In this construction, like in all passive sentences, we need to use the past participle Remember that for regular verbs, this is the same as the simple past However, for irregular verbs , the past participle can be different!Be sure to review them and use the correct form of the verb in passive constructions.

cases:

  1. We make someone else do something for us, or we pay someone
    else to
    do something for us.

  2. Something negative happens and we have no control over it
    (something

First, let’s talk about when someone else does something that we ask of
them.

Example:

  • Jeremy’s car is in terrible condition! He is going to

    have his car fixed

    .
    He hopes it won’t be too expensive!

This means that Jeremy will not do the work himself. He will pay a
professional mechanic to do the work for him. He will

have the work done

to his car.

More examples:

  • The living room in Terry’s new house is a terrible
    salmon pink color. She wants to 

    have it painted

    before she moves in.

  • Lizzy can’t talk right now. She’s

    having her hair cut

    by the barber at the moment.

  • I need to go to the dentist today to

    have a tooth pulled

    .
    I hope it’s very fast!

  • Will you

    have
    your party catered

    , or are you going to cook all the food
    yourself?

  • Emily

    had
    her dress sewn

    by a professional seamstress. She wanted it
    to look perfect for her special day!

We can use this construction in any of the

have

depending on
the verb tense we are using. The rest of the construction (object +
past participle) remains exactly the same.

Now, let’s look at the second meaning of

have + object + past participle

.

We can also use this construction when something negative happens to us
when we don’t expect it or want it.

Example

:

  • The homeowner

    had
    all his money stolen

    ! The police still haven’t caught the
    mysterious robber.

The owner of the money did not want it to be stolen. This was a
negative experience that this person suffered.

More examples:

  • The children are all upset because they

    had their toys taken

    away. They wanted to keep playing!

  • The event was supposed to be outside, but look at all this
    rain! The organizer, Ms. Huffington, is terribly upset because she’s

    had her big event ruined

    .

  • Bruno is still not back at work. He says he’s

    had his heart broken

    !
    It’s so terrible that he’s going through that divorce.

  • Phil doesn’t want to come back to class. He

    had his feelings hurt

    last week, and he just isn’t enthusiastic about the subject anymore.

Poor Phil! He suffered a negative experience that he did not expect! He
certainly didn’t want to be teased!

These constructions can seem confusing at first, but with practice,
you’ll feel comfortable with them. If you’re still not sure how to use
the passive voice, look at
