Hopefully if this is a party, the guests are your friends and will understand possible tech issues, last minute kid issues, etc. It is a party, relax!

No. Be on time for wherever you are expected to be. Keeping people waiting is rude.

No. I don’t appreciate tardiness for any reason so I’m almost never tardy.

Everyone's time is important and we should respect it. Set an alarm and be on time!

Zoom has to be set up and arranged in a specific timeframe: who wants to stare at an empty screen?

If you are given a time to start, then that means it is time to start. If it is a VERY informal party, you should still be no more than 5 minutes late.

Never cool to keep people waiting. In fact being late is a feature of passive aggressiveness. If you anticipate issues that might delay you, then start earlier.

Early is on time. On time is late. Late is unforgivable.
