[Zanreo] Never mind!

If it happened earlier, it would have made somewhat more sense. Then again, that might have been giving them a bit too much credit...

'Them' = HAM, HAF, HCM, HCF, animals?
It = a thing, an event, some action, some phenomena, the result of something? Something good, bad, unusual or neutral?

'Them' = HAM, HAF H/A/M but irrel, HCM, HCF, animals?
It = a thing, an event this is closest, some action or this, some phenomena, the result of something? Something good, bad, unusual or neutral? I'd say neutral

OK, 'them' = singular or plural?
Event or action = something: he did, someone else did, someone else did to him, he did to someone else?
Did he do it deliberately, accidentally, reluctantly, negligently, to himself, to another or others?
Did it involve work, play, a game? Was something scheduled?
Presumably, when it happened, it made no sense then? Or little sense?
Was there an audience? Other/s there to witness it? Or its aftermath? Their reactions relevant? Did it lead to something else happening?

OK, 'them' = singular or plural? plural
Event or action = something: he did, someone else did this, someone else did to him, he did to someone else? but neither of these
Did he do it deliberately, accidentally, reluctantly, negligently, if "he" = the ones who might have been given a bit too much credit", possibly this or accidentally but we can only guess to himself, to another or others? i'd say this
Did it involve work some kind of work involved here, yes, play, a game? Was something scheduled? Something was, yes
Presumably, when it happened, it made no sense then? Or little sense? Yes, little to no sense at that point
Was there an audience? You could say there was an audience of some kind, yes Other/s there to witness it? yes Or its aftermath? yes Their reactions relevant? possibly Did it lead to something else happening? you could say that

some of these are kinda hard to answer, might be a slight FA going on here

So, do we have a person or persons (A) witnessing a thing some other people did (B) ?
And A is thinking that B should have done the thing sooner? And if B had done it sooner, it would have made more sense? But even then, B might have messed it up, caused confusion, done it poorly? Did B try to do the thing properly? Did B fail or partly fail?
Did this happen to you or did you witness it? Multiple people? (list of numbers)
Was it a service, e.g. gardening? A job? Recreation? Making something? Wedding or other celebration involved?
Was it a catastrophe? Did it cause an uproar? A comedy?

So, do we have a person or persons (A) witnessing a thing some other people did (B) ? not exactly WITNESSING, but two different "parties" are involved here... I'm guessing A here is "would be giving them too much credit" and B is "if it happened earlier it would have made more sense"
And A is thinking that B should have done the thing sooner? Unknown And if B had done it sooner, it would have made more sense? Yes But even then, B might have messed it up, caused confusion, done it poorly? Possibly, considering... Did B try to do the thing properly? probably Did B fail or partly fail? I'll say yesish
Did this happen to you no or did you witness it? yesish, DOYD of "witness" Multiple people? (list of numbers) hard to say the exact number, but a group of other people "witnessed" it in the same way
Was it a service, e.g. gardening? A job? Recreation? Making something? Wedding or other celebration involved? none of these
Was it a catastrophe? not really Did it cause an uproar? no A comedy? Well... probably not intended as such but some people considered it funny

DOYD of witness: read about? Hear about? See on video?
Was the thing done in: seconds? Minutes? Hours? Days? Weeks? Months? Years? Repeatedly? Was it intended to create publicity? Earn money? Help someone?

Did it make no sense at all? Was it done out of malice? Stupidity? Was it done accidentally? Was it done in order to solve a problem? Create humor? Destroy something?

Did it make no sense at all? Considering what had happened earlier, it seemed kind of strange Was it done out of malice? unlikely Stupidity? possibly part of it Was it done accidentally? Was it done in order to solve a problem? Create humor? Destroy something? I'd say none of the others (though like mentioned it did create unintentional humor)

Was something said? Sung? Yelled? Whispered? Were relevant words used? Did the person appear slow? Stupid? Ignorant? Mistaken?
