Scenario:

Yesterday: I'm talking to my pal about my fitness schedule. The fitness center guy didn't mail me any information.

Today: I'm there at the fitness center and they have figured out my schedule. My pal calls me and I say: "You know how I don't have my schedule? I had to go to that fitness center so early today to figure out my schedule."

I'm not sure if I should use 'don't' or 'didn't' ? I still don't have that schdule that they were supposed to mail to me. So are both of them fine?

1. You know how I don't have my schedule? I had to go to that fitness center so early today to figure out my schedule.

2. You know how I didn't have my schedule? I had to go to that fitness center so early today to figure out my schedule.

Thanks.

Anne,

I think even "when" would be understood that way in English, too, but it would be much, much rarer than "how" in the same context. And for heaven's sake, be careful where you put your letters!

P.S. The French admit to using microwaves??? What will this do to the reputation of your famous cuisine??? (Or is it only used to burn trash - like those letters?!!)
Oh, I only wrote it to translate what we would say in French, would never use it in English, now that I know better!

BTW, I mostly use the microwave to heat up those little plats I previously cooked with sooo much love!
