A man got the surprise of his life when a close friend sent him an unexpected message.
He was invited to his friend's wedding, but opted not to attend, due to certain circumstances.
Unfortunately, he failed to notify the bride and she decided to get her own back.
Not long after the wedding day, she notified him that he would be billed an amount of R1 500 for failing to pitch.
According to the bride, his actions had cost implications and she was transferring the cost to him.
Radio station YFM shared the scenario via Twitter and the man in question was Twitter user @Mthaux.
The story sparked a polarising debate, as opinions differed greatly in terms of who was right or wrong.
Based on the response shared by @Mthaux, he was taken aback by the bride's warning and has refused to pay the fee.
"No, nor should she pay a cent unless it lasts over a decade. Jiki jiki u being extorted by folk who cant pay for catering. What the hell they eating for that amount. It's cheaper to go to Durban. Best way is to disclose her name, so we inform her to live beneath her means."
Khaya Sithole (@CoruscaKhaya) empathised with the bride:
"It's completely unfair to get someone to incur a cost, then you RSVP, only for them to disappear on the day. Venues charge per head so the bride/groom is actually out of pocket now. So the payment must be done."
Sambil Charles Mukwakungu (@SMukwakungu) shared some harsh words:
"It's a scam of people who wanted to go big beyond their means and now they realise that they are broke after the wedding and need to make some cash...I know such people...today, they're divorced."
