    So the other day at school, this idiot in my year decides it'll be so funny to steal my Xperia Z2 out my pocket without me noticing, while I was talking to some friends. He grabbed the phone and was slowly pulling it out, until I turned around quite suddenly when I thought someone called my name. He let go and the phone went flying and landed with a massive impact, front first. My tempered glass screen protector had a fairly big crack in it, and I removed it with no damage to the underlying display glass. I told him he had to pay up the $25 I payed for the glass and he refused and tried to blame me for turning around so suddenly. At that point I was ready to kill him and he angrily agreed to pay. 3 days later he has still not brought the money. I've told him if my display cracks I'm not paying for it as it wouldn't of if he hadn't been a jackass. He says it was a tiny crack in the tempered glass (it really wasn't) and that I should've left it on and not got a replacement. I tried to tell him glass weakens when cracked, but nope. I keep my phone caseless and refuse to buy a case for his idiocy. Who's in the right here? Me or him?

    Neither of you, you are both idiots and I'm ashamed of myself for responding.

    Make your dads fight it out in a neutral front yard or your choosing. Winner gets their way and will be deemed right and eternal master of the universe...in your own mind.

    That guy sounds like a complete ***, what kind of idiot tries to steal a phone, then doesn't pay for the consequences.

    I wouldn't demand money from him if your screen cracks. Though I would blame him for the phone dropping in the first place and he should at least assist in paying for a new screen protector.

    To be honest at that moment if someone I hate dropped my phone they probably would end up in the emergency room

    Seems like a great opportunity to approach to the debate team.

    Well he has to pay you back for the TG, but if you crack your screen in the meantime, it's definitely your own fault.

    Case closed.

    Him, obviously.

    Doesn't he have indemnity insurance?
    If he does, this is out of question (and you could agree on having the value set to 50$, 25 for each of you for the trouble).

    He has a phone too, no?
    Why don't you steal his and "accidentally" drop it?

    Your friend doesn't really seem very friendly. That kid definitely needs to get his act together and own up to his mistakes.

    But if your screen cracks, it's definitely your mistake.

    To be honest - you're not getting your money so BE SMART and get another screen protector. Life isn't fair, so better to protect your phone then feel entitled to you're money and the screen break in the meantime.
