We are eating at 12.  They were all told.  My wife busted her ass to have everything ready for 12.

Ten after and no one is fucking here.  3 brothers and their families, parents.... No one.

Glad I started drinking at 9

You eat dinner at noon?  

I would be fine if you didn't wait for me and ate without me.  I don't want to eat dinner in the middle of the day.

That's a douche move. It's not a fucking cocktail party, where fashionably late is expected.

OP, if you're coherent at around 6 o'clock, please let us know what transpired.

Bingo.  Makes for a fun little inside joke for you and the wife during dinner.

I tell people food will be done between 1-2. Grazing starts whenever you want something.

No formal sitting down. Show up whenever. My house my food.

Happy Thanksgiving

I believe at noon it's called lunch. And, yes, it's OK to have Thanksgiving at noon. We used to do it all the time. Not this year, however. This year, it's at 4:00 because.....reasons I won't go into.

And in this family, if you aren't there at the agreed-upon time, then everyone else starts eating and you'll just have to try and catch up. We don't wait. Too bad, so sad. Some may say that's an asshole thing to do. But I think the asshole thing to do is NOT be there at the time you were told to be there (emergencies and other unforeseen circumstances notwithstanding).

You can decide if it's ok for you.  I get to decide for me. I am not eating a big holiday dinner at noon.  

I am perfectly fine if that means you already ate by the time I got there.  The host being upset about that though, would be up to them, I don't care.  I didn't suddenly become their weird middle of the day feast puppet, because they invited me.

I'm sick...so no in-laws for me this year.

They're eating at 1, but that's so folks who have other family can go visit them as well.

Ima put a dent in some egg nog and Jack while the family is gone.

Some of us are capable of day drinking successfully. I used to do tailgates where we'd crack the first beer at sunrise, never had a problem lasting the day. Now, I wasn't closing the bars out at 2am, but would make it thru dinner time.

Look out for the party police!

OP, sounds like your in-laws are more concerned about what they want than the family. I get it, some of mine are the same way. I love hosting- I make way better food that people actually want to eat, I set the time you may arrive and the time it is over. Works out great - everyone gets out when we want them out, I don't have to eat shitty food made just the way one picky eater wants it with organic vegan bullshit, and I don't have to travel. Adopt this mindset and let the morons sort themselves out.

We tell people an hour before we actually start because a number of them are always late.

Every time we have people over, it's the same story, OP.  Thankfully, this year it's just immediate family.
