It is more important to say “tachanun” after shemoneh essreiy with nothing intervening, than to say “aleinu” together with the tzibbur.
Thus, if one finds oneself right after shemoneh essreiy (of Shacharis or Minchah) and the tzibbur is saying “aleinu”, one should say “tachanun”.

If the chazzan forgets to say the aneinu berachah in shemoneh esrei on a fast day:
- If he did not yet say shem haShem at the conclusion of the next berachah, he goes back to aneinu.
- If he already said shem haShem, he continues, says “aneinu” in shema koleinu, and concludes that berachah in the normal fashion: “…shomei’ah tefillah.”
