    I come across a question which i would like to discuss with all the members over here at DP. I came across the question about the time wishes which is a greeting with the words like :-

    Good Morning
    Good After Noon
    Good Evening
    Good Night

    These are the words generally used as a professional time wishes on meeting someone.

    Question: Suppose the time is 2:00 Pm and i met with one of my senior officer can i time wish him with Good Morning??

    I have heard about when leaving for the day we can say Good Night no matter what the time is. So like wise when i am meeting my officer in the afternoon but it's the first time in the day so can this be accepted or I have to greet him by "Good After Noon" as per the time.

    Please tell me the appropriate time wishes.

    To my understanding here is how it should be used:
    Before 12.00 its good morning.
    After 12.00 its good afternoon.

    Hopefully you do not need to work long enough to need to greet your boss good evening or good night, but if you need to.
    From 5.00 PM, its good evening.

    If I am wrong, can someone please correct me :)

    That's basically it. I do think "good night" is from 5pm until 7am, but if you're parting (hell, I've said it to many a lady in my time, and it's usually at 2am in the morning ;))
