    Default Impartial Advice needed

    A while ago I leant my friends little brother a pair of car speakers. Fairly decent ones. (Eminence 327)

    We both understood it was a temporary loan, and he should get some of his own, and return mine to me. I even included an enclosure.

    Anyway, I asked for them back recently, and he tells me they were stolen out of his car when it was broken into (this is a fact). He now says it is not his problem. This has ever so slightly annoyed me, as I believe in giving back what is loaned, no-matter what has happened to it.


    The problem is, i'm having an attack of conscience. He is not very well off and can afford the loss far less than me, but I don't want him to just think he can walk all over me, and maybe others down the road who may not be a calm as me. (if you know what I mean)


    I also don't want to have any atmosphere. Anyone offer advice?

    it depends how he approached things. If they were stolen then he should have apologised to you and at least offered to replace them. Saying its not his problem sounds like hes the type of person who doesnt really care about property and kinda makes me think he didnt take care of them as well as he should have. Ie, was he careful where he parked etc

    Ditto Andy.

    Should of made the offer, then you could of said "Little Bro don't worry about it".

    For you to make that mind up though.

    Saying that I bought the Xbox when it first came out, lent it to my then 11 year old brother. Finally got it back last week!!!

    Not a nice situation mate

    He is being a little bit arrogant with his responce to you which would prob put my back up too. With him not being too well off, give him a wee talking too basically saying he is taking the p1ss with his responce to your good will, and seeing as they were knocked give him the benefit of the doubt...this would keep your conscience clear

    Or kick his @ss..

    Was the theft recorded by police, or did he take the attitude of "ah well, they weren't mine anyway, so no loss to me!!"?

    To be honest the thing that peeved me was he made no effort to tell me they had been stolen. He only mentioned it when i asked for them back. I was not demanding them, just asking as i wanted them. Don't think he reported them stolen and insurance not claimed on. They were well hidden in the boot.

    I voiced my displeasure when the conversation got going, had quite a go at him. Haven't seen him since. but want to avoid any ill-feeling when I do.


    Thanks for you answers

    what does your friend say about this ???? at the end of the day you still want a replacement for the said speakers .... just because he hasn't claimed on the insurance is not your fault , its was his decision so he should still get you another pair, or at least some of the money towards a new pair !!!

    Just about hits the nail on the head as far as I'm concerned. You say you've already had a go at him, is this enough in your mind. If not then maybe a chat with your friend?
