Although Chris was admittedly baffled to not receive an invitation to his close friend’s wedding, he never made the effort to ask about it considering how awkward it would be if not inviting him was intentional. The wedding went on without Chris in attendance on Monkey Island in Bray, Berkshire, and in the following years, the friends continued to grow apart.
“There was one occasion when we met up and he told me that he never received an invite—and I told him, of course, I did invite him but I don’t think either of us really believed the other’s story,” Sidebotham said. It wasn’t until four years later that Chris received the lost invitation in the mail and was quick to send Donna a picture, writing, “Oh my god you did send an invite to me!”
The two ex-pals have no idea how the mishap happened and the courier, Royal Mail, is working to investigate the matter, but now that there is someone to blame, the two are ready to rekindle their friendship. Mail couriers are no strangers to losing the occasional letter, but unintentionally destroying a five-year friendship is a new one.
