    uses of "Should"

    Would you please be kind enough to let me know about some of the unconventional and less employed uses of the modal Auxillary "Should"?

    Re: uses of "Should"

    It can be used as an alternative for would with I and we- this is not very common nowadays, at least in British English.
    It can be used instead of if in a first conditional- should you see her = if you see her

    Why not list the uses you already know, with example sentences; then others can add to the list?
