This whole situation could easily have been avoided if OP had just said 'no, I have work to do inside', and walked back into the hotel.
No drama, no mace, no police, no hassles, no green text.

not really.

When you hand a phone to a stranger, you are still liable for it. Just like insurance companies and cars.

you're not a fucking insurance company, if i ask you to keep an eye on my kid while i go to piss and you beat him to dead you're still responsible you fucking idiot, you broke someone elses property without their consent, period

>>2361526

that's easily demonstrable fraud, op was taking a picture with a normal phone under normal circumstances and he broke it, doesn't matter if it was an accident

A kid isn't property for one you fucking moron, and beating someone to death is a bit of a ridiculous analogy. When you hand your property to a stranger, you're taking responsibility for how they may handle/mishandle it, unless there is a record of agreement that the party holding it would be liable for damage.

That's why when you rent equipment you have to sign a bunch of shit that says you're responsible for any misuse, breakage etc.

Oh and by leaving your kid with a stranger you would be charged with criminal negligence.
