This Woman Had To Miss A Wedding, What She Got From The Couple Is Pure Lunacy
I’ve been to plenty of weddings over the years and me and my wife have only had to cancel out on going to one just one time. It was a wedding for one of her coworkers and we had already sent in the RSVP card a good long time in advance.
About two days before the wedding, one of the kids got sick enough to where we had to stay home. We sent the little gift card with a note saying how sorry we were that we could not attend. When the bride got back from her honeymoon the first thing she did was ask my wife if our child was alright. That’s how normal people act folks…
Jessica Baker and her husband were excited for a rare night out. In August 2015, the Minnesota couple planned on attending an adults-only wedding, and Jessica’s mother was going to watch their kids.
But just before the event, Jessica’s mom called and said her niece contracted hand-foot-and-mouth disease. Her mom, who had been exposed to the disease, didn’t want to pass it onto her kids so she canceled her babysitting last minute. With no one to watch her children for the night, Jessica and her husband decided not to attend the wedding. A few weeks later, the Bakers received a bill in the mail for $75.90, complete with a service and tax charge. The “invoice” was sent to them by the couple’s wedding they had to miss.
“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 letter read.
Jessica was shocked and confused. She posted the bill to Facebook, hoping her friends would have some advice. Instead, the bill went viral and reached Facebook users from all over the country.
What do you think about the bill… justified, or just plain tacky?
