I don’t really know what goes through a man’s mind when he gets engaged. I’ve never done that before and don’t really intend to for a while. That said, I do know that if your proposal involves inconveniencing other people going about their lives, you’re kind of a prick. If it involves shutting down one of the busiest highways in one of the biggest cities in the country just to make a showy gesture to your SO (that, statistically, you’ll probably divorce), you’re an intolerable selfish asshole.
This tool stopped traffic on I-45 in Houston on Sunday morning to propose to his girlfriend. There are two things wrong here. First of all, that’s a massive public safety issue! And secondly, WHAT KIND OF GIRL WANTS TO GET ENGAGED IN THE MIDDLE OF A FREAKIN’ FREEWAY?!
According to the Chronicle, it’s actually “one of her favorite” spots. Wait… Wut?
To get to a party Navas made up as a ruse, the couple took the highway, which is one of Wycoff’s favorite spots. Navas took her on a motorcycle ride on freeway on their second date.
That’s when Navas told his girlfriend of a year and half to get out of the car.
“I said, ‘Are you serious?'” Wycoff said. “Then I saw all my family and friends with cameras and I looked where Vidal was and he was down on one knee.
“Honestly, I didn’t think about if it was a good idea or a bad idea. I was just so happy in the moment. I love him so much.”
Navas said his friends and family, who were following closely behind, stopped traffic for about 35 seconds while he popped the question
“I never really thought about causing an accident. I thought about my girlfriend,” he said.
*Puke* In the words of a wise man, the only message you’re really sending here is “We are better than you and our time is more important than yours.”
Meanwhile, the person who uploaded the video to Reddit claims a couple five cars down was rushing to the hospital to perform a C-Section. But the source of that claim is iffy at best.
Meanwhile, as you can see, Vidal was quite proud of how he popped the question.
There’s a lesson here, Bros. If you plan on asking the woman you want to spend the rest of your life with the big question, DON’T DO IT IN THE MIDDLE OF A FREEWAY. A subway? Sure, whatever — We can walk around you. An airport? Fine, just not in the security line please. The line at Chipotle? I don’t care. I’ll still get my chicken burrito bowl after your done with your showy gesture.
If you have a girl who thinks this kind of proposal is cute, GET OUT, NOW. There is an 85% chance she’s psycho and just in it for the ring. And if you’re a moron who thinks this is an appropriate way to get engaged, this generation is doomed.
