My dad is mad at me cause I “ruined his invaluable collectibles” that he gave me to use for arts/crafts when I was 14. Who is at fault ?

At the time he said they wouldn’t be worth anything so gave them to me to use for art projects. Now I’m in my 20s and he holds it against me. But I was 14 and he gave them to me to use for art projects. I told him if he didn’t want me to he shouldn’t have given them to me and told me to use them in art projects. He now says I should have known better. Is this really my fault ?!

Use his own logic against him. He shouldve known better


He is at fault since he told you to use them for art projects and the got mad when you therefore he should never given them to you in the first place if there was even a slight possiblity that he would get mad when you used them for crafts.


He's not mad at you, he's mad at himself. You just perceive his continued self-flagellation to be directed at you, when you are just the trigger that make him remember his own mistake. Just tell him you're glad he was so generous towards you as a kid, and why don't you both go out and have a beer?


tell him to get lost
