- I have never treated her like that.
I know I can put more emphasis by saying
- I never once treated her like that.
I am thinking of this sentence in perfect aspect. I am wondering what would be the idiomatic usage in the present perfect aspect. I mean, when would someone say this instead of the past simple variant?
I've never once treated her like that.
Is there any specific case for which we'd better to use the perfect aspect?
