    by two o'clock

    "By two o'clock I was desperate for something to eat."



    What does "by two o'clock" mean? Before two o'clock? After two o'clock? About (=before or after) two o'clock?

    Re: by two o'clock

    It means I started feeling hungry before two o'clock, and when it got to two o'clock I was very hungry.
