It’s no joke gentlemen!
Let’s do the short story. Alex is 5 years old, when his dad was checking his backpack, he found a $ 24 bill (£ 15.95) for not attending a birthday party.
As uncanny as it sounds, Julie (the birthday mother, Charlie) sent Tania and Derek (the parents of the child who was NOT at the party) a bill for the cost of not having arrived. Tania and Derek confirmed that Alex would go and that is why Julie was very personal, but the crux does not stop there …
Julie sent and handed the invoice to the teacher who in turn put it in Alex’s backpack – they already fucked the teacher, the invoice was sent in the name of Alex’s parents and the sender is “Ski Slope “, Who in turn say that they never issued the bill because to begin with they do not know the attendees of the holidays.
The thing gets hairy, when Derek gets like beast and appears in the house of Julie to complain.
Then I ask, who is wrong?
I agree that when you have a party, ideally, you should know how many guests you have. Répondez s’il vous plaît (RSVP) Please respond as well or more cordially and directly the question? Alex’s parents confirmed their attendance. The mother of the party talked with them a few days before and they confirmed it again.
I also agree that if the party is away from home, you need to confirm the total number of guests to avoid unnecessary expenses and keep in mind that parties outside the house come out very affectionate.
But I also know that anything can happen and sometimes even if you confirm, you can not follow the plans to the letter. I also know that some parents are leaving the plane to my not ok! 😉
It makes me very bad taste to bill someone for not attending, I think if you both hurt that $ 24 you should not have a party in a place like “Ski Slope”. And if I understand that it is cagante that they leave you waiting but really it is not worth starting a commotion and above putting to the school.
On the other hand, and to be a devil’s advocate, if I want to say that it seems fatal to me that Derek has appeared at the birthday party to make such a bochinch. The house is sacred and no one has the right to disturb your peace there.
Tania (mother of the invoice) looked for Julie after Derek got in the way, first very cute tells him that there is no need to argue, but then he changes the tone and continues sending merfolk messages on the same subject … mmmhhhh, harassment ? I think so.
The discussion of the fine ladies, obviously ends badly. And also leave very badly to the teacher (for being a messenger) and “Ski Slope” already made statements to dismiss the issue. And in the end, the most harmed are Alex and Charlie that although their friendship goes beyond the $ 24, they are already more fucked up than anyone. The other mothers of the other children in the class will now tread carefully around this pair.
What do we learn from this billing story?
“Sometimes the messenger pigeon is very badly stopped.
“Do not commit to doing something you can not do.
-Don’t spend money you do not have.
“You will not fuck your neighbor in his house.
-When you invite (or dis), do it because you are born. Not for the gift or to look good.
In case you wonder why Alex did not come to the party, it’s because he was walking around with his grandparents, private pachanga 🙂
For my part, I tell you that a couple of years ago the Boy and I were invited to a very pompous nuptials in a Caribbean resort and if for some reason you did not stay at the resort you had to PAY FOR THE WEDDING. Yes sir, as you read it … .. that is already fabric for another post o_O
And you who think of the birthday with billing?
