    knock off VS get off

    There are two sentences:
    All the workmen knock off at 4:30.
    I usually get off at six o'clock.
    Is there any difference in using these phrasal verb or they are absolutely interchangeable?

    Re: knock off VS get off

    I'd say they're mostly interchangeable. The first is less formal.
    I am not a teacher.
