12+ People Who Wish They Could Take It All Back

Paddy Clarke 19 Feb 2020

There's nothing quite like the feeling of regret. Everyone has experienced feeling of, "I wish I could go back in time and change that" a fair few times in their life, and yet we keep doing stupid things!

From having your face used to advertise sex offenders, to dropping your toothbrush somewhere that you definitely don't want to drop a toothbrush, here are 12+ people who wish they could take it all back!

1. "My friend is an extra in movies and does stock photography. Just saw him pictured as a sex offender on a bus in Florida."

Reddit | [deleted]

This guy really needs to look into the laws surrounding the use of his face! This sort of thing will probably really impact upon how many roles he gets... unless they're for roles as sex offenders.

2. "Pole dancing at the street."

Urban pole dancing is not for the faint-hearted, but I guess you get marks for effort here at least?

3. "Lamborghini Huracan flooded due to rain in São Paulo. It was not insured."

Reddit | xXJamesScarXx

How do you not get insurance on this kind of car? Although, I guess if you're rich enough to buy one of these in the first place, you're probably rich enough to just buy another one.

4. "My brand new Roomba ran over my puppy's sh*t and proceeded to 'clean' the rest of my home."

Reddit | screamicide

Looks like you're going to have to get rid of either the Roomba or the puppy as they cannot play nice together!

5. "I was the one in charge of unlocking the building today. This will be a fun conversation..."

I can't work out if this is the perfect defense system against burglars or the worst defense system?

6. "A portion of a building didn't come down during a scheduled demolition this morning. I give you the new leaning tower of Dallas."

Anyone who is lucky enough to be able to play with explosives for their job should never be in a situation where they look back on a job and think, "Should have used more explosives there." Always use the maximum amount!

7. "Need to keep the light on when I get ready for work..."

This guy also kind of brought it on himself by buying two pairs of shoes which are pretty much identical except for the colour. Get some variety in your life my man!

8. "Went to Panda Express with my girlfriend for Valentine's Day."

Bet this person wished that they had gone to literally any place that didn't have fortune cookies after opening this!

9. "It was a great day till this moment."

Reddit | pp0787

This radiates strong Wile E Coyote energy. I can imagine the skier who left this popping his head out of this imprint and holding up a wooden sign that says "Help!".

10. "Car parked outside chemical plant that had a fire."

Reddit | minus9

This is actually incredible! It looks like a rejected character model for The Thing!

11. "One of my motorcycles got stolen a couple years ago, I just found it in the forest after the fire came through."

Reddit | ShwiftyXJ

Most people aren't lucky enough to get their stuff back that has been stolen! This person should be thankful for getting their bike back... even if it has been completely destroyed.

12. "Their flight left 2hrs ago."

Reddit | czmax

I can actually hear the person who left this behind saying to themselves, "I'll just leave this on here in the open, as there's no way I'd leave that behind in such an obvious place!"

13. "Forgetting about your pizza for 8 hours. Burnt so bad it looks like a double-chocolate brownie."

I mean, I know that it is probably incredibly carcinogenic, but good God I really want to snap a bit off and try it!

14. "Regretting your beard trimming decision."

Reddit | istarxh

Shaving off your beard is a big decision! Everyone's jawline is much better in their memory than in reality.

15. "Feeling like Kevin from the office right now."

Reddit | GoAwayK

I love the cat looking down at the scene as though they're saying, "Oh wow Dave, you really messed up here!"

Reddit | TheWrigglerr

This is one of those moments where you wish that you'd just bought a bog-standard loaf of Hovis from the store. You can't go wrong with Hovis.

17. "My money!"

Oh, I remember the first time I discovered taxes. It is a sobering moment that makes you wish you could be a freeloading child forever!

You caught it with the outside of your hand? You really need to work on your catching.

I know that electric toothbrushes have replaceable heads, but I still think I'd have to throw it completely away.

20. "Guys, please stop praying for rain in Australia, it's now sideways raining and I have a 45 minute walk home."

Reddit | Dyljim

They're really not having much luck on the weather front in Australia at the moment, are they? Hopefully, this person had an umbrella with them!
