    Default Regrets

    1.I have always been trying to live my life in a way I'll not regret later.But unfortunately there are siruations in which we behave out of our characters.Later we feel ashamed,we regret and wish to turn back time.But that's impossible.Sad but true.
    That's exactly what happened to me 3 years ago.I decided to pay a visti to my grandmother who then lived in a small village.I travelled more than 5 hours which was a terrible experience for me since I'm not used to travelling.Before regarding me as a person who complains all the time,I must tell you I travelled not only by bus but also by train.I think every normal person would feel exhausted after something like that.Anyway,after my trip ended I was not only tired but also pretty nervous.I had absolutely no idea where I should go since I had never been there before.The first thought that came to my mind was that the village looked really small and prbably all people knew each other.I headed towards a coffee wich was situated near the platform.An old woman was staying behins the bar.Since my luggage was too heavy for my hands I left it near the coffee's door and paced slowly towards the woman.Having reached her I smiled at her and asked her kindly if she knew where my grandmother lived.She looked at me with some kind of hostility and started mumbling something but I couldn't understand a single word so I strated sceraming at her.a moment later everyone stared at me and that's when my anger reached its peak.I have no idea for how long I sceramed at all of them.Suddenly I felt someone touched my hand.I was ready to scream again at the one who dared tot ouch me but when I turned away I saw that was my grandmother.She had tears in her eyes and told me that if i acted that horrible way with her friends then I wouldn't be different in my behaviour towards her.She asked me to leave the village as soon as possible.
    Recalling what happened then I realise everyone should think very well before doing or saying something.Beacause having regerts for something is the most unpleasant and scaring think that can happen to someone.

    I have always tried to live my life in a way I'll not regret later. But unfortunately there are situations in which we act out of character. Later, we feel ashamed, we feel sorry, and we wish we could turn back the clock. But that's impossible. Sad but true.
    There are some punctuation problems. Be sure to space after each period (full stop).

    That is pretty good except for the punctuation problems. (Note changes.)

    What do you mean by "a coffee" there?
