@veryberry13:  first of all, RUDE (her not you)! Yes, that would drive me nuts! I work in admissions, and I swear these students know what time I leave every day but will still come in 5 minutes before I’m about to go and ask me to help them with this that or the other, or will come in crying and need me to listen to them and of course I always help, dammit. I love my students and I sincerely enjoy helping them however I can, but seriously, not only do they know I have to leave at a certain time, but I will see them for 30 minutes prior playing Angry Birds but they can’t come see me until 5 seconds before quittin’ time. No home training, lol.

@veryberry13:  It would bother me, but more because someone was trying to ask for things to keep me late when it’s time to go.

Ironically, this sorta happened to me today.  I was trying to wrap up some work to send off, then a co-worker wanted me to go with her to talk to someone in our department– and he can go on and on about stuff.  I didn’t need to be there, and I was rather annoyed I couldn’t send something off by the end of the day like I told someone because I was dragged off to listen to this guy pontificate about crap that doesn’t matter.

@veryberry13:  My boss is famous for that.  You stand up to leave and it reminds him that he had to ask you a very involved question.  We’ve learned to very quietly leave and not walk in front of his office.

I got him once – made him turn his computer back on and everything at 7pm.

I think you might be overthinking it. Maybe she didn’t know what time you get off? Or didn’t realize that you had to leave right at 6?

There have been times where I have asked someone for help right at the end of the day without even giving a thought to the time. If she did this all the time I would certainly be annoyed but I think if it’s the first time or it only happens occasionally I wouldn’t be bothered by it.
