- SHOULD + HAVE + PAST PARTICIPLE
I should have listened to my parents more when I was a teenager. (I didn’t listen to my parents. Now I’m a poor artist who can’t pay the bills.)
- COULD + HAVE + PAST PARTICIPLE
I could have chosen a different career. (I didn’t like my parents’ suggestions and chose to go to art school.)
- WOULD + HAVE + PAST PARTICIPLE
I wish I had listened to my parents. I would have been a rich doctor now. (Unfortunately, I’m just a poor artist and nobody knows my name.)
