    (Not a teacher)

    3rd Conditional(Lamenting finished past events which are unable to change anymore)

    Express Regrets
    If I had worked harder, I would have passed the test.(But you didn't)

    Bewailing one's fate
    If I had been born in a rich family, I would not have worked like a dog.(But in fact you were poor and were working like a dog)

    Expressing bitterness about a past event
    If he hadn't been driving so fast, his wife would not have died in the crash.(But he did drive so fast that killed his wife)

    Speaking retrospectively
    If it hadn't been raining, I would have caught up with the aeroplane..
    (Hey babe! Don't cry over the spilling milk. Let bygone be bygone.)
