Youngsters positively don’t eat free at this wedding.
An nameless marriage ceremony visitor has shared an incident on Reddit’s Marriage ceremony Shaming discussion board, in search of recommendation on how to reply to the bride’s parents, who’re allegedly demanding the visitor reimburse them for a meal their 16-year-old son ate on the reception.
In line with the Reddit post, the visitor had beforehand acquired the marriage invitation and selected the common, “grownup” rooster from the meal choices, as did the son.
“There was an choice to pick out a child’s meal model of every dish, however I by no means thought-about ordering one for my son as a result of he’s too outdated for child’s meals. I despatched within the RSVP card with our meal choices and by no means heard something about it,” the submit learn.
As soon as on the reception, the submit defined, the waiter introduced the pair their meals, however ended up being one meal brief — a rooster meal — for the desk.
“The waiter had a small plate of rooster fingers and fries, however everybody on the desk informed him it should be a mistake as a result of we did not have any youngsters sitting with us. The waiters had been capable of put collectively an additional rooster plate for the one that did not get one, and it appeared all was properly,” the nameless poster wrote.
Nevertheless, it was not all properly, because the visitor quickly bought a cellphone name from the bride’s mother and father, who allegedly claimed the rooster fingers had been for the 16-year-old, and that the visitor has “precipitated the caterer to cost [the family] for an additional grownup rooster meal.”
“I informed them my son had requested for the grownup meal, however they stated he ought to have had the child’s meal as a result of he is below 18.

The bride stated she simply chuckled when the RSVP card got here again. And my sister bought her rooster strips and fries.”
