Get home, think you're connected to WiFi and watch a movie? That's 5:13 pm, not exactly an unusual time to be using data.

Yes, because your daily work schedule was clearly stated in your initial post. Check the data usage on your phone. If you're using an android device it'll tell you exactly what app used the data.

Make sure your system and Apps updates are done ONLY over WiFi; that could explain the spike if ALL your apps got updated on the background while you were disconnected to the Office WiFi.

@TJ or an OS upgrade.  Some such as major version upgrades can be multiple gigabytes.
