    -Sorry, I'll go to see Hamlet At the National Theatre. 'I am going to see Hamlet at the National Theatre.' Present continuous with future indication.

    2-When I got to the station, I realised I left the tickets at home. 'I had left the tickets at home.' Past perfect.
    Firstly, you might try saying please.

    You sound like you are giving orders. You should be more polite; learn to say please and thank you.

    I wrote my questions in a hurry and definitely I didn't mean giving orders. You could have criticized me in a better way without insulting!

    Where IS the insult in what was pointed out?

    It would seem, to some, the mere challenge to their notion that others are but servants, is the insult.
