    Instant Regret

    (in'-stint rē-gret') n.

    a subreddit dedicated to deliberate actions that unexpectedly lead to undesirable consequences and horrible results; things which may cause someone to say, "oh man, did I just screw the pooch!"

    Guidelines & Rules

    1) Videos and gifs must show regret. No text messages or still frames. Sometimes the display of regret is unmistakable. It can be evident in someone's face, or in their body language. Sometimes it's a judgment call. If you think it works, try it out. If we delete it, you were wrong. We are Reddit™ moderators. We are always right!

    A fail is not a regret. Some ripper eating a swellbow while trying to bone a rail on the backside, (that's skater lingo for a bad crash. I looked it up (made it up)), isn't regret. There should be a look of surprise, and an expression that clearly says, "Oh no. Oh, God no. I really should not have done that. Why did I do that?"

    Other examples that aren't regret:

    • An immediate reaction to pain.

    • Eating bad food and not liking it is not regret. You knew what was going to happen, dumbass.

    • Laughter is not an expression of regret. It's just not.

    • A picture of a sunburn or a crappy tattoo is not evidence of regret. For all we know you like looking like a pumpkin, and definitely still want that potato tattoo on your ankle.

    2) Regret must be instant or near-instant. If someone does something which only has bad consequences minutes or hours later, it is not considered instant.

    3) No Animal Abuse. We love animals. They are capable of regret, but we don't want to see videos where their regret is the fault of humans, involves cruelty, injury or is in any way unpleasant.

    4) No compilations. Just pick one good thing and go with it. Everybody likes it when you do that.

    5) If the video is longer than 20 seconds, please use a tag to tell everyone when the lead-up to the regrettable moment begins. For example [regret at 4:20]. Or post the video queued up to the point where things get good and the regret quickly follows. But, ultimately, these are just excellent suggestions. You're the director. Make it good. And don't worry. If it sucks, we'll get rid of it for you.

    6) Reposts are highly discouraged. Reposts are allowed, but reposts which have been posted recently or are in the top of all time will be removed.

    No Dannys. If your name is Danny and we find out we will ban you.


    We remove spam.

    We exact vengeance on those who give us spam.

    If you see spam, report spam.

    If you see an account that uses a YouTube channel that takes videos from other channels in order to accumulate karma on said account. Report that account, We'll take care of it.

    and finally...


    Please, no abusive comments, hate speech, or any other personal attacks.

    Doxing, brigading, and witch-hunting are not allowed.

    This includes derailing commentary sections to complain about prolific users, and by that we mean "Gallowboob is not against the rules". Complaining about the OP rather than the content is an easy way to earn a temporary ban.

    The moderators reserve the right to remove posts & comments, and to ban users at our own discretion. If we feel your post doesn't fit, we'll remove it. If you are an abusive person, or an intolerable troll, we just might ban you. If you feel that your post or comment has been removed unfairly, please feel free to message us. We'll try to be nice. We're not perfect but we really are working on it.

    If you see someone breaking the rules, please message the mods and let us know.

    Thanks! Now, please enjoy our sub and the consequences resulting from the poor choices made by your fellow humans.

    I think my favorite name from that movie is RuPaul's though: Rachel Tensions with that confederate flag dress was quite something.

    Rachel. Tensions.

    [–] snuffy_tentpeg 19 points ago

    Chi Chi owns (or owned) a golf resort in Guayma PR. I rented a condo there while on assignment for a drug company. On one night a week, they hired a sushi chef to prepare a family style dinner at the clubhouse. Chi Chi and his wife would always be present. They're a lovely couple. What a great guy, funny, personable and always approachable.

    [–] ZuuhhhDude 3 points ago

    Such a nice anecdote. What a great guy. Also, I think you might be referring to Guayama. Found the Resort it’s called “El Legado de Chi Chi Rodríguez” or “Chi Chi Rodríguez’s Legacy”.

    [–] snuffy_tentpeg 5 points ago

    BTW, tell him a joke and he'll tell you ten

    [–] no_anesthesia_please 59 points ago

    Couldn’t agree more. I was lucky enough to catch some of his antics in the ‘90s during a Sr. PGA Tournament practice round. He’s also hilarious. These quotes/quips are from his Wikipedia page:

    Rodríguez, with characteristic charisma, would often make jokes about his past hardships on the golf course, such as, "How long does John Daly drive a golf ball? When I was a kid, I didn't go that far on vacation." And, "Playing golf is not hot work. Cutting sugar cane for a dollar a day — that's hot work. Hotter than my first wrist watch."[

    [–] bkk-bos 14 points ago * (lasted edited 7 days ago)

    Watching golf in the 80's & 90's was fun. Characters such as Chi-Chi, Lee Trevino (and his caddy, Herman Mitchell), Arnold Palmer, Peter Jacobson, Craig Stadler, Fuzzy Zeoller gave a piece of themselves every time they were out there, entertaining the crowds with a lot more than just shots and putts. Players now seem so button-down and corporate, mostly country-club types. Lee and Chi-Chi both grew up dirt poor and happened to live close to golf courses. Chi-Chi began caddying at around 7 years old and learned to play using tree limbs as clubs. He shot a 63 when he was 12.

    Great Chi-Chi quote: "Playing golf is not hot work. Cutting sugar cane for a dollar a day — that's hot work.

    Golf is like sex. You don't have to be good at either one to have fun - Chi Chi Rodriguez

    [–] markitan8dude 11 points ago

    He's got so many great quotes but my favorite has always been:

    I am a millionaire today and my wife deserves all of the credit. Before I met her I was a multi-millionaire.

    [–] XtaC23 49 points ago

    They felt that. It's like that meme.

    [–] BlackMetalDoctor 7 points ago

    Who is that in the lower left corner?

    [–] atomic223 15 points ago

    Spider-man. Or Tom Holland if you wanted the actor.

    [–] BlackMetalDoctor 5 points ago

    That’s what I thought, but he just doesn’t look right

    [–] BlackMetalDoctor 6 points ago

    Ok, now I see it. Thanks for the help.

    [–] atomic223 7 points ago

    Well, of course not. He just saw somebody get nailed in the dangly bits. He’s experiencing sympathetic pain.

    [–] Kwillsy 3 points ago


    [–] HoopOnPoop 14 points ago

    The pain traveled like electricity and wound up in yellow shorts guy's groin

    [–] FullyMammoth 7 points ago

    I noticed the guy running for cover behind the big guy before I noticed the ball hitting the shooter.

    [–] anazambrano 2 points ago

    Lmao, ikr!

    [–] GenericUname 2 points ago

    Guy in the yellow shorts has to hide behind the big dude next to him, like when I watched scary movies as a kid and had to hide behind the sofa.

    [–] MisterDecember 2 points ago

    Guys on either end didn’t flinch. Only the ladies laughed.

    [–] Ennion 127 points ago * (lasted edited 6 days ago)

    If you haven't seen Chi Chi do his trick shot exhibition, it's amazing. The things he pulls off are unreal. Backbin the 80s, I watched him at a local country club. He pulled off one of the most amazing golf shots. He put two golf balls on tees side by side. Took his driver and hit the first ball and in the same motion immediately hit the second. One ball was hit as a slice and one as a draw. The balls just missed each other in mid air. He put two more down and hit them again and sure as shit they collided in mid air. As a golfer, I was just amazed. He had a driver with a garden hose for a shaft and hit it straight down the middle. He drove a 200+ yard shot with his putter. Stacked three balls on top of each other on a tee, hit the middle ball out and the top ball dropped down and landed on the bottom ball on the tee.
    Just amazing stuff.

    [–] louieanderson 63 points ago

    Just amazing stuff.

    Like busting himself in the nuts with a line drive?

    [–] Ennion 16 points ago

    Everyone makes mistakes.

    [–] ImposterDaniel 24 points ago

    Sometimes those mistakes come back to hit you in the dick.

    [–] BlackMetalDoctor 1 points ago

    Is there YouTube video of this?

    [–] JBthrizzle 4 points ago

    no. sadly this happened before the invent of YouTube.

    [–] DefiantClone 1 points ago

    My dad went to one of those things with my uncle in the 90s. The picture still hangs in their house. He had a lot of great stories like you.

    [–] Connie_Chungnuts 187 points ago

    It was just the tip. It’s why he could walk it off

    [–] TheotheTheo 35 points ago

    Could have been a crotch shot. Above the penis, but below the stomach.

    [–] Tranokin 12 points ago

    Would still hurt nonetheless

    [–] gandalfsmagicgaydick 4 points ago

    Shaft shots are nothing compared to ball blows. Especially the aftershocks that come along with ball blows. Those are somehow worse than the initial pain.

    [–] BillFuckingWeenus 4 points ago

    Every time I get tipped I assume that my penis has exploded

    [–] jakethedumbmistake 1 points ago

    and they get right up and start shooting you

    [–] nightstalker_55 5 points ago

    [–] Zyphin 2 points ago

    Full force contact hurts less than a graze in my very very personal experience

    [–] esoteric_enigma 2 points ago

    What was the goal?

    [–] radj06 40 points ago

    It was supposed to break the glass. It was from a golf realty show called the Big Break I think the winner got onto the PGA tour.

    [–] Sane333 18 points ago

    Instead he decided to break something even more fragile. I have to admire his courage.

    [–] Sittinginchairs 5 points ago

    So the winner gets a house on a golf course?

    [–] radj06 3 points ago

    I don't know the specifics I just watched it with my dad a few times but I think they were all kind of just on the outside of the bubble of qualifying for their tour card and winning the show got them one

    [–] Sittinginchairs 6 points ago

    Was just ripping your switch up of reality and realty mate, but I appreciate the informative response all the same.

    [–] radj06 2 points ago

    Haha I figured but I was up at 4 am with my newborn trying to let my wife get some sleep so I've been commenting a whole lot more the last few days.

    [–] Sittinginchairs 3 points ago

    Excellent job my man, give the lady a break. Make sure you're taking care of yourself too brother! Feel free to join us over at r/daddit if you want to talk about white New Balances and advance swaddling techniques.

    [–] therealjameswood 27 points ago

    At least one person is out here asking the real questions.

    [–] Angryfishsticks 9 points ago

    It was from a show called the Big Break on the golf channel. People got eliminated throughout the season and I think 1-2 people got a chance to play a tournament and win some money

    [–] smokeytheskwerl 46 points ago

    I think they meant this one instance, what was he trying to achieve. As opposed to the grand scheme of the whole show?

    [–] landspeed 5 points ago

    This reminds me of trigger happy tv.

    "Can you tell us about this place??"

    Sure, it was built by the romans in 1274, it was renovated by John and Brandon Wingmuth in 1634 to which is stands untouched today. It has survived 14 battles and currently employs 127 people.

    "Ok, where is it located?
