5-year-old fined for not showing up to friend’s birthday party
Five-year-old Alex Nash has just received his first ever fine – and it’s surprising for more reasons than one.

Five-year-old Alex Nash has just received his first ever fine – and it’s surprising for more reasons than one.

The bill was from his friend’s parents after Nash failed to make it to his pal’s birthday party.

The Plymouth Herald reports that Alex was invited to his friend’s party at a ski and snowboarding centre and told his friend he could make the event, only to later realise upon checking with his mother that he in fact had other plans. So Alex ended up missing the snow-themed party.

About a week later, Alex came home with a envelope in his book bag containing an invoice from his friend’s mum. He’d been billed a sum of around $24 for a ‘child’s party no show fee.’

The Nash family’s first reaction was that the bill was a joke, but after the friend’s family threatened to take them to court, it became apparent that the invoice was very serious.

The parents also stipulated that Alex’s friend not play with him anymore. They’re currently in the middle of sorting out the situation via Facebook.
