    I wanted to ask my friend to complete my work. "But he did it before me asking him."

    Re: he did it before me asking him.

    It shouldn't be two sentences.

    I wanted to ask my friend to complete my work but he did it before I asked him.
    I wanted to ask my friend to complete my work but he did it before I could ask him.
    I wanted to ask my friend to complete my work but he did it before I had a chance to ask him.
    I wanted to ask my friend to complete my work but he did it without my asking.
    Remember - if you don't use correct capitalisation, punctuation and spacing, anything you write will be incorrect.

    My friend would have asked me to get his work done but I got it done without him asking. Is this sentence correct?
