Example sentences using "Office"

Q: Please show me example sentences with Can I use -as well as + past tense?
"I went to post office to collect my letter as well as buying/bought a milk tea at Bubble Shop."
or what is the better way to write? I would like to know how to use "as well as", not "and".
Thank you!
.
A: “As well as” is similar to “and also”, “also” and “in addition”

In that sentence, using “as well as” is ok
“I went to the post office to collect my letter as well as the bubble tea shop to buy milk tea”
->because you went to different places, you need to say where you’re going first or else it sounds like you got bubble tea at the post office too
->this sentence structure is
[past tense] to [present tense]
so the verbs “collect” and “buy” are in present while “go” is in the past

Synonyms of "Office" and their differences

Q: What is the difference between at the office and in the office ?
A: They mean the same thing, most of the time.
The only time it would be different is if something was taking place outside of the office building, but still within the property. If a party took place in the parking lot of an office building, you would say "The party is at the office", but not "in the office".
Q: What is the difference between Bring me to the office and Take me to the office ?
Q: What is the difference between come directly up to my office and come directly to my office ?
A: In the first sentence with "up" it sounds like the office is above the person, like in a tall building where you need an elevator to get up to the top. The second sentence is what you would say if the office was nearby on the same floor.
Q: What is the difference between I have to go to the office until 10 o'clock. and I must go to the office until 10 o'clock. ?
A: アメリカ英語だと、ほとんどの場合, have toを使います。mustは「〜に違いない・きっと」という別の意味で使われます。

あと、untilは継続している状態の終わりを表し、byは締め切りの時間を表します。

I have to stay at work until 10 o'clock.

I have to go to work by 10 o'clock

I can't sleep until I finish this work.

I have to finish this work by tomorrow morning.
Q: What is the difference between She is supposed to come to this office. and She is going to come to this office. ?
A: I think the Japanese equivalent of "supposed to" is 「〜はず」

If I hear someone say "She is supposed to come to this office" I think the situation is that she is actually late, and the speaker is confused and doesn't know why she's late.

In the second case, "She is going to come to this office", I feel that the speaker is certain she will come and is trying to assure the people around him that there is not any problem.
