As a rule, I'm not a stickler about punctuality, as long as I'm waiting in my home, but I must say, coming two hours late to a dinner party in any home is just unforgivably rude. At least call to say you're going to be late! In retrospect, I'm not sure why I didn't snack on something...oh wait, I remember why, because "Melinda" kept insisting they'd be there any moment. Ha. Ha.
