    now that...we should

    Now that she's angry, we _______ leave her alone.

    A. should B. might as well

    The given answer is B. But I think A works just as well. Am I right?

    Thank you in advance.

    Re: now that...we should

    I think it is preferable. The second suggests, 'well, our efforts succeeded - we made her angry. I don't think we can get her any more angry than this today, so we might as well call it a day, might as well leave her alone and find someone else to pick on.'
