Tell me how you’ve lost your wedding ring. I’ve lost mine in the ocean while on beach vacation last week and was absolutely devastated.

Took mine off and set it on hood of car while I applied sunscreen to my kids. (Yes, did occur to me at that moment that this was probably a bad idea). Forgot about it and drove kids to baseball practice. Realized it was missing several hours later when time to pick kids up. Put similarly weighted mood ring on hood of car and started driving as usual. Braked at a stop sign, mood ring fell off and rolled into street. Got out to check and yes indeed, found wedding ring there too! Phew.

What a brilliant idea! So glad you found it!

I lost mine in a horse stall. Took 5 people an hour or two, but we found it. I'm not allowed to wear it to the barn anymore 🙈

I was certain I lost mine in my horses mane while riding bareback once. Was so scared until I got home and confirmed I'd taken if off before going to the barn that day.

Mine fell off my hand running errands. My husband was on a deployment and I couldn't speak to him that often and we were also really poor so I understand the devastation.

I’m sorry you’re so devastated. It is so hard to lose something precious to you. I wear a “travel” set that was $40 off Amazon. And keep my real one for important events. I take the “travel” one on vacation, camping, cruises, etc.

When I was like 14 my dad and I did a manta ray dive in Hawaii and there was like 2 other families and a couple on their honeymoon. As you can imagine where this is going, the woman lost her ring in the Pacific Ocean. Only realized when she got back up to the surface and on the boat. The tour guys dove down and tried to look for it on the remaining oxygen and still couldn’t find it. All in all I’m still impressed she didn’t have a total meltdown

Oh and another— family friend got engaged. Her and her now husband are super successful group insurance sales reps. Like top agent of the year. She goes to get a tan and takes it off and puts it in the locker. Someone steals it, and ironically enough they’d yet to insure it. Turned up a week later but still

Ugh I’m sorry. We have a rule where we don’t take ours out of town. So much unknowns if they were to be taken off

If it’s not loose on your finger, I don’t understand how it can fall off? Or you can lose it? I just never take mine off.

Some people's fingers swell or shrink depending on temperature, and not everyone wears their rings snug. I take mine off every night because my fingers swell in my sleep and it will get very very uncomfortable.

my aunt forgot her’s on a cruise and someone stole it. she left it by the sink. she was so sad however she did end up getting a bigger ring after

I took my engagement ring off on a plane to put on some lotion. Put the ring in my lap but of course fell asleep before putting it back on and forgot about it. Realized it while in a cab pulling away from the airport after we arrived at our destination. Jumped out in the middle of traffic and ran back into the airport while my fiancé (very confused) got the cab to pull over and unload all our stuff. The flight attendants had found it on the seat while cleaning up the plane between flights and turned it in, thank goodness. Fiancé wasn’t too happy about it but… karma. After we got married, we were flying home after the wedding and walking through the airport he just all of a sudden says “I’ll be right back” and walked away. Turns out he, for some reason, thought his ring would set off the metal detector at security so took it off and put it in a little bin to go through. And walked away without it. He too got it back but he was no longer able to give me a bad time!

If you have home owners insurance, it may cover a portion if you didn’t have it separately insured. So sorry this happened!

How much leeway do you have when negotiating start dates? I would like to start in Jan since I save most of my PTO for the holidays. If I start in Nov/Dec I either won’t be able to take it or will start in a hole.
