(By the way, although my earlier post has the air of a direct contradiction of yours, you weren't there when I began to answer. So no brusqueness intended.) Even if it were the case, there'd be no problem, that's just normal conversation.

All the best,

Thank you for your clarification. And I do agree with you.
