A classic case of being able to dish out out but not being able to take it sorry OP
What the **** is his problem? You better have him pay up for new strings.
I don't get why everyone thinks that you can just make your siblings pay for stuff. Usually in FMLs people are living with their siblings, which means they probably aren't adults yet. My brothers don't have jobs. I don't have a job. Not even my step-siblings had a job. So exactly where do you think they're supposed to get money from?
Because children usually have money spent on/given to them for holidays and birthdays. When my brother broke my stuff, my mother took money from whatever she had allotted for his birthday/Christmas gifts, and used it to replace the object. If it would run his "gift fund" into the red, he would still get a gift, but it would be something less impressive than what he would have gotten originally. A few shirts instead of a video game, stuff like that. Also, people say that the sibling should have to pay for it because them NOT having to do so gives them the impression that they can do whatever they want and regardless of the costs to others, they won't be punished for it. It is called "trying to teach that actions have consequences," and failure to teach it creates monsters in human-flesh suits that prey upon actually decent human beings.
