    In time out time

    Hi guys,

    If my office starts at 9 am so I think we would say it is the "in time" and if it ends at 5 pm so it would be the "out time", so can I say "Today I would leave 1 hour late from the out time" or "I would come late from the in time", please tell me the correct formation.

    Re: In time out time

    Native speakers do not use these. In AmE we recognize "start time" and "finish time." In the old days of punch-clocks, I also heard "clock-in time" and "clock-out time", but I think they are nowadays obsolete.

    Re: In time out time

    One already helped you and I agree with him. We don't use "in time" and "out time".

    Re: In time out time

    Why don't you try it with the vocabulary you have been given?

    Re: In time out time

    So can I say "I would leave 1 hour late from the finish time or come 1 hour late or early from the start time"?

    Re: In time out time

    So, I would leave 1 hour after the finish time or come 1 hour before the start time, is it fine now?
