Many establishments are known for their generosity with customers who are celebrating special occasions such as birthdays, anniversaries, and engagements. Because of this, a lot of people have scored themselves a free ice cream or meal by pretending to be celebrating a special day.

A young UK woman Rhian Smith and her boyfriend Harry Collins took things up a notch when they pretended to get engaged.

Taking to her Twitter page on 3 December this year Rhian first shared how she was planning on using her mom’s ring to get some freebies at The Shard, one of London’s fanciest hotels.
