    Default off out

    I can give a guess, but not really sure about a precise meaning.


    Two guys are having a chat, one of them's girlfriend is here too.
    One of the guys wants to leave them being alone and then he says:

    I am off out. (I am about to leave)

    Is it correct ?

    Should be, "I'll be off (now)." (= "I am leaving.")

    Or:

    I'm off.

    I'll be off then.

    I'm heading out. (if the conversation is taking place indoors)

    I'll leave you two alone.

    (1990's slang): I'm 'outing'.
