I'm starting TO BE REALLY PISSED OFF at women and their rings. It used to be that if a woman wore a wedding band / engagement ring, you could tell what was going on. Now they wear so many rings its neatly impossible to tell what the situation is, especially in a town like Boca where people tend to have higher than average household incomes.
I can't ever tell, either. I just ignore it. They're always flattered, anyway.
Plus, I'm in class and there is a chick I like but she has a ring on, and it looks like an engagement ring, and then you have to abridge that particular point, and I have no idea how to smoothly do it.
You: [placing hands folded across your face] "Oh my god, I'm blinded by your engagement ring." Her: "haha, yeah, my boyfriend proposed ..."
or: Her: "haha, thanks, but it isn't an engagement ring..."
(Sorry, best I could come up with on the spot.)
