5-Year-Old Boy Sent Invoice for Skipping Friend’s Birthday Party.

A five-year-old boy in England has been billed for skipping out on a birthday party — and his parents have been threatened with court action if they don’t pay up. The 5-year-old schoolboy from Torpoint in Cornwall, England, was invited to a friend’s celebration on Dec. 20 at the Ski Slope and Snowboard Centre in Devon.

Alex Nash recently came home with a £15.95 invoice ($24) in his school bag for not attending a party that took place at a ski park shortly before Christmas. Alex’s parents, Derek Nash and Tanya Walsh, told him he could either choose to attend the party or continue with the family’s visit to his grandparents’ home. That’s when the trouble started – Nash told the Plymouth Herald that they had no way of contacting the birthday boy’s mother, Jennifer Lawrence, to tell her that Alex would not be attending the party. Then, on Jan. 15, after classes resumed, Alex returned home from school with an invoice for a £15.95 ($24.13) “Child’s Party No-Show Fee” from Lawrence.

Lawrence told the BBC that she had provided her phone number on the party invites she had sent home. “They had every detail needed to contact me,” she said.
