    Good morning.


    SALES ASSOCIATE (in store): You have been looking at those sweaters for one hour. HAVE you DECIDED yet which one you like?

    GEORGE: Yes. I HAVE finally DECIDED to buy this red one.

    SALES ASSOCIATE: Fine. That will be $25.49, please.

    *****

    MOTHER: It's 6 p.m. Why are you so late getting home? You always get home by five.

    SUSAN: Oh, it was such a beautiful day that I DECIDED not to take the bus. I DECIDED to walk home.

    Have a nice day!

    And abelahcen may find it useful to remember that 'have decided' is NOT the past perfect; it is the present perfect. From the question I guess that abelahcen has not yet been introduced to the past perfect, so I won't explain it now...
