    future/present

    Hi

    If Seb didn't come with us to the desert, everyone would be very disappointed.

    --- does the first part of the sentence refers to the future and the second one to the present? I'm not sure I understand it.

    If Seb didn't come with us to the desert, everyone would be very disappointed.
    The first part of this sentence is written in the Past Tense form of the verb, and the second in the Future tense form.


    The sentence doesn't make sense - it is illogical.
    The sentence should be:
    If Seb doesn't come with us to the desert, everyone will be very disappointed.

    Can you see why?
