    Re: Have a good time: will/did you?

    In what context do you want to use these expressions?

    Only from a tag question viewpoint.

    Re: Have a good time: will/did you?

    Context is always important,

    The first is possible as an imperative wish. The second is possible as a conversational way of asking if someone had a good time.

    Re: Have a good time: will/did you?

    I agree with 5jj, but for the conversational question, I would use "Had a good time time, did you??

    Re: Have a good time: will/did you?

    I'd use "have", not "had".

    Re: Have a good time: will/did you?

    I could use both have and had.

    Re: Have a good time: will/did you?

    May I ask a question here?

    Is "Had a good time, did you?" equal to "You had a good time, did you?"

    Thank you.

    Re: Have a good time: will/did you?

    Yes, but the "normal" tag question there would be ""didn't you".
