    We invited our neighbors to dinner today. The agreed time was 2 pm. It is now 215 pm. How long should we wait until we start eating?

    and I am getting hungry?

    If they are your only guests, I'd say to give them a call to be sure they are coming. If I'm having someone at 2PM, I don't plan on lunch being until 2:30 to give them time to get here. If I was eating at 2, I'd say something like "We'll eat at 2 so why don't you get here at 1:30 or 1:45." That way they know when to get there and when we're going to eat.

    So I'd give them a buzz.

    Did you say they lived upstairs from you? Smells do rise you know. Maybe they don't like garlic and were too polite to tell you.............:thumbs:

    Jim
