catskillsinjune :  no – her reaction was to try and find a far more reasonable solution that replacing an ENTIRE couch because of a 2 inch mark.  Professional cleaning/repair or replacing just that cushion are reasonable and the friend shot them down. The turn is around comment was more of an exasperation after the rest of the options were rejected. And not for nothing….the friend gave the toddler a marker knowing she had a white couch. If you’re that crazy about your stuff don’t invite kids over let alone give them a marker….

aybeecee :  You are definitely a selfish opportunist for cashing that hypothetical check. Someone generously offered to replace the chair they ruined so you swindle them out of extra cash. Nicely done. That’s sarcasm.

glitterati :  I think that’s the right call bee. Trying to cash in on your friednship with people who are generous or making money “off” your friends is pretty horrible. You’re doing the right thing.
