Dry ski slope for 5 year olds crikey.
I know that I could ski when I was 5 but we lived in Norway and it was kind of expected. I reckon if they are wealthy enough to book a dry ski slope for a bunch of 5 year olds, they can probably afford the odd no show.
I too am curious as the the previous 1431 invoices. Maybe they make a habit of having lots of parties and billing the no-shows.
Both are at fault. One's bad, the other's worse. Nothing to be proud of either side.
The parents of the kid who didn't go could surely have taken the time to tell the other family their child wouldn't be going. THat is just common decency (and as a parent I am aware that this bit of courtesy is not often extended.)
As for the other lot's invoicing for the no-show - just whacko.
What a pair of dorks. They deserve each other. Its poor manners to accept an invitation and not turn without notifiying the host. An RSVP has a distinct purpose. And then this crap about double booked with grandparents and then the fib about not having the contact details when its on the invite. I would cough up the small amount to avoid the publicity and now the media.
ps. The grandparents probably postponed the monthly meeting with the Queen to keep the meet with the grandson.
As usual you missed the point by a mile. Nothing to do with winning in court. Have a go at trying to figure out what the actual intention is. Here is the clue - the payback is already in the pocket for the cost of the outlay and the angst.
