@WS2 I've edited a minor detail, so you can now remove your vote. I think what happened is that sgroves fixed the error within the 5 minute grace period, so it didn't count as a separate edit, so your vote remained locked in.

comment Regarding the usage of some 'bad' language
@Frank: the question "Does blasphemy and swearing have an important literary use?" does not regard an existing work - as far as that goes, it's fine at Writers. Course it might be a duplicate.

comment Opposite of "to my credit"?
It's important to notice that chagrin does not confer any responsibility to the speaker, whereas shame does. I think the OP is looking for a term which specifically implicates his misdoing.
