Aldi fans in tears as supermarket workers get engaged mid-shift – but others slam 'worst proposal ever' | The Sun11/15/2023
A SUPERMARKET worker was left stunned after her partner proposed to her mid-shift in front of shoppers.
Lynne Fuller was working on the checkout at the Aldi on Friday when her beau Mike Durrant turned up for the romantic surprise.
The 50-year-old watched on as Mike, 54, approached her from down the shop aisle, before taking to one knee in a touching proposal.
An emotional Lynne quickly accepted before being allowed to clock off early to celebrate the occasion.
A video posted online shows the moment that Mike is led towards his beloved as the piper blasts out Scotland the Brave in the Inverness branch.
Mike, who also works for Aldi, is the last man to round the corner and walk towards the tills as Lynne continues to scan customer’s shopping.
Her partner then takes her hand before embracing her as the bagpipes sound in the background.
Lynne, dressed in her Aldi work uniform, appears overwhelmed by the touching surprise and sniffs as Mike descends to one knee.
Thoughtful Mike then pops the big question, asking Lynne: “Will you marry me?”
He barely has time to utter the phrase before Lynne rapidly replies: “Yes.”
