Kid Invoiced £15.95 for Failure to Attend Birthday Party

By Gary Cutlack on at

The parents of five-year-old boy Alex Nash have been invoiced for the sum of £15.95, after the child failed to show for a birthday party he'd been invited to.

Apparently the child in question is so damn popular he was double booked on the day in question, with the party clashing with a scheduled appointment to see the grandparents. Grammie and Granpoo won the popularity battle and the party was spiked -- leading the angry organiser to issue the invoice for wasted party goods.

The boy's dad told the BBC: "I can understand that she's upset about losing money. The money isn't the issue, it's the way she went about trying to get the money from me. She didn't treat me like a human being, she treated me like a child and that I should do what she says."

The angry party organiser mum replied in a short statement: "All details were on the party invite. They had every detail needed to contact me." [BBC]
