2. Jessica Baker and her husband RSVP'd to attend her friend's wedding. She was getting ready on the day of the event when her mother called to inform her that she could no longer watch the kids. Children were specifically not allowed at the reception, so Jessica and family stayed home. A few weeks later she received an itemized bill, including tax, for the meals she and her husband did not end up eating. Do you think this is fair?
