    Default Any Regrets??

    I know people often say 'I never have any regrets', but I'm sure we all do...

    Do you have any? If so what are yours?


    My biggest regret was when I saw a job for a trainee architectural technician required in St. Kitts and Nevis....I applied and was subsequently one of 7 chosen applicants to go for interview in Leeds....

    I had only been with my very beautiful (and massively pregnant now) missus 6 months or so at this point and basically said that if i got the job i wanted her to come.....

    resulting arguement went a little something like 'your making me choose between you and my family, and thats not fair'.....

    therefore - I didn't go for the interview, and am not working in St. Kitts and Nevis...


    We talk about this now and it sounds selfish to most, but she understands now that it would've been great, if only for a couple of years. She now says that she probably would've come with me too.....

    So that was my biggest ever regret....but hey, "thats life"

    My biggest regret? Not ditching my ex-girlfriend 2 years ago and missing the Isle of Man TT 'cos she wanted to chill at home.....

    It was apparantly awesome too!!!

    Job wise I understand where you were going with that too. But no regrets.

    I worked in Iraq for 3 months as a Contractor. I regret going, but don't regret the money.

    Biggest regret, leaving the Navy. I'd be a Lt-Commander now with a small ship command behind me. (As opposed to a Police Sergeant with a small shift command )

    My biggest regret was when I was 17, I bought a Suzuki RG125 Gamma, Brand new, 4 days later an Icecream Van pulled out in front of me, totalled the bike, and myself !! 6 months off work ... I enquired about buying what was left of the bike and the insurance company gave it to me free ... I fixed it up and sold it to a mate, who smashed it up a couple of months later, going too fast round a bend and lost it, Anyways he is in a for the rest of his days..

    My biggest regret, putting the damned bike back on the road ....

    Not going on Concorde before they retired it. Had a few chances to, once when I was a little boy and then when I was growed up. My grandad was an engineer for BA and offered to let me go on a test flight and I was too scared to, never having been on a plane before at the time. My wife works for BA, too, and I've had plenty of chances to fly to New York for around £5-600 and never did it.

    Not going to Australia for good in 1990

    Got caught in neg equity, didn't come out of it till 1999 and had a family by then.

    No regrets about the family, but it's something that burns me deep inside wondering if things would have been better etc.
