Give her the money you owe her. Then your debt is paid up. And now, she is in debt to you for the device she ruined. So, she needs to make it up to you. If she refuses to pay, you know she's not a friend.

So, let me make sure I've got this right. She's letting you stay at her house, she leant you $100, she wanted to be even nicer than she was being already by washing your ****, and you're upset that she accidentally ruined some headphones? If that's true, wow...

I spend about $150 of food and drinks at her place.

Talk to her... Tell her what happened and what she thinks about making a deal with you... You pay 50 bucks and you're both even.
If she does not like the deal, then you say you won't pay her the 100 bucks, nor the 50 bucks.
But... If her friendship is important to you, then shut up and give her all the money and then you see if you paid her to end the friendship or to keep it strong. Either way, 100 bucks won't kill you and this is the time when we get to know our real friends.

Cut her some slack, give her the $100 and treat it like you lost them yourself. It's annoying to lose something expensive, but since it's your friend, just accept it as a mistake. It's called friendship, and mistakes are allowed. She didn't crash your car or steal your wallet :)

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?

Probably pretty easy considering that Apple iPhone/iPod earbuds cost 80 bucks (the ones with inline remote/mic), and I'd imagine BOSE would be way better.
A lot of earphones/earbuds actually have separate tweeter, midrange and bass speakers in them too, making them quite expensive.

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.


maybe now on top of the $100 you borrowed...she'll now charge you a few days rent.... :laugh:

I don't let anyone else do my laundry, not after someone used detergent I was madly allergic to.

True. She was nice to him. I changed my mind.

@op. : pay her what you own and show her that she destroyed 100 bucks worth of earphones. Laugh of the situation and you're done. If she thinks she has to give you back any money, good for you. Or you guys can spend it together another day.

This... My cousin accidentally killed my Macbook Pro - she knocked a drink over, just manned up and bought a new one.

Crap happens...

Her fault, you always empty the pockets before you wash pants.

I think normal people usually empty their pockets before taking their pants off in the first place... Unless we're talking about a little kid's pants.
