Its not, in itself a bad thing, or at all unacceptable. Sometimes parents who just about accept the idea of you being an independent adult whenyou move out of the family home and fend for yourself, forget that if you return, for however good a reason, and start to think of you again as their child, to be protected and get to bed early. Now, you can sit calmly and discuss this with them and explain that some of these presumably work-related functions do last until late, and that you'll try to get home as early as seems sensible, and don't want them to worry as you can take care of yourself. And maybe try not to let any of them last until 3 am ! After midnight, it's hardly work-related any more !
