AWM| You’re probably wondering what kind of a mother would do this for something that was probably an accident? Many kids go on playdates and as every parent knows, things get dirty and their clothes can get messed up. Kids are not always very concerned with that sort of thing, as you know.

If a parent raised their boy or girl right, the child will know to say please and thank you and hopefully clean up after their mess. But if a visiting child caused a little damage by accident, would you send them home from their playdate with an invoice? Probably not.

But that’s exactly what one vengeful mother did when her daughter’s shoes got ruined. Learn what happened below!

Because her 3-year-old daughter’s playmate left pen marks on an expensive pair of her daughter’s shoes, mom Sarah Louise Bryan invoice the fellow parent upwards of $400 for the expensive footwear.

She blamed the other mother for not supervising the children. After realizing that her daughter’s fancy shoes were ruined, Sarah sent the following text to her playdate’s mother…

“So Isabella has just come home from her playdate with your child and I am disgusted to see her new Italian leather shoes are all scuffed and have a Sharpie Mark on them.

“Below is the bill for these replacing because they can not be fixed these are fine Italian leather! As a designer I do not want my child to look anything less than pristine.

“Bill for a replacement pair of Italian fur booties [$400] to be paid by 01/02/2017 before I take this higher. Thank you, Sarah”

How would you respond to this kind of threat? Would you pay up or would you fight back?

This incident did not end so nicely. Because it escalated, the controversy was featured on a segment of “Good Morning Britain.”  Sarah was overjoyed to share her side of the story on television. But she got a tongue lashing from the television commentator Piers Morgan that she never expected…

Piers quickly stated his opinion – that he thought Sarah was being a bad mother. The commentator said what you’re probably thinking:

“There will not be a mother or father watching this who is not looking at you thinking, ‘What on earth are you doing buying a 3-year-old 60 pairs of shoes, some of them worth $325?’” he said.

Not only did this mother buy her daughter unnecessary expensive attire for an average playdate, she is expecting other people to pay for them if they are damaged.

He added: “They will also be thinking: ‘Sending a bill to a friend who has just had them around for a playdate. Do you understand how preposterous you look?”

His attack reduced the angry mother to tears. She started blaming her parents for all the pain she has suffered. She tries to shift the conversation and talks about cyber bullying although she was the one who was bullying the other mother in the first place.

What do you think about this mother sending another mom an invoice for a pair of girl’s shoes?

    Although I am glad that this mother has enough money to pay for her daughter’s shoes, I am disheartened to see her mother put so much importance on a pair of shoes to demand the other mother pay for scuff marks and such. I went to school with cardboard in the bottom in of my hand-me-down shoes to cover the holes – so my socks wouldn’t get ruined. I was thankful for that. Sorry a scuff mark ruined your day..
