Hello all,

A  colleague  of mine wrote in a business communica-
tion:

  Please, contact X when I am off.

meaning when he is off work, unavailable.  I  opined
that  he  was  wrong,  but he consulted another col-
league of ours with formal training in English,  who
approved this wording.  Was I right or they?
