Parents billed $24 for a ‘no-show fee’ after 5-year-old son misses birthday party.

LONDON — It was not what Derek Nash expected to find in his 5-year-old’s school bag: A bill demanding a “no-show fee” for another child’s birthday party. It might sound ludicrous, but Derek Nash and Tanya Walsh discovered an envelope with the invoice in their son Alex’s bag last week after he skipped the party at the Plymouth Ski Slope and Snowboard Centre. Alex’s mother Tanya explained further. “Julie Lawrence and I weren’t friends, we didn’t talk to each other at school, but I felt bad about Alex not going to the party,” she said. “I searched for the party invite afterwards, and I’m not sure we even had one.

It’s very condescending.” “It is inconceivable that a five-year-old would be seen by a court as capable of creating legal relations and entering into a contract with a ‘no show’ charge,” he wrote.
