"When you went to the toilet this morning you had found abit of blood"
Is this sentence correct for grammar? The activity going to the toilet is not done firstly ?
I saw this sentence somewhere.So the writer wrote it wrong ?
In fact the original sentence suggests that first you found the blood and then you went to the toilet, and I don't think that is what the intended meaning is. If that is the intended meaning, there are much clearer ways to express that meaning.
If this is the case then, as suggested, the past perfect is incorrect.
The sequence of verbs (went, found) follow the same sequence as the events did in reality so only the primary past tense is required.
I am not a teacher.
I agree with the last two posts. The original poster asked if that past perfect sentence was correct, and we all seem to agree that it is not correct.
