'Cause when I called him we haven't spoken in a week or so.

I'm trying to say that when I called him we haven't spoken so therefore I didn't know what was going on.

Thanks!

I don't understand why it's hadn't though!

Let's say hypothetically I'm having a conversation with Grammar geek.

Hi Grammar Geek, guess what! I haven't spoken to my friend in a week or so!

Wouldn't that be a correct sentence?

Thanks!

You can wait more than 45 minutes before assuming no one will answer your post. Some of us even sleep at night.

In another thread you said you didn't understand the perfect tenses.

There is the present perfect tense: I haven't spoken to him.

There is the past perfect tense: I hadn't spoken to him.

The present perfect connects in some way to the present. It relates a past event to something now.

The past perfect is for a past event that is even further in the past than something else.

in your original, you refer to a time in the past, and say that it had been even further in the past since you last spoke. That's the past perfect.

In your more recent post, you're talking to us NOW. That relates to the present, so you use the present perfect.

This explanation is not at all complete. I strongly suggest you google "present perfect tense" and "past perfect tense" and see if you can learn more about these.
Thank you very much Grammar Geek. I know you guys probably don't get paid for doing this so I really appreciate the help! Really! I haven't even read your post yet!
