However, I must be missing something. For instance, the party at the neighbors' began yesterday afternoon, and at 7:30 this morning, was still going strong.
On another occasion, friends of ours here were invited to a wedding, and were reassured that yes, it started at 7:00 PM.
At 9:00 PM, no one had shown up, though a few arrived by 9:15. The food made it by 11:00 PM.
To be fair, on a doctor appointment the other day we only waited an hour, which is on par for a lot of offices in the U.S., I'm sorry to say.
On the other hand, church starts on time!
I guess it will just take a while to learn which time zone we are in for what. I was looking at a watch the other day...
Well, we hope that the time-space continuum in your particular sector is more predictable.
