    Please help to know the meaning of the statement

    I read in a newspaper today. It has the following statement.

    "Who would have thought they would be there after so long"?

    Please help. Thanks

    Re: Please help to know the meaning of the statement

    Suppose there was a party and some people stayed for days after the party ended. You walk into the house and marvel at the group who are still there, so many days after the party ended.

    You would ask your friend, "Who would have thought that they would still be here after so long (of a time)?
