    Re: Should...

    Hello V85

    You need to do two things: change "should go" to the present perfect, and change "now" to an adverb that means "at that time".

    Do you want to try again?

    I may well be wrong, Mr P, but isn't this,

    present perfect,

    the modal perfect?

    Or am I just being picayune?
