  • No, I would assume they are going to try to make it around 12.

  • if they say noon....I think noon.

    but then you know they say...

    to assume is to make an ass out of you and me.

  • Nope. I would be prepared for them to be there by ten, and if they weren't there by noon I'd call them and see if they knew when they were coming. But IMO when someone says "I'll probably be there around x-oclock" they generally don't call and tell you for sure.

    My sister and I do this to each other all the time and usually show up within an hour of when we said we'd be there, with no call for an update. But we're related. ;)

  • It would be nice for them to call and let you know so your not waiting around all day... but if not id expect them to get there around noon

  • I agree with the pp's i would think they would be there around noon but it may be a little later since they were not sure.

  • I would expect that they were not entirely sure, and that calling to find out would not resolve the issue. if they said "around" then around it is.
