A couple weeks ago, Jessica Baker from Golden Valley, Minnesota, was getting ready to go to a wedding with her husband when she got a call from her mother. "She called at the last minute and had something come up and said I can't make it," said Baker.
Her mother was supposed to watch their children. And since the invitation said no children, that meant no wedding. But then this week, she received a bill for the dinner they were supposed to have enjoyed.
"You've got to be kidding me," she said with a smile. "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.
She has no plans on paying it, but she did wonder what else she could have done.
"I guess I don't know what the right answer would have been. What the right thing to do would have been," she said.
