Was at my friends place and she gave me $100 and I said that I would pay it back. Well, she took my jeans and wash them with out telling me. I was wearing shorts at the time. Well I had my wallet and Bose headphone in the pocket and everything in the wallet is all mess up and Bose headphone does not work anymore. The Bose cost $99 which I got a few months ago. She said that it's my fault for keeping my stuff in my pant and I should have known to take them out before she wash them even though I didn't know she was going to wash my jeans. Only shirts.

Should I pay her $100 that I owe her or because she wash my jeans without checking the pockets that we were even.

Normally, when washing pants, you empty the pockets first. If she was trying to be nice, she's bad at it. You no longer owe her any money.

Does she normally do your laundry, but you just weren't expecting it this time?

No, I was staying there for a few days. Never got my cloths wash but would have think if she was going to wash jeans that you look at the pockets. More so if you don't live there.

If she destroyed something of value to you, then she owes you compensation, no matter what the intent.

If she was doing it as a favor and she is your friend.. I would just let it go.. $100 isn't worth loosing a friend..

Fact is, you still owe her $100, and she owes you a replacement headphones. 2 Separate claims, you guys need to work something out mutually.

Question, how do you fit $100 headphones into the pockets of Jeans, and secondly, how does someone not notice them in the pockets, they have to be rather large, no?

if the situation is EXCATLY as describing, give her $50 and call it even. But if she actually asked you if you wanted your clothes washed and you said yes, then its all on you, pay her the $100.

If you need some advice on replacement headphones, give me a PM. I'm sorry to tell you, but those Bose cans are better off dead, anyway.

No it was her fault. Being nice doesn't remove responsibility. Don't pay her anything.

If I were in your situation, it would all come down to how reasonable my friend is willing to be. I try not to be a selfish person, and if they're reasonable about it, I would probably pay back the full $100 and forget the whole situation. But if not, then I would insist on some sort of compromise, where I only pay back part of what I owed. And if she's a downright bitch, well...

Regardless of what you choose to do, learn this lesson: Always insist on doing your own laundry.
