Eric Anderson, 25, wanted to do something big and new to propose to his girlfriend, 28-year old Rachel Clark. He noticed that the bus stop that his girlfriend took had a advertisement space open. He contacted JCDecaux, which manages the city’s bus shelters with his offer. They typically rent that space for $3000 per month but his intentions made the company rent out the place for a week for a discounted price.

 

“At first I was afraid it wouldn’t be very romantic — it’s a bus station,” he said. “But I mentioned it to her sister and my cousin, and they were both excited about it. I had two women who liked it, so I went with it.”Source: www.chicagotribune.com

The message read as follows –

“Rachel!

I love you!

Let’s be a Team forever!

Will you marry me?

XOXO,

Eric.”

It included symbols of a heart (for love), the scales of justice (she’s an attorney), a gear (he’s an engineer for Ford Motors) and a knot (as in, let’s tie the …) running down the side.

 

I was lost in my own little world,” Clark said of arriving at the stop Wednesday. “I marched up to the bus stop, and he was standing behind it. … He’s like, ‘Read the sign!’ I started giggling and laughing going, ‘Yes, yes!’ “

As morning commuters ignored the Lakeview couple, Anderson got down on one knee and presented Clark, 28, with a stone passed down in his family for 130 years.
