Man Gets Rejected, Uses Engagement Ring Money To Buy Master Chief Armor

November 17, 2011, By Christian Davis

People cope in very unique ways. Take Eric Smith for example, he was in love with his girlfriend and decided to propose to her. He found the exact ring that she wanted and was prepared to spend the rest of his life with her. Before he could propose however, she told him she was in love with someone else. One of the worst feelings any man could experience.

So now he was left with an unusually unique ring that wasn’t going to be easy to sell. After time had passed, it eventually found a new home through eBay for an undisclosed amount of money. What did he use that money for? He purchased a full scale suit of armor based of off Master Chief from the Halo series of  course.

According to Smith, this was the most significant purchase he has made in his life. Of course it seems that it was a spur of the moment sort of thing but Smith had actually been thinking about purchasing the suit of armor for some time now and he just recently received the funds for it. He doesn’t regret the decision either and says the construction of the suit (which came in several shipments) was “unintentionally cathartic.” It’s always good to see someone turn and pretty ugly situation into something fulfilling.

Have you ever done something out of the ordinary to cope with a bad situation? Let us know in the comments.
