This Woman Bailed On A Wedding — & Was Billed $75 For It

A Minnesota woman who bailed on a family member's wedding after her babysitting arrangements fell through received a bill for $75.90 in the mail this week. Jessica Baker, a mother of two, told a local TV station that she and her husband had no choice but to skip out on the event after Baker's mother canceled plans to watch the couple's kids at the last minute (the invitation had specified that children were not welcome). Several weeks later, she was surprised to receive an itemized statement for the cost of two dinners (herb-crusted walleye, to be exact), plus tax and a service charge, sent by the world's most passive-aggressive bride and groom.

At the bottom of the page was the following explanation: "This cost reflects the amount paid by bride and groom for meals that were RSVPd for; reimbursement and explanation for no show, card, call, or text would be appreciated."

Granted, couples have every right to be annoyed when people who RSVPd "yes" skip out on their nuptials without warning, but Baker seems to have had a legitimate reason — and even if she hadn't, sending a bill is, um, not classy.

Baker told the reporter that she had already discarded the bill, and has no plans to pay it. What would you do if someone skipped your wedding — or if you got a bill for skipping someone else's? Tell us in the comments.
