While some kids just complain when snow gets in their mittens and their hands get wet, 10-year-old Kathryn Gregory decided to do something about it. She created the first pair of Wristies as she wanted to keep her wrists warm and dry. Wristies are long gloves with no fingers and they are worn under your mittens and coat. They can also be worn by themselves.

(from an English textbook for junior high school students in China, published by Pearson Education and Beijing Normal University Press)

The first sentence seems weird to me. I wonder if the verbs ‘complain’, ‘gets’ and ‘get’ should be in their past form: complained, got and got so that they can agree with ‘decided’.


Many thanks in advance.
