This morning, a question was posed to me, "When do you know that it's time to leave the party?" At first it seemed kind of silly, but as I thought about it, it became an interesting blog topic. Let me give you my opinion.

It's definitely time for me to leave the party when I see weapons, especially firearms. Tipsy folks and weapons are not a good mix. It's also the cue for me to leave when any kind of violence breaks out. I know that death is a given, but I don't want to die violently. Also, a good time for me can come to a screeching halt by folks arguing and fighting. That can ruin it for me.

It's time for me to get going when an influx of teens and young adults arrive. I recognize when it is simply not my crowd. I also don't want to be one of the last guests there, sitting around while the host is trying to clean up and go to bed. When the masses start trickling away, so do I.

What about you? How do you know when it's time for you to leave the party?

Your comments--priceless!!

    i'm not big on parties usually. now i loved going to the superbowl parties in l.a. and the yearly bbq, but in general i would rather spend time with just a few friends. worse is being at a party where i really don't know more than one or two folks.

    ok i know that's not the topic lol. i usually leave shortly after folks begin to leave. i always remember how i feel when folks stay too long, i don't want to be one of those folks.

    Also if the preponderance of folks are drunk i will make a quick exit, i do not like being around drunk folks they are just never as funny as they think they are!

  3. That;s the beauty of the Mrs. She tells me when it's time to go, because I'd be inclined to leave very quickly or stay very late ;-)

    I agree with you Jewel. When and if I do go out, I like to go to the Casino. They have a nice old school open bar club with the police around everywhere, no mess jumping off there haha! I don't like to frequent any establishment where the unruly hang out. Bartenders need to know when to cut a drunk person off and send them on their way (they do this at the casino and the police have been known to call a cab and send ya on your merry drunk way). It's also time to leave the club when everybody knows your name, hahahaa. It's not good to be so regular at anyone place that you look like a piece of furniture (same chair, same face, same drink, same outfit hahahahahaa)........

    As a teenager the time to go was when Gladys Knight and The Pips came on to sing "It's Time To Go Now" I can remember the words - It's time to go now, it's been really fun but as you can see it's getting late.....

    As an adult I don't need to wait for the last song I leave when the majority of the people are leaving - unless I have become bored... I also like the casino or hotel party scene... house parties are only for a few close relatives........ Wait a minute, I hear that old tune again "It's Time To Go Now - PEACE
