I wasn't going to call you, because you had asked me to text you a few days ago and I don't have a cell phone on me these couple of days.

Please tell me if the sentence above is grammactically correct.

Thanks!

Aside from any grammatical issues, the sentence seems illogical to me. It just doesn't seem to make any sense as a whole.

I wasn't going to call you, because you ( had asked ) asked me to text you a few days ago and I haven't had a cell phone on me this last couple of days.

So the use of (had asked) is ok or not ok? Or are you saying that it could be used but doesn't have to be.

Thank you Clive!
Hi,

are you saying that it could be used but doesn't have to be Yes

Hi Clive,

Let's say I use the past present tense does it mean that the texting took place before a few days ago or during a few days ago?

So it's you had asked me to text you a few days ago - Past past
Havent had a cell phone last couple of days - present perfect
and me saying the above - present time.

Hi,

I wasn't going to call you, because you ( had asked ) asked me to text you a few days ago and I haven't had a cell phone on me this last couple of days.

Let's say I use the past present (I think you mean Past Perfect) tense does it mean that the texting took place before a few days ago or during a few days ago? The asking took place 'before' a few days ago. The sentence makes it sound like the texting didn't take place at all.

So it's you had asked me to text you a few days ago - Past past Past perfect

Havent had a cell phone last couple of days - present perfect Yes

and me saying the above - present time. Yes
