Even after I moved into my own place, I had just paid over $100 to fix the disk drive on my Amiga 3000, and while they were visiting me one of them forced a disk in backwards and broke it. Of course, they refused to pay for it, so I just didn't ever let them come over again.
Wanna hear a horror story (too late for Halloween, but oh well)?
Back in the day, I think I was on summer break from college, we had an active Atari 8-bit users group on the Air Force base, and frequently we would go to each others houses and swap software. One day, I went with a friend to another club member's house to swap software. My friend brought his collection of floppies (which really were "floppy" back then) and his disk drive, which he brought to facilitate copying.
Well, the club member (I'll call him "Joe") had a four or five year old monster, er, kid. While we were all chatting, Joe's kid spilled Kool-Aid in my friend's box of disks!!!! Frantically, we all went to Joe's kitchen and started pulling out the disks to try to blot them with paper towels and such.
While we were doing this, Joe's kid picked up my friend's disk drive, walked over to the balcony of the fourth-story apartment, and TOSSED THE DISK DRIVE OFF THE BALCONY!!!! CRASH!!!!! Nobody was hurt below, fortunately, although the drive was of course destroyed.
Joe was of course extremely apologetic, and my friend was surprisingly cool about the whole incident. His disk drive, and probably a good portion of his software collection, was destroyed! I don't know if Joe ever reimbursed my friend for the drive.... I hope so.
