to loosely follow normal working hours
Man, I've got to Furey today, I've got a 6 p.m. flight to catch, think I'll leave around noon.
One who is a good fella, friendly, rich, charming and british to the core

To loosely interpret the application of the 24 hour clock to one's own work schedule with the goal of stretching two weeks of vacation in to several weeks.
- "Coming in a few minutes late" - ie around 10:30 just in time to beat McDonald's cutoff of their breakfast menu.
- "Leaving a few minutes early to take an earlier flight" - ie a noon flight; sometimes involves leaving around 9:30 am to allow for pre-trip shopping or errands(eg Shaving cream; doctor; dentist; medicine; etc...)
I get two weeks of company paid vacation plus another two weeks of Furey time
