Why time do you want them to turn up then? Better than being late I say...

supadupapupascupa Fri 16-Nov-12 17:18:34

haha! don't tell me that's because you are late?

HellothisisJoanie Fri 16-Nov-12 17:19:39

i once sent a mate for a walk around the block, i was wiping the kitchen surfaces

i thought everyone KNEW it wasnt the done thing to be there on the dot

TequilaMockingMagpie Fri 16-Nov-12 17:19:59

Why ?

usualsuspect3 Fri 16-Nov-12 17:20:17

I'm usually early grin

You would hate me.

Labootin Fri 16-Nov-12 17:20:25

That has to be the most random op ever ....

Lougle Fri 16-Nov-12 17:20:34

If your invite says 7 pm, but you actually want to have people arrive at 7.15 pm, put 7.15 pm on the invite...

BellaVita Fri 16-Nov-12 17:21:09

Fgs woman... There is no please in some people.

TequilaMockingMagpie Fri 16-Nov-12 17:21:22

So why not put a later time on invite ?

You did not send a friend round the block ! I refuse to believe someone would do that , weird .

BellaVita Fri 16-Nov-12 17:21:35

Usual me too! grin

MousyMouse Fri 16-Nov-12 17:21:48

I'm usually early, so am the one to wipe the kitchen surfaces while the host freshes him/herself up.

Always half an hour late for parties, innit?

Even I know that, and I am stupidly punctual.

Why? If you don't want people to come at that time, invite them for a later time confused
I always think it's rather sad to have invited people to a party and then so many of them don't come when you ask them too, not because they are elsewhere but because they somehow think it's 'cool' to be late.
Indeed, it's rude, in my book.

usualsuspect3 Fri 16-Nov-12 17:23:48

I have a thing about being late, I just can't do it.

TequilaMockingMagpie Fri 16-Nov-12 17:24:10

I hope she didn't come back , I would have buggered off to the pub .

Half hour late is fine too , but on time is on time , and that is ok .

DioneTheDiabolist Fri 16-Nov-12 17:24:28

Huh?confused

I don't understand. The time on the invitation is the time you want the guests to arrive. Why would you put the wrong time on your invites OP?

HellothisisJoanie Fri 16-Nov-12 17:24:37

its not cool to be there clutching your Gallo at the door. smacks fo desperation. i would nEVER be there bang on - ew no very lower middle

HellothisisJoanie Fri 16-Nov-12 17:25:36

Tequlia of COURSE she came back

god you lot are so demodé

usualsuspect3 Fri 16-Nov-12 17:25:38

I would be pissed off if I invited people for 7 and they all turned up late.

HellothisisJoanie Fri 16-Nov-12 17:26:29

not LATE
just not there at the minute like bloody these two

usualsuspect3 Fri 16-Nov-12 17:26:36

TBH I rarely get invited to parties so I would be desperate to get at the wine. grin

WiseKneeHair Fri 16-Nov-12 17:26:52

I'm obviously very lower middle class then. grin although I wouldn't have a bottle of Gallo with me

TequilaMockingMagpie Fri 16-Nov-12 17:27:04

However bringing gallo is only ok if she is going to drink it .
