My best friend's mum wants me to pay $1200

Question Posted Saturday June 16 2012, 1:11 pm

So the other one of my best friends gave me this troll link. When you click that link, you'll be redirected to a page with this screaming ghost girl and a scary bgm. Obviously I got scared. Afterwards she told me to go troll my other friends and so I did since it sounded fun. Most of my other friends got scared but laughed it off but when I gave the link to my other best friend, HE TOTALLY FLIPPED OUT. Like, I was in Skype call with him so I heard him screaming and throwing something. At first I thought he fainted or something so I called him a few times. Then he told me he just asked his maid to help close the page because he was too scared. Now though, it seems like he actually THREW his headphones to the computer screen and it broke. He told his mum (obviously) and didn't exactly tell her the FULL story. His mum is making me pay $1200 and obviously I'm mad. I said I'd speak to his mum one on one but I won't be too polite about it though. What should I do? And am I really at fault and should pay $1200? I mean, it's not like I threw his headphones at the screen.

I disagree with Razhie

It was a joke, Funny? No.

You are not obligated in anyway to pay for his computer. This boy freaked out and threw something at his computer, You did in no way shape or form FORCE him to throw objects at his screen. It was an unfortunate reaction on his behalf. I would frankly take this as a lesson learned in a way that maybe it's best not to send cruel jokes to people over the internet.

Should you pay 1200? No, You are not obligated to do so. This is his property and his actions....If anything he broke his property then he should replace it.

It was a joke. Period. Maybe not a nice joke. But a joke. You should not have to pay for a computer screen that you did not break. He threw the head phones at the screen not you;..

It's like someone sending an email that they didnt like and breaking the screen not to see it.

He is at fault for breaking it. not you..

Tell your parents. that you did not break it. he did.

Talk to your parents and tell them they whole story.

What you did was cruel and unfunny. It was immature, mean-spirited and unkind.

You should apologize profusely for acting like a jerk - cause you did act like a total jerk - and never do something like this again.

Because you don't know when you are going to upset or hurt someone. You don't know what kind of fear or gross out will trigger in another person. So don't troll your friends with freaky or disgusting videos. You'll loose friends.

Should you pay the $1200? Frankly, if I were your parents, I'd force you to pay a portion of it to help you understand how very much you should not behave like this again, but legally, no, you are not at fault for him breaking his screen. You have no legal obligation to pay.

However, this really isn't going to be solved until you speak to your parents about this problem you are having with his mom. So get them involved. Speaking with his mother yourself is only likely to dig into a deeper hole. This is a problem for the parents to discuss.

Have your parents tell them to take a hike. You don't need a friend like him or his parents. He hurled his headphones and regardless of who sent him the link it's his action that is what broke his computer not you. You had no way of knowing he would do that.

The $1,400 bill is their problem not yours. They're trying to bully you. Your parents can handle this don't pay a f--- cent. Some people are just unbelievable opportunists.
