Serving as an adjunct professor at a local university means I receive numerous faculty e-mails that don’t really pertain to me.  However, every now and then a gem like this crosses my computer:

A recent ________ University football player bought an engagement ring in December 2008. He never had the opportunity to propose to his girlfriend before they broke up. Now he is stuck with a brand new engagement ring still in the box. He purchased the extended service plan on the ring. Below is a link to the ring. He is trying to sell the ring. I told him about the faculty e-mail and told him I would post it for him.

So, if anyone needs an engagement ring please let me know.

  1. Too bad I didn’t know about this in December 2008.

  2. Yea, I was thinking that was a typo from the e-mailer…but I guess the guy is just getting desperate to sell it. I just got the e-mail two days ago, so maybe he was hoping for a change of mind…and now since 14 months have past, the truth has set in?
