    USE of the Word "At differnt times"

    Hi All,

    Please help me with this.

    Last week I went to office at different timings (Without following office hours due to some emergency).
    Now I want to say this sentence to my friends. Can I use it as following way.

    "During last week I went to office at diffenent timings (or mutiple timings / various timings)."

    Please suggest the best way to say this sentence.

    Timings definitely doesn't work for me. I would say I didn't keep office hours last week.

    Just say "last week" without the "during,"
    I'm not a teacher, but I write for a living. Please don't ask me about 2nd conditionals, but I'm a safe bet for what reads well in (American) English.

    I didn't keep/work regular [office] hours last week.

    Be careful with your spelling. In just one post you used "differnt", "different" and "diffenent". Only the second is correct.
    Remember - if you don't use correct capitalisation, punctuation and spacing, anything you write will be incorrect.

    That is the Indian dialect. They use it all the time.
