Scenario from Real Life

Your 5 year old child is invited to a birthday party.

You ask your child if he wants to go and he says yes.

You see the parent of the child who invited you and you tell her that your child is attending the party and looking forward to ti.

When the day arrives, you realize that you'd made plans for your children to spend the day with their grandmother.

Your child doesn't attend the party.

You didn't have contact information to let the parent know your child wasn't coming.

Your child comes home from school one day with a "No-Show" invoice for about $24.

Would you pay it?
