    No I would think it was my daughters responsibility - especially as the girls gave me the bundled sheets and watched me put them in the machine.

    I agree, if it does stuff up in the future, the parents are going to be blaming you. I would be (grudgingly bc 200 bucks is a lot) parting with the cash for a new one.

    eta: maybe you could just be honest with the parent, explain what happened and ask them what they want to do? they may say it's their DD's fault, or they may say give me only $100...

    Ok then, if thats your thinking process then tell the mother the story and hope she is fine with it.

    I'm sure you feel pretty awful about it, but they are still only 12.....not little kids but not mini adults either. I'd be zipping put to BiG W now and buying a new one.

    I'm sure the parents will not expect me to pay. What age do you think kids should be responsible for their own things? Even the girl is acknowledging it is her fault. I don't check the sheets of high school kids for iPods.

    I guess the only way to know would be to call and ask them what they expect should happen.

    Put it another way...even if you'd had shaken the sheets out, it would've hit the tiles!

    It was obviously an accident so just call the parents and ask them what they think.

    Look, you're being very defensive. You asked what we would do, so we are telling you. If you decide that you arent going to offer any money or a replacement then thats your prerogative. Keep the ipod in the rice until the mother comes to collect the girl and explain the story and hope for the best.

    It was the girls fault for not checking the sheet before giving it to you...it was your fault for not checking the sheets before washing...it was the mothers fault for allowing valuables to go to a sleepover...it was someones fault for buying a 12yr old an ipod.......the blame can easily get passed around and around.
