He got along very well, but he was disgusted that he couldn't read and write like other children. "Why should this have happened to me?" he asked accusingly.
For should have+p.p. I read it means that something didn't happen.However, I can't get the meaning of it here?
Will you please help me? Don't we say, "Why did it happen to me?"
Thanks in advance.
