You’re engaged to be married and just before the big day you get cold feet but you’re too chicken to tell her you don’t want to go through with it, what do you do?
Don’t do this.
“[Tucker] Blandford wanted to call off his engagement to British fiancee Alex Lanchester. The two had met in college in Connecticut when Lanchester was studying in the States for a year. They got engaged last year before Lanchester returned home at the end of semester, and their plan was to get married in Connecticut last week.
Apparently getting cold feet and unable to face the conversation himself, Tucker decided to fake his own death to get out of the engagement…he called Lanchester himself, assuming a fake voice and pretending to be his father, to tell his fiancee that he was dead.
‘Alex, this is Tucker’s dad,’ he told her. ‘There’s no easy way to say this… I am sorry to say that Tucker is dead.’ Alex says Tucker went on to say he’d been ‘suffering from depression and had thrown himself in front of a car.’
Understandably, she freaked out. She then called Tucker’s mother to give condolences and was doubly shocked to learn that she had no idea what Alex was talking about and that Tucker was indeed alive and well.”
