If you are refering "vous" formally to single person would "Vous n'êtes pas arrivé en retard". Arrivé without the "s".
Well, I did it again, and my frustration is really mounting.
I went with "des ordannances" thinking that 1) "some" is implied here (one goes to the pharmacy for some/any prescriptions) and 2) prescriptions are countable.
Since the answer is "les", I have to ask: does the use of "on" (instead of "nous") automatically imply the statement is general and thus the use of le/la/l'/les?
Would these then be correct? Nous servons du café. -and- On serve le café. That does not seem right to me.
Or, is it just because I translated just the part of the sentence ("or for prescriptions at the pharmacy") and not that part of the sentence as part of the whole sentence...?
Maybe I need clarification on how to distinguish "general" statements from "some/any" statements or learn if there is some additional concept that I need to consider when deciding between les and des.

This is not consistent, but it is also not infrequent. It helps me know that I DI know the material and can move on.
In the phrase, "Enfin, après vous être imprégnés de tous les paysages somptueux,", I don't understand how "vous être imprégnés" using the infinitive in the French corresponds to the English translation, "after soaking up". Is "être" a typo where "êtes" should have been used instead?
All the examples are with the verb ETRE.(TO BE). Is it correct to assume that this construct can work for ALL(??) 'copular' type verbs. I can't see it working with non 'copular type' verbs.
1)He looks great..and she does too == il a l'air bien et elle l'a l'air aussi(not sure of this one)
2)The roses smell pleasant and the carnations smell pleasant too== les roses sentent agréables et les oeilets le sentent aussi(smells ok to me).
3)what about a sentence like "she became angry then they became angry too== elle s'est mis en colere ensuite ils le se sont mis (??)
Just asking 'for a friend' could you add a note in the lesson that the direct object pronoun occupies its usual place before the verb ...although it is acting like an adjective,
