This past Saturday, Ethan was at the house of his best friend, Bruce, having dinner. Bruce and a close friend of Bryce's, Seth, were spending the night, so the four of them could play Magic: the Gathering. Bryce and Seth had gone to Seth's house to collect some clothes and cards to play the game.

You weren't expecting Ethan to be home, because you knew he and Bruce were coming after they'd eaten dinner. However, Bryce had only asked permission to go to Seth's house to get the stuff, and nothing was said about staying.
Two of Ethan and Bryce's friends come by to see what they're up to, and you realize that it's closer to 6:45 than 6:30. As you're explaining that they aren't around, all four boys come walking up. It turns out that Seth and Bryce had decided to go by Bruce's house to see what the other two boys were up to, and they'd walked home together.
For the record, you have permission to spank all six boys and have used it. Ethan has been spanked fairly recently, but Bryce has managed to go a bit more than three months without one - since before he turned 14. While Seth's parents don't have quite the strict time requirements you do, they are sticklers for being where one is supposed to be, and Seth only had permission to be at your house.
So, is anyone in trouble, and do the unexpected guests have any effect on your decision?
