  • Is he shrinking his time or just not stretching it? – Jim Mar 31 '18 at 17:19
  • I mean he is just not stretching it. Basically, he wants to stick to the stipulated time. – JPS Mar 31 '18 at 17:28
  • From what location is he going home early? Work? Church? The ball game? School? A party? This person sounds like a "home body" to me! – rhetorician Mar 31 '18 at 17:28
  • A person who works at an office. – JPS Mar 31 '18 at 17:31

If he wants to stick to the stipulated time, he would be a clock-watcher.
