"Marry Me" scrawled in a toilet stall

While on a recent road trip along I-80, I stopped into a rest area in central Ohio. While using the men’s room, I noticed what struck me as perhaps the most-likely-to-fail marriage proposals of all time.

I feel like the proposal was likely to fail for a number of reasons:

(1) It was scrawled on the toilet paper dispenser in a men’s bathroom in a rest area on I-80 in Ohio.
(2) It was scrawled on the toilet paper dispenser in a men’s bathroom in a rest area on I-80 in Ohio.
(3) It was scrawled on the toilet paper dispenser in a men’s bathroom in a rest area on I-80 in Ohio.

Then I thought about it some more and came up with a few more reasons while “Yes, I will marry you!” is not a likely response.

(4) It would be tough to coordinate getting the beloved to use the specific stall, unless the couple have a shared favorite stall – which would be weird.
(5) The effort required to scrawl “Marry Me!” on a toilet roll dispenser seems so low that the hoped-to-be spouse is bound to read it and think “Really? That’s the best you could do?! Where the romance?!”

I imagine that there are all sorts of additional reasons why this marriage proposal won’t deliver the intended result for the asker.
