I work in an office and I am usually the last one to leave. But I want to make it clear to my boss that I am off after 5:00 PM. How do I say this without sounding rude?

Putting boundaries between work and personal time can be tricky, but it's important to make sure you're taking care of yourself. You might want to consider talking to your boss about your after-work plans. Maybe you can try saying "I'm planning on leaving at 5:00 today, is there anything you need me to do before then?" This way, you're letting your boss know your plans and giving them a chance to ask for anything they may need.

Don't be afraid to stand up for yourself and your personal time! It's important to maintain a healthy work-life balance.
