Shabbos meals that last too long piss me off

One of the ills affecting the Jewish community of the Bay Area is lengthy meals. I am sure this exists elsewhere, but never have seen it get so out of hand and I have felt that it’s high time for things to change. In general the hachnasas orchim is amazing here.

There aren’t too many single folks in most of the shuls and in general someone will invite you out. I like to prepare ahead so I don’t get stuck at one of these insanely long meals, but I have had the misfortune of sitting at a Shabbos lunch and being stunned when the host said “looks like it’s time for mincha”
