Sample: Poor Use of Tenses

Sample: Poor Use of Tenses

I go to the store and I bought milk.

Go is a present tense verb. Bought is a past tense verb. Bought should be buy milk since these two events both occur at the same time.

I will eat fish for dinner and drank milk with my dinner.

Will eat is a future tense verb but drank is a past tense verb. Since the dinner is going to happen in the future, it is not possible that the milk was drunk already.
