A 5-Year-Old Was Invoiced For Missing A Party
Late last year, 5-year-old Alex Nash confirmed he would attend a classmate's
birthday party at Plymouth Ski Slope. However, at the last moment, Alex's
parents realized that their son was double booked and had to spend time with his
grandparents that day. In the end, Alex did not attend the party.
For the next couple of weeks, Alex's parents tried to get in contact with the
classmate's family and apologize for not coming to the party. However, they
didn't have any luck getting in touch with them...until something weird
Earlier this week, Alex's father Derek received this: an invoice for a £15.95
(close to $24 USD) "no-show fee" from the classmate's family. The invoice was
given to Alex to deliver to his family from the classmate's mother.
Derek was not happy about the charge. The classmate's family claimed Alex could
have let them know he was not attending. By not attending, they say, Alex cost
them money. Now the Nash family is responsible for paying it back.
