    punctuation

    Are these sentences correct:

    1-I messed up things, as usual when I am in a hurry.
    (MEANING:I messed up things, as I usually do when I am in a hurry. NON-RESTRICTIVE)

    2-I did everything as usual when I am in a hurry.
    (MEANING:I did everything in the same way I do when I am in a hurry. RESTRICTIVE)

    Thus, "I messed up things, as usual, when I am in a hurry.

    2-I did everything as usual when I am in a hurry.
    (MEANING:I did everything in the same way I do when I am in a hurry. RESTRICTIVE)
