    Cool telling about a situation in the past?

    Hi Guys:

    I am trying to write a letter to explain a situation about what happened between a person "X" and me in the past. The situation is like this:

    I signed a contract, then X asked me to do additional job after that (both actions are in the past)

    Now, I am trying to explain this situation by the following sentence, which I am not sure wether correct or can be improved. The sentence is:

    When X asked me to do the job, I was already signed and submitted the contract.

    Can you guys give me any suggestions

    Thanks heaps!
