  • The word “departed”? (D.A.R)

    I’ve been recording the comings and goings at my site for some time now. It’s mainly employees so I know everyone by name. An example of an entry in my D.A.R. would be...

    ”Charles arrived at 15:30” or “Charles departed at 16:00”.

    My question lies with the word “departed”. It’s obvious I’m recording their departure time, but I can’t get over how the word departed suggests the person is now deceased lol. Thoughts?

        Actually, DJB204 brings up a good point - language changes constantly. I wonder if there are any other terms that used to be standard that aren't anymore?
        I know "ICE" used to be short for "In Case of Emergency;" I don't use that abbreviation anymore because people would confuse it with the federal agency.
