What to do when accidents happen?
At our holiday party an elegant elderly gentleman went to put his glass of red wine on our coffee table and something awful happened. The full glass of red wine tumbled and splashed on to our new beige Stark carpet. Being the distinguished gentleman that he is, he offered to pay for having the carpet cleaned. He said to please send him the bill or email him the amount and he’ll send us a check. The cost of the cleaning is a couple of hundred dollars.
The guest is many years retired living on a fixed income and we want to know the etiquette on handling the reimbursement? He won’t believe how expensive cleaning the red wine stains out of our carpet actually was.
