I worked as a messenger boy even though I hadn’t had any experience. (the poster)
I worked as a messenger boy, even though I have never had any experience.
(My little change in the above sentence, for the time)
For I read in this novel The Undomestic Godess the phrase: "I have never failed an interview in my life." So, I think this could be the same verb tense, once both of them are informing about something that happened long ago, perhaps in the similar circumstances. But, it´s open to peer comment, and I, myself will study it a little more, I am indeed going "by hear" now. I will try the books soon, to confirm.
I worked as a messenger boy even though I didn't have any experience. (Johannes)
Makes tons of sense, Johannes, I would go there at first sight.
Same as above; I will try stabilish some difference between the two, if there is any.
You know, verb tenses are my Achiles heel.
But, I don´t know why, but I think they can be used. Only that is slight difference in
use (that difference will be better explained by teachers around, or as sooner as I can).
I´ll be back He Man...!
In fact, the part in wich there is the bit "...though I hadn’t had any experience." seems unusual, to say the least. But, I need more study. I want not fell off the tightrope by being hasty!
See you later, PP.
