He had bought her the ring last year to celebrate their 10th wedding anniversary and to replace one she'd lost years earlier.

Stop giving her shiat.


Also, what's with the Glamour Shots posing in the article?

This. She lost the ring that was a replacement for the one she lost? Ugh. Stupid, stupid woman shouldn't be given anything more valuable than a candy machine ring.

Dear Penthouse

I cant believe it happened to me, this poor old black garbage picker finally got me a hot blonde Australian woman and her husband watched! All it took wa digging through some garbage....

Hero tag for worker, Ditzy tag for woman. She's already lost one before? That might be a subliminal message she's sending to her husband, she really doesn't want to be married to him.

What make you think she's ditzy?
If it wan a man who didn't like to wear his band......

I don't care if she chooses not to wear it. But it appears she wants to, but has trouble doing that.

Ummmmm.... wasn't the ring insured?? No way should she expect someone to go through garbage to save her ring. At this point, the husband is STUPID if the next replacement ring has CZs instead of diamonds.

It's not an impressive-looking ring. Maybe that's the one with the zircons and brass.

What an ugly ring. She should have held out for another replacement. Third try's the charm!

I hope a little gratitude went in that guys direction.

My man drives a garbage truck for NY State Parks and while I'd like to think he'd go to the same extent... anyway, this guy deserves a raise.

Any chance we could get a bit more selective regarding what is considered heroic?

After spending half the day looking for a wedding band, he was fired for his inefficiency at his job.

This story restored my faith in humanity. The farksponses wiped it away again.
Tough crowd, oh they're tough. After they sacked the quarterback, they went after his family.

You have no idea how unfortauntely true this statement might be if he hadn't made the paper/gotten a nod from the Mayor. I got in trouble a number of times for going above and beyond to help a patron at my Parks job. Thankfully I had great bosses who went up to bat for me when management got all RARR over my doing right by a member of the tax-paying public.

(These days I do the opposite - I don't work there anymore but I'm down there every other night fishing, and regularly take it upon myself to straighten up the bathroom at the piers. ...yeah I do wish I still worked there.)

Happy ending: NYC Parks worker Gary Gaddist searched through bags of trash to find Danielle Carroll's wedding ring, after she accidentally threw it away on Sunday

Funny... she didn't look Asian...

I'm so ashamed at how long it took me to get the joke.

That's a $3,000 at most (probably closer to $1,500)... Are we going to start running articles on women who lose their Corsica's in mall parking lots??

Wouldn't be Chelsea Piers would it? (NC boy here, sorry if I'm WAY off the mark)...

I actually have to go to NYC (Chelsea Piers) next week for the day (working rich people sucks), I do like eating though so a job is good.

I thought this headline would have been funnier if it had been limited to the final four words.

That said...woman is idiot, fool who dug through garbage without being her "OMG, hon, I forgot to insure it so let's try to find it" husband is "idioter."

/dnrtfa, so probably am failing on several counts.

Naw, I fish off the piers at Field 10 of Jones Beach. But Chelsea Piers is lovely if you're in the right spot; haven't been out there in a little while.
