At least you did the right thing, most people would have walked away and pretended that they had no clue what happened... FYL for you having to pay for something that may or may not have been your fault
I remember that during drama class, we had to stand on the tables and "express ourselves"... Yeah that didnt end well, someone broke a table exactly by half and he was told to pay for the table. We all complained about it, and then the teacher had to pay the 75 euros. Guess which class got the lowest marks..
That's the politics of college for you! I'm sorry, OP, you should fight that. I know my college has ways to fight unjust fines. I'm sure yours does too.
That ain't right. You'd think a college would have the money to replace a bench. Guess the educational system really is outta funds.
Contact your school's bursar office about it. Hopefully you've documented your interactions with the administration. I'd also check up on your school's policies on dealing with damages not caused by malicious intent or carelessness, as they may work in your favor. It may even be worth contacting a lawyer and getting them to hassle the school. Typically, they'll gladly give up a $400 bill (which is pocket change to them) to not have to deal with legal issues.
