For many people, getting engaged is a moment that they’ll never forget and it’s safe to say that a couple from Texas that recently got betrothed in New York City won’t be forgetting their engagement anytime soon thanks to one person’s reaction.

In a viral TikTok from Bailey Kenworthy, the 24-year-old proudly announces to the Big Apple that she and her fiance Miguel have just gotten engaged by shouting the news from an apartment window.

“I’m engaged, New York!,” shouts Kenworthy but it’s safe to say she wasn’t expecting the reaction she received.

Almost immediately after yelling her announcement a cyclist on the street below gives a rather blunt and aggressive reply, shouting back with: “Shut the f**k up!”
