The Modal Perfect.

You should have told me that you were calling a taxi. I have a company account with Ooba and I get special rates.

You shouldn’t have told your mum that I was having a scan, she is such a worrier.

Should I have lied to her, she could have found out afterward. She could have taken it badly.

She might have thought that we were shutting her out. I could have offended her and she can be rather sensitive.

I could see that the first time I met her. Was she ever in amateur dramatics?

Don’t start darling. Those who live in greenhouses shouldn’t throw stones.

OK, it’s a fair cop. I should have avoided any confrontation.

My record in winning domestic arguments compares only with that of English world cup triumphs in the last fifty years.

I spoke to our friends Martin and Glennis, they might have found a new house at last.

Where’s the taxi it should have arrived by now?  I ought to phone them.

Wait I think they must have had a problem with traffic.

A car sounds its horn outside. That must be the taxi, we should get a move on.

Have you got everything?
