She noted down my fax number so that she could send me the documents when she got to the office.
What is the meaning of `got to the office'. (I think: go to the office)
Is it right or something else?
Could you explain?
When she got to the office means when she arrived at the office and is correct.
As I got to the office is correct as it means As I arrived or reached the office.
As I got the office means As I received the office which woould be expressed as when I took over the rent of the office or bought the office or was given the office.
The rent was increased 100 percent as soon as I got the office.
Yes, 'get the office' means something. But not even I would assume that someone would wait until they came into possession of an office before sending a fax (and I think up some pretty extreme contexts, I know. )
I was referring to the context of the original question - 'She noted down my fax number so that she could send me the documents when she got to the office.'
I was saying that is unlikely that anyone would wait until they owned an office before sending a fax.
