- Buyer's remorse (or buyer's regret) is the sense of regret after having made a purchase. It is frequently associated with the purchase of an expensive item such as a car or house. It may stem from fear of making the wrong choice, guilt over extravagance, or a suspicion of having been overly influenced by the seller.
I think I have widow's remorse.
We had so many wonderful times together. Discussing all those topics that I'm not comfortable talking about with others. We had compatible senses of humor ... he had the perfect delivery, PERFECT! Mine is more quick response. Manners and morals. He was the spender, I was the saver. I was the disciplinarian, he was DAD.
Even our bad times never lasted very long. Well ... there were some things that we NEVER EVER settled. He liked the bathroom window open (Oregon) and then would run the hot water for 10 minutes before getting in ... to "warm things up". Every day I would close the window (after airing out the shower). Every night, he would open it wide open.
Yesterday I had an island driving day with a friend, who never met Mr. Ralph. Upcountry for a Farmer's Market (one of his favorite things ... and his favorite part of Maui ... 4,000 ft above sea level. (We had a splendid lunch) After I dropped her off at home, I just kept thinking about him.
I wish I would have hugged him more.
I wish I would have laughed more with him.
I wish I would have kissed him more passionately more often.
I wish I would have traveled with him more.
I wish my more of my Maui friends could have met him.
I wish I would have had more time with him.
