Nurse Gets Shock Of Her Life When Patient Jumps Off Table And Proposes

A surprise proposal is always an opportunity for a lot of fun. Many clever men spend a lot of time and energy trying to figure out the perfect way to pop the question. Some guys score a lot of points for originality when they're able to completely take their girlfriend by surprise.

One guy got some help from his girlfriend's co-workers to spring the big surprise on her in an operating room.

Joseph Elkins, a guy with a good sense of humor and a great imagination, thought up a great way to catch his girlfriend off guard. His girlfriend is an emergency room nurse, and he got her co-workers, even doctors, in on the proposal.

The nurse was called to an emergency room where it looked like a very sick patient was about to go into surgery. Elkins was laying there in a hospital gown, surrounded by medical professionals, trays full of surgical tools, and connected to tubes and machines.

He had a large breathing mask on his face so his girlfriend couldn't see him.

The nurse rushed in and grabbed some things that the doctor requested. The doctor then asked her to come over and assist with something, and she seemed confused.

She had that "Why are you asking me?" hesitance.

Clearly one of the other half-dozen people in the room surrounding the patient could have done it, and the nurse seemed a little thrown by the doctor’s out-of-the-ordinary orders, but being a good nurse she obeyed.

When the nurse approached the table, the doctor pulled the breathing mask off his face and she realized it was her boyfriend laying there. She had a moment of shock before he opened his eyes, smiled and popped up.

The woman was shocked and screeched in surprise. “Don’t do that to me,” she yelled.

Elkins whipped off his hospital gown, then got down on one knee with a ring in his hand. “Will you marry me?” he asked.

Between surprise shrieks, she managed to cry out 'Yes!'

Getting co-workers in on a proposal can be golden. One police officer actually got his co-workers to pull over his girlfriend and administer a field sobriety test.

The shocked woman went along with the officer’s instructions, probably wondering why on earth they thought she'd been drinking.

When the officer instructed her to turn around, she did. She was shocked to see her boyfriend behind her kneeling, ring in hand.

One of the best surprise proposals, however, was at another couple's wedding. The bride was not only in on the proposal, but it was her idea. It came time to gather ladies around to catch the bouquet.

Instead of throwing it, however, the bride turned around and handed it to her friend. The confused friend then turned around to see her boyfriend waiting with a ring.

The woman was completely stunned and clearly hadn’t seen that surprise coming. The bride said she was thrilled to do it for her best friend.
