NH Brewery’s missing alliance showed our best and worst sides

Over the past year or so, it seems that while there have been any instances of missing or lost alliances, the call to action on Facebook posts has always seemed to be about finding the owner (s) and creating. a happy reunion. That’s why this recent story about a lost alliance found in a New Hampshire brewery is interesting, because the comments section took us on a wild ride.

Lost wedding ring has been found at Portsmouth Brewery

At the end of last week, a story started to circulate after a Portsmouth (un) official city of Portsmouth Facebook post, NH Group mentioned a Portsmouth Brewery worker finding a man’s wedding ring after indulging in a late afternoon lunch. Marissa Rustici’s message reads as follows:

I work at the Portsmouth Brewery and a man left his gold wedding ring around 2:30 pm this afternoon. If anyone knows of anyone who lost their wedding ring today, please call or message me.

A fairly generic informational message with no underlying tone other than “if you’ve lost your ring or know someone who has, give us a call / message us. However, as mentioned above, While other stories of lost rings / rings have been met with a rally to try and find the rightful owner, some of the commentators on this article have taken very different approaches to this information.

Some users have seriously worried about the human well-being

Sadly, the past 20+ months have been beyond tax on all of us and have either created many battles around mental health or magnified the already existing mental health battles tenfold. For the most part, this has led a lot of people to become more sensitive and understanding about mental health, which was evident in some of the reactions to Marissa’s post.

“Make sure to report to PD. “-Heidi Krassner

“Please try to identify him and ask the PD to do a wellness check.” – Bruce A. Dean

Other users suspected more nefarious reasons to leave an alliance behind.

While the very first comment advised Marissa to report the missing alliance and the incident to the police, with another comment deepening the reasoning behind the contact with the police, other commentators were not as convinced as he was. was a possible problem for the good of man. -being. In fact, they suspected something on the opposite end of the spectrum.

“All the women in the Portsmouth area are now checking their spouse’s left hand. “- Suzanne CB

“I’m waiting for him to comment so I can ask him why he took it off.” – Adrianny Morales

“I admit that some servers can spontaneously provoke this in men of a certain ummm… moral flexibility.” – Matthieu Tirabassi

“Hmmm … he took it off at the bar …” – Donna Marie Marcotte

While these comments may be a bit harsher and more skeptical than worried about human well-being, it’s obviously not uncommon for this exact type of mindset and incident to happen before.

It is interesting to see the immediate reactions of some people when they hear about a man leaving behind a wedding ring in a bar. an unfaithful spouse who messed up (sad that’s an immediate response, but again, it’s not unheard of).

Not once was it considered that the man may have ordered a messy meal – a super juicy burger, wings drenched in different sauces – and didn’t want his ring (and the skin underneath) is covered with food. .

Fortunately, this story has a happy ending, as Marissa updated everyone in the comments section of her original post, saying that the group had been returned to their rightful owner over the weekend.
