Proposal goes awry for kleptomaniac

A youth, who had visited a house of a potential bride, found through a paper advertisement, had lost his chance of entering wedlock with her after her parents found out that he was a kleptomaniac.

The youth working at a private firm had gone with his parents to see a girl in Kandy after receiving a positive reply to a proposal advertised in the newspaper.

After seeing the potential bride, they were invited for lunch served with forks and spoons. However, while having lunch, the youth had secretly hid some forks and spoons in his pocket.

At their departure, the youth had bent down to tie his shoelace when the pilfered cutlery had slipped out of his pocket on to the floor in front of everyone, causing embarrassment to his parents.

The proposal was foiled and the youth had received an earful from his parents.
