Not signing up for navy officer training when I had the chance as an 18 year old (they didn't give me the 25k a year bursary to pay my way through uni, so I had a tantrum and turned down the opportunity to join the programme that they offered me instead). Would have put me on a different course in life and no doubt set me up financially and ironed out one or two bad habits. But then I wouldn't have the boys and so many great memories of life on the wild side.

Only being 11 when my old man died so never going for a pint with him. 15 for Grandad so the same...(although on his dying day he did give me a four pack of lager to drink during my job packing down a market stall).

Choosing to be educated in the Garden City with my mates rather than accept the free bursary to St. Bede's I was offered.

Spending the criminal injuries compensation I received, on various shenanigans during the summer of 1991, rather than put a deposit down on a house.

Thinking about it, the latter two are probably my Mrs regrets rather than mine...

The education in the garden city gave you valuable life lessons which st bedes wouldn’t have

Doesn’t pay the bills, but still valuable

Being offered the chance to go and play rugby for a team in Reno when I was 22, and not doing it. The guy who ran the team, owned / managed one of the casinos. The pitch to me and my mate was, 'cash in hand job in the casino, live rent free in the 'penthouse' above the casino, the girls are all recruited on looks, play rugby'.

I'd agree. Probably wouldn't change it really.

Although.....(from the MEN). Rank out of England

Thing about these potentially life changing missed opportunities is, if you had taken them you likely wouldn't be where you are now in life, wife, kids etc, and do you really want that?
