Well...that's The Baffled Knight, (Child #112). There are several versions on the DT -you can find them through the "Child" number. There are also French versions. It's generally something on the lines of "You should have gone for it when you had the chance". Presumably politeness -at any rate when it amounted to indecisiveness- was not always appreciated!
