Kate Ray, a New Yorker who works for the American Civil Liberties Union—fight the good fight, Kate!—thankfully didn't fall down a sidewalk grate (yes, that's something that occasionally happens to people).

But she did lose her engagement ring.


But Kate wasn't ready to bid that ring of hers farewell. She says she lost it after she went to grab a cup of coffee with one of her colleagues.

She could see it at the bottom, though, so that's something.

But simply getting that ring out of the grate would be more complicated than Kate thought.

Thankfully, the MTA was on hand to lend their support...


...but they couldn't help her.

Con Ed customer service is pretty evil, so we understand Kate's frustration here.

But then Kate had an idea: A rather ingenious idea.


Kate was a woman on a mission.



Oh, did we mention Kate attracted a group of supporters?

And then...

It happened.

SHE DID IT!

You've gotta love NYC.


Kate's story of determination and perseverance attracted quite a few fans on social media.






Well done, Kate.

We knew you could do it!

There is so much to learn in life.

And once you acquire certain things mentally, you regret it.

How much 411 have you come across over time that made you think... "How can I unlearn that?"

The truth matters.

Something one would think was a given in modern society.

Yet all over the world, there are people so unbelievably stubborn, that they simply refuse to believe the facts.

Sometimes even when presented with evidence.

This could be for something menial, such as refusing to believe that a cotton candy was actually invented by a dentist.

But sometimes, refusing to believe the truth could have serious consequences, up to and including climate change, the effectiveness of masks, and the disproportionate amount of gun violence in the US.

Redditor Lady_Of_The_Water was curious about the many things, both frivolous and serious, people refused to believe were true, leading them to ask:

"Whats something someone thought you were wrong about and ridiculed you for it, but it turns out you were right?"
