Okay so last Wednesday this little boy fell off his bike in front of my house. I saw the whole thing and could see that his arm looked broken. I had my dd move his bike out of the street and into the yard while I carried him home. His parents asked me to just put the bike in my backyard until they got back to get it. Well on Sunday I notice that the bike is no longer in the backyard and neither is my daughters bike. So apparently they were stolen. Now normally I lock the gate to the backyard...but they said they were going to come by and get the bike and since we weren't going to be home I unlocked it. I told them it was unlocked and asked them to put the lock back on when they left.
Now they want to me pay to replace their kids bike. Now had they come and got the bike when they said they were going to in the first place...which was last week...my gate would have been locked. Then had they come the morning they texted before I had to leave...my gate would have been locked. Now I am not blaming them. But I don't feel I should replace their kids bike. I already have to replace my dd's bike.
