After reading a story about a Lawyer that was publically vilified for asking a Secretary to pay the £4 cleaning bill for his trousers she spilt ketchup on .... ..... I got to thinking about the fact that tbh, its damn rude to damage, dirty or spoil someones property and not offer to pay for it. He may make alot of money, it may be a trivial amount of money and she may have just had a berievement .... but surely if he asked politely, its not his fault that the secretary was having a hard time in her private life. I would have offered to pay there and then as the incident occured without question. Whats your thoughts ?
