Late last year, 5-year old Alex Nash affirmed he’d attend a classmate”s birthday party at Plymouth Ski Slope. Yet, at the last minute, Alex”s parents recognized that their son was double booked and had to spend time with his grandparents that day. Finally, Alex didn’t attend the bash.
For the next number of weeks, Alex”s parents attempted to get in contact with the classmate”s family and apologize for not coming to the celebration. Nevertheless, they didn”t have any chance getting in contact with them…until something strange happened.
Before this week, Alex”s dad Derek received this: an invoice for a 15.95 (close to USD) “no-show fee” from the classmate”s family. The invoice was given to Alex to deliver to his family from the classmate”s mom.
Derek wasn’t happy about the charge. The classmate”s family maintained Alex could have let them know he wasn’t attending. By not attending, they say, Alex cost them cash. Now the Nash family is in charge of paying it back.
To add insult to injury, the invoice even threatens to take the Nash family to small claims court if the cash isn’t paid.
Derek says that while he sympathizes with the parents of the classmate, he does not have any intent of paying the invoice. I am able to realize that shes worried about losing money,” said Derek. “The cash isnt the problem, its the way she went about attempting to get the cash from me.

There’s been no opinion yet about the invoice from the family of the birthday boy. Something tells me they won”t be applying that legal action claim. No court on earth would even think of hearing it.
