So I need some advice or opinions from you guys and girls. I asked a guy I worked with to grab me a 24 pack on his way to where I am located, and he was going to buy the beer out of his own pocket and then get paid back by me when he gives me the beer. after he bought the beer and left the store he put it down to rearrange what he was holding. when he picked it back up outside the box fell apart and the supposedly all the beer exploded. now he wants 45 dollers but i dont want to pay him cuz it seems like bullshit that that happened and i didnt get any beer out of it.
do i pay him half or just full out refuse?
