Q & A

Is being ‘fashionably late’ to a party or dinner date still in style? Or is being ‘on time’ a better fashion statement?

    • I agree with Tressy.  Being a “little” early is a good thing.  Being on time is a must in my book.  It shows your host that you respect her/his time.

      I was just talking about this with a friend that invited me to her home for a dinner party “get-to-gather”  I was asked to provide a steamed vegetable dish which I happily did.  The problem. .  dinner was scheduled for 5:00pm. . I was the only one who showed up on time.  The other guest started arriving at 6:00pm.  Dinner was not served until 7:00 pm.  Guess what my contribution to the dinner looked like when it was time to be served?

      Case in point. .  be on time.  It’s rude and most important we want to show our host that we apperciate and value her hard work.  It’s a social gift.happy

      Always grateful

    • I agree with everything you all said.  That is the biggest pet peeve I have with my family.  They are nortoriously late and it drives me nuts!  Its not fair to anybody!!  Ive read somewhere that it’s a subcontious control issue with the person that is consistently late.  I dont know what it is but I do know its rude!!

      xoxo

    • On time is just right.  More than 15 minutes late is terribly rude I think.

    • I agree being on time is very important espcially when it invovles food such as a dinner, lunch etc... just an open cocktail party where people are in and out is another thing but overall being on time is important

    • I agree.  Late is NEVER fashionable.  It’s downright rude.  At my house, I specify a time we‘re going to eat and if someone isn’t here, they‘re just going to have to eat cold food when they do show up.
