I have more confusing sentences that were written by native Americans that seem to mix tenses. I'm not sure why these can be correct.
We noticed that you have created a return label for this order.
Does this make sense? Isn't it wrong like the sentence that was determined wrong in my previous post ("She has agreed to my terms, so I only did my part yesterday")?
You don't want to do this. Trust me, I wish I hadn't.
Why not use "I wish I didn't"?
We enjoyed peace. If only it had lasted.
Why not use "if only it lasted" when this hopeful sentence took place after the peace they enjoyed was gone?
"It has been a long time since all of us have been gathered in one place."
Why not "since all of us gathered in one place"? Don't people usually say "Ever since I read that, I've become smarter" instead of saying "Ever since I have read that I have become smarter"?
"I had been told that anyone who did that becomes a bad person."
Why should I use "had been told" when somebody doing something bad isn't relevant to what I've been told?
"People who have had their belongings taken will turn into miserable people."
Why not say "people who have their belongings taken will turn into miserable people"?
