When it comes to lending items, it's always tough to weigh the risk of losing something versus helping out a friend. However, when my friend lost my expensive Moncler coat at a party, I was understandably upset. To make matters worse, she didn't even take the coat I offered her and instead took a different one. I asked her to pay me back the full cost of the coat, but now she's upset and saying she can't afford it. Am I in the wrong here for holding her accountable? Let me know what you think.

Friend borrows coat, loses it - am I wrong to charge?
