A mom who asked parents to pay $82 for their children to attend her son’s party has been slammed online.
Taking to Mumsnet, user FurCoatNoSnickers revealed that her teen had been invited to a Go Karting party for a 14-year-old friend, but she was reluctant to send him following the mom’s demands.

“Ds (Darling Son) is at a newish school — he was so happy to have been invited to a karting birthday party — turns out the whole class were invited. Details were the date, the activity-transport provided (it’s an 80-mile round trip) and a request of Amazon vouchers for present,” the woman explained.
“In the last few weeks since [school let out] I’ve been updated with further texts from the mother of birthday boy asking for deposits for the karting ($23) and the remainder on the day ($36) THEN that was followed up by a request for ($23) for the transport hmm.
“This morning she (in my opinion) has the gall to request we pack a generous picnic with ice packs and pack extra so the birthday boy doesn’t have to bring anything.”

She explained that she was in a dilemma as she worried this was a good opportunity for her son to make friends in his new school.
Continuing, she wrote: “I think this is the final straw and I’ll instead take ds and a friend karting myself at this rate.
“DH (Darling Husband) says I should like it or lump it and if everyone else seems to be going then it would be a shame for ds to miss out.”
But fellow Mumsnet users were totally behind her decision, agreeing that they would not let their children attend.

One wrote: “She essentially wants everyone else to pay for her son’s birthday. No way would my DC (Darling Child) be going.”
Agreeing, another added: “That is absolutely insane. I would definitely decline. Surely if you are throwing the party, you pay for everyone? She sounds cheap.”
A third commented: “Blimey no way I’m sorry if your teen misses out but that’s really expensive and downright rude of the other mum.”
Others even accused the mum of trying to make a profit from her son’s birthday.
“Wow!! I agree sounds like she may be making a profit I wonder is she has form for doing this type of thing?” commented one.

A second said: “She must be planning on a massive profit. No way would go karting and transport for 30 teens cost over £2k.”
