Money Matters - Chipped Store Item
Submitted by e strauss  Answered by Rav Yehonoson Hool
Question:
Answer: I'm afraid so. If you already bought it then it's obviously not their problem. Even if you didn't yet buy it, you are responsible for any damage that you did, even accidentally. The fact that they did not give good service doesn't absolve you of responsibility. Next time, leave it on the counter and insist that they bring the wrapping materials.
One point though. If you haven't yet bought it, you don't actually have to buy it, just to pay for the damage done, i.e. the difference between the price before it was chipped and the price it's worth now. (But with a delicate vase, that may well be practically the full cost!)
