It was the first ‘party’ her daughter would have in five years, and she wanted to do something “fun and unusual”.

She saved for months and put down a deposit for the activity, which required a minimum of ten participants.

Then, a day before the big event, the RSVPs started to change.

"Tonight three people [have said] they are not coming," she wrote on a mumsnet post.

"Two have yet to say yes or no. Out of 12 (including daughter). Minimum for activity is 10.

A mum has asked parents whether they think she is being unreasonable to send a stern note to families of kids who cancelled on her daughter ’ s birthday party . The Mumsnet user also said she had considered sending an invoice to cover the expenses she forked out ahead of the 16th party .

A mum has taken to Mumsnet again to post about a profound idea to invoice those who didn' t turn up to her daughters party . The mum revealed that she had saved up and planned an amazing sixteen birthday bash for her daughter and that some friends cancelled at the last minute.

"Just when did people become so rude and unfeeling never mind unconscious of wasting money?"

Now the mother has decided to do something drastic: She wants to send an invoice to those who were no-shows to the event.

"Am I being unreasonable...to send a terse note to these families? And maybe an invoice?"

While some agreed that the teens were being inconsiderate, many added that at 16, it may be up to the friend group to talk among themselves.

"I can understand how tempting it is to say something, but at 16 years old, I think you have to let them sort it out themselves," a fellow mum wrote.

"Does your daughter want you to contact the parents? If she is okay with it, I think I might contact them," another wrote.

"They might not realise that you paid for it and need ten participants and when their daughters are saying they don't want to go now they are just seeing an opportunity not to drive, not thinking through what it will mean to you and your daughter."

The broadcaster came under fire for the comments he made on his radio show, High Noon, on Friday.In a statement issued today, Mr Hook said he wanted to "apologise unreservedly for comments" he made about rape."It was unacceptable to suggest in any way that blame could be attributed to victims of rape. I apologise for the comments which caused hurt and offence, and for this I am truly sorry.

She wrote: “My Daughter is 16. Her party is tomorrow….first one for 5 years. I have saved forever to do a fun and unusual activity for her ‘friendship group’. The mum wanted to know if she would be unreasonable to invoice the no- shows .

kids . Mum who invoiced her friend 7 for her daughter ’ s marked shoes reduced to tears on TV. Piers Morgan reduces mother to tears after she sent an invoice to another mum when her three-year-old daughter ’ s expensive leather shoes were damaged on a playdate with her friend.

The original poster added that her daughter was "very, very upset" at the news some of her friends had dropped out so close to the event.

"My deepest fear is that the ones who have declined tonight are the polite ones and that others simply won't show," she added.

"Teenagers can be so unkind to each other," one user commented.

"I cringe when I think of some of the things my friends and I did as teens. We were so careless of other people's feelings."

Others offered up what could just be the best birthday present of all: some solid life advice.

"Humour heals and personal pain often makes for the best stories later in life!" one woman wrote.


Labour TD Alan Kelly left election leaflets at a party think in... printed entirely in Latin .
Mr Kelly was one of the most controversial ministers in the last government , with his brash no-nonsense style rubbing many ministerial colleagues up the wrong way, including some in his own party.However, it was this same forthright manner that won him fans among others and he was one of only seven TDs returned to the Dáil last year.This was a disastrous fall from grace for the government party which had returned 37 TDs at the 2011 election.Party leader Joan Burton had to fall on her sword and the cocksure Kelly decided to throw his hat in the ring to be the new leader.
