    15 minutes to starting time

    I was standing in the cafeteria and having a word with my friends. Suddenly my manager came and asked whether I was going to spend whole day in cafeteria. AT that moment the time was 6:15 and our starting time is 6:30. So "it was still 15 to starting time or 15 minutes for starting time".

    Re: 15 minutes to starting time

    It was 15 minutes until your start[ing] time.

    Here's how the exchange would go if this happened to me.

    Manager: Are you going to spend the whole day in the cafeteria?
    Me: It's 6.15. I don't start for another 15 minutes.
