this doesn’t know the difference between capital and lowercase letters.”
A third joked: “Thanks for the eye test!”
For more relationship horror stories, this wannabe bride made a sign moaning she’s been waiting for a proposal for 6 years & was slammed for being ‘petty & pathetic’.
