An online debate has begun to stir after newlyweds in Chicago posted a $240 bill for wedding guests that didn't show up.
According to the Chicago couple, Dedra and Doug Simmons, your wedding guests owe you if they don't show up to your wedding. The invoice, titled, "No Call, No Show Guest" explains in part, "Because you didn't call or give us proper notice that you wouldn't be in attendance, this amount is what you owe us for paying for your seat(s) in advance." In the Aug. 23 Facebook post, shared by more than 6,000 people, Doug Simmons writes, “Don’t be offended when I send this invoice to you. It’s gonna look something like this. I’ll be sending it via email and certified mail…just in case you ain’t get the email #PettyPost.”
The post has now gone viral with people debating whether or not 'no-show guests' should pay for their plate. According to Simmons, the guests that didn't show did so without a call or a text. The couple admits that their post is more about the lack of communication than the money itself, however it has lead to quite the debate in the comments!
