    Re: Is this sentence is correct?

    Uh, no. It's a little difficult to grasp what you're saying, but I'm going to take my best shot here.

    I am going to assume that by "swipe out" you mean to punch out or clock out or swipe some card as a correct procedure for leaving your place of work. So, you failed to follow this correct procedure upon leaving work because you were in a big hurry to catch a bus...and now your supervisor is upset and you want to explain why this occurred. Right. Got it. How about:

    "I'm sorry I forgot to swipe out, but I was in a big hurry to catch a bus."


    Or, simply stated as a reason without the "sorry" part, maybe just this:

    "I forgot to swipe out because I was in a big hurry to catch a bus."

    Incidentally, "swipe out" is not a common phrase for me personally, but I'll leave it alone since it makes sense and I can easily imagine a native speaker saying it...even though I have never actually heard it. Maybe I just need to get out more.

    Hope this helps.

    Greg
