    Might have resigned

    Hi guys,

    Please check "My HR has asked me to meet her next to next monday. I might have given out my resignation or I might have resigned by that time". Can "May or might have done be used in this way"? If we are not sure about future happening. Something might be going to happen.

    Can "may" or "might" have done be used in this way(no quotation mark here) (no question mark here) if we are not sure about a future happening. Something might be going to happen.
    Both of your example responses at the top use the word "Might". You haven't given us an example with "may".

    Please look at my notes and corrections in red above.
    Remember - if you don't use correct capitalisation, punctuation and spacing, anything you write will be incorrect.

    Re: Might have resigned

    Does anybody really use "next to next Monday"?

    Re: Might have resigned

    What does "Responses at top" mean? If I have used "Might" correctly. So I think "May" can be usd in the similar way because they both are almost same.
