I know, you only needed to understand the phrase, but it is always better to wait a little bit, in case someone suggests a better alternative or a peer expresses some reservation... of course, not to mention the guiltiness a question closed in haste leaves the first and only answerer with in such cases ;-)

Anyway, bonne soirée!

Asker: I appreciate your advice however I would have never imagined that guiltiness could be felt under such circumstances. Gute nacht !
