There’s plenty of things I regret,
Many years ago I was in a local village pub, it was a hot evening and a fella who looked a bit down on his luck came in and asked for a glass of tap water - the land lord ushered him out - saying no no no we are a public house who sells drinks!!!
I was somewhat taken aback as it all seemed to happen so quickly- to this day I still regret not saying “ I’ll buy the fellas drink”

We stopped going to that pub!

drilling out a tensioning bolt from an mg altenator I made the executive decision to steady said alternator using my foot.

Alternator tensioning bolts are quite hard. So when I decided to apply more pressure, the drill simply slipped off the alternator...

..Into my big toe. Didn't think much of it, thought I'd just slammed the body of the drill into the toe, until I noticed a) there was a drill hole in the wooden floor b) my to was bleeding c) on both sides. Clean through the toe :rofl:

I'm not sure if the regret was drilling through the toe or owning so many MGs :oops:
