This Valentine’s Day, men who had planned to surprise their girlfriends with a diamond engagement ring during a romantic getaway could prevent airport security from spoiling the big reveal, but only if they knew the secret phrase!
Because Manchester Airport is one of the few locations to have implemented full-body scanners, men who chose to carry the ring on their person would be found out if their significant other happened to look at the scanned image.
To get around this issue on the romantic holiday and prevent any surprise proposal from being ruined, Manchester Airport’s security personnel agreed to take anyone who uttered “Be my Valentine” behind a screen for a private search.
While we think that’s a good thing for possible grooms-to-be to know, only forward-thinking men who called ahead would have known to do that!
Guys who are poised to pop the question could investigate the baggage check policy of their departure location to find out if there are any special procedures or secret passwords that can help them keep their diamond ring under wraps.
