EN: She stole/has stolen it


Senior Member

According to you, if

My sister stole my speaker about 3 months ago.
If I reply to someone" my sister has stolen my speaker so I can't put music " it is correct ? (If I want to emphasize the fact that I can't put music), or I could just emphasize the action with the past simple.

Thank you

    In this case, I would probably just use the past simple "My sister stole my speaker so..."
    In addition, the phrase "put music" does not really make any sense, some other options would be to say I can't play any music or I can't put on any music.
