.....and hold up a bank with a shotgun....how the heck did he afford that engagement ring....even on credit???? Katie has just taken an evening job....(and she was up at 5.45am don't forget to see to Joseph) in a kebab shop to earn a few bob? UN-BE-LEEV-ABLE.

The other week they couldn't afford one night out and now she keeps popping out with her mates every other night and it seems fine grin

Ridiculous story line, has made me stop watching

That must be the riches that follow from a few shifts in the kebab shop.

I didn't clock the ring - might it be zirconia?

I think it is just a pretty fake from the market <invests too much time in Corrie>

You can't invest too much time in Corrie. It's the only time in my day that my family daren't don't ask me to do anything.

Let's put it this way Scaevola, it wasn't a free gift with the latest copy of the Beano, it came in a BOX for Chrissake!!!! To afford this ring on Chessy's wage he would have to save up for 10 years at least.

haha I noticed that too...to be fair its a stupid storyline but when you look at the bigger picture it doesn't seem all that bad. I mean this is coming from a street where at least 8 people die a year whether it be murder, a tram hitting them or they develop a exotic disease. Then you have all the robberies, fires, thefts, affairs - you name it it has happened on coronation street. All I know is I would never move to that street!!

Must tell DH about the ring. He never did get around to buying me one.

meditrina Fri 15-Mar-13 22:40:52

Hope he kept the receipt...

Brilliant Sunshine, it did actually look exactly like that! I am going to have to withdraw my complaint now. Do you mean my cash strapped DH had no excuse not to get me an engagement ring all those years ago...just wait til I get my hand on the him....
