    Can you get them new anymore? I think it's a simple matter of you-break-it-you-bought-it. Demand that he replace the machine.

    Ive always been bought up only to lend things to people if you can afford to replace them, i wouldnt dream of charging a friend to replace anything broken by accident

    We'll he said that I should get my house insurance to pay, I told him that I'll notify my foot, ready for a trip up his ***.

    Told him that if he wants to do it via insurance it can be his, and that I'm not waiting around for weeks too be back to normal.

    Get him to cough up, you were good enough to lend him it now he's gone any broken it he needs to replace it with one just as good if not better.
    If I broke a mates phone/pda etc I'd buy them a new one and make sure it was the next model up for the inconveinience I caused.

    yes yes, I am great me. :D

    How on earth did he do that to it?

    Oh and I'd tell him to replace it at his own cost.

    He left it in a corner of the room in a cheap plastic bag, his mum put a load of encyclopedias on top of it :eek: :confused: :(

    If he has half a brain, he should realise (without you telling him, even) that he should replace it to original condition through whatever way he can (whether repaired or bought again, etc) at his own cost as soon as possible to minimise your inconvenience.

    He quite clearly did not take good care of the phone, so it's only right that he should cough up the costs to make good the damage. If I did that to someone else's belongings, and there was no particular circumstances (which there isn't, in this case) then I wouldn't think twice before starting to look for getting it repaired or replaced with my own money.

    In that case its not a accident really thats just not taking care of it, surely his mum knows it was a expensive piece of kit. Her insurance would pay up straight away for such a small amount. Tell your mate to just pay the excess to his mum?

    Do you know this for certain?



    The guy just called and ask how much did I want, I told him £100 so he said £125 would be with me by tomorrow.

    Oh ok, fair play, he's not being an ass about it and promptly paying up. CPW usually charge a lot i thought.
