Maybe you should tell him the truth and offer to buy a new drinking class for him. Telling the truth you'll feel relieved too.

Generally, people are more important than things. However it would be good for you to offer to replace it. Maybe you could find an identical one, or if not, find one that your room mate would like just as well as the one that got broken.

Hi Zills, Tell him that your friend dropped it and it broke. Then go out and buy one like it or similar and apologize. That should be the end of it. After all, I long can one stay mad over a glass? Things happen but next time have your friends use plastic disposable cups,,,,maybe even sippee cups.

I understand why he is upset about losing the glass if it was a glass that he inherited, got as present from someone he loves or something like that, but I still think that his behaviour is a little childish. It was an accident and your friend didn't do it on purpose. Maybe he is actually angry about something else. He could be angry about the fact that you used his things without his permission. If I were you I would say something like: "We borrowed your glass and I am sorry that we broke it. I will buy you a new one" Then you have done what you can do and the rest is up to him.

I understand that the glass was a special one but to be so upset over it is a bit childish. I do not understand why some attach to things in that way. Sure a bit of sadness is warranted but not enough to tear a friendship over. Offer to get a new one for him and see how that goes, if he gets even more upset well what can you do, it is not something you need to live with forever. Best of luck.

You need to replace it if you can. Here is a word of wisdom: Do not ever, under any circumstances, use things that do not belong to you. That would save so much grief in the long run. My housemates and I have boundaries, and we do not use each others things. Unless we ask to do so. Even so, I have not borrowed anything more than a flashlight from my housemates, and a screwdriver. They were right there while I used the item and promptly gave it back.

I think it's very silly and simple matter. Only for one glass your room mate should not do this. I think as your friend had broken so you should have buy one for your room mate before your room mate comes to know. But as now it's too late you should talk with your room mate should say sorry and ask him if he needs then you will buy for him one glass.

Unfortunately, I believe it was not the glass that was broken but the trust he had in you. When we leave our home sanctuary, we trust that those that remain will care for our personal belongings. You could have had a party and told your guest not to touch his things. Perhaps you can get away with it this time but in the future, try to be more aware of his possessions. I would hate to leave home and find my favorite mug broken upon my return. You might feel the same about other possessions. We should not trivialize something as important to us as the well being of our possessions in the hands of those we trust most.

It sounds like he might have been attached to the glass for whatever reason. No one asks for things that are unimportant to him/her unless they just want to be a pain in the butt. However, the point is you allowed someone else to use it without his express permission and it was broken. How would you feel if the roll was reversed? Tell the truth and apologize. Those are two things that can go very far. Then see if there is a way to replace the glass for him. Good Luck
