A man is considering proposing marriage at airport security and he asks the internet for advice.
We are going on a trip in a few weeks flying Delta, and I’m considering stashing the ring in my pocket. I’ll go into the metal detector first, and when the ring or ring box set off the buzzer, I’ll pull it out, turn around and drop to a knee…. I’m wondering if there is anything I should consider legality wise before hand? Any potential problems this could cause???
There’s some pushback on the idea, but he isn’t dissuaded, he just wants “input on the legality of doing so.”
Thing is, it wouldn’t be the first time someone proposed at a TSA checkpoint.
In 2008 the ring a man was taking through security to propose on a trip with his girlfriend alarmed at the checkpoint. It was in his carry on bag, there was no way to keep his intended in the dark, so he decided just to do it right then and there.
An airport screener checking Tkachuk’s carry-on luggage spotted a small box in the toe of a sock — insisted on having a closer look and pulled out a white gold, diamond and ruby ring.
Tkachuk decided to propose on the spot, and his dazed 24-year-old girlfriend said yes, as fellow travelers and security staff looked on and applauded.
