Re: Work laptop damage

View Post
Is getting hit by a car when crossing the street without looking first an accident? Is getting burned when you use the dishcloth to take something out of the oven because you can't be bothered to use the oven gloves? What about having your dog who has eaten shoes in the past chew through your friend's Louboutins after you failed to warn her?

There are accidents and then there are logical or highly probable outcomes of a chosen course of action.
There are an infinite number of scenarios you could list, of varying levels of likelihood and accident vs carelessness factor, but that doesn't change the feedback:

Based on the long and actual experience of many posters in this thread, accidentally spilling water on a laptop is not negligence, generally not considered unduly careless on a first occurrence, and is paid for by the employer.
