Bride and groom send whining couple bill for missing wedding meal
Jessica Baker from Golden Valley, Minnesota, and her husband were getting ready to attend a wedding. The phone rang. It was Jessica’s mother. “She called at the last minute and had something come up and said I can’t make it,” said Baker.
Mum was supposed to babysit their children. The invitation said no children. The Bakers did not contact a babysitter or a neighbour. They bailed. They stayed at home. Neither of them. Both of them had to say and watch the kids. Both of them.
Having bailed at the last minute, the bride and groom thought it right the Bakers paid for they meal they ordered and never ate. “You’ve got to be kidding me,” said Baker. “It listed, we would have had two herb crusted walleye and there was also a service and tax charge.” The total came to $75.90.
“This cost reflects the amount paid by the bride and groom for meals that were RSVP’d for, reimbursement and explanation for no show, card, call or text would be appreciated,” the note read.
Jessica refuses to pay up. “I guess I don’t know what the right answer would have been. What the right thing to do would have been.”
Jessica supposes that question is rhetorical. The answer it that one of you should have gone to the do. It did not take both of you to mind the kids. You bailed and blamed your mum. Then you called the media.
