Is it me?

I'm wondering as am sitting here, waiting, am I that "anal" or is this strange? I want to know what you think, picture this:

Friend called me asking me to host a little get together for her to show and sell off some of her creation.

I accepted. We agreed on a date and time.

We've been exchanging emails, phone calls and everything is in motion.

It is now almost 4:30pm, the "show" is supposed to start at 6:30pm and she's nowhere to be seen.

Two years ago I did the same thing for her, she needed help. She showed up maybe 30 min. before the guests. I did ask her not to do the same thing this time. I did tell her I was "available and at home, from 3:30pm on". Why isn't she here already?

I'm ready and yet, I can't help and wonder if I'm the dumbass here? What do you think?

How did the jewellery evening go? Did she turn up in a reasonable amount of time?

You're definitely not a dumbass, particularly since you asked her not to show up 1/2 an hour before the festivities this time around.

I don't think you're a dumbass either, but really hope that she showed up in plenty of time.

I know anal and you're not my dad!

I hope it went well. I have friends like that. Blends never let you down!

people are asses.

Not anal, it's just etiquette and manners. But she sounds as though she is the creative sort but not too hot on the organising, herself included.

I hope it went well for both of you.

Pigeon: She showed up one hour before in the end. It turned out good, she managed to sell for about $700.

Barb: She wasn't ready when the first people arrived, she was still tagging things, oh well...

pawpads: She felt a little rush (too bad!) ;-)

GEM: LOL, thanks!

kara: True.

StJude: Oh yeah, you got that part, she's VERY artistic (as in "all over the place")!

Titaxy: She did show and leave late!

Glad to hear things went well. I am always nervous before an event I am hosting. This is why I drink before people get here.... I am not a great hostess.
