Default Who\'s right? (Dispute with my dad)

Back in July, my parents went on a two-week mission trip to Peru. They have three dogs and they live about 20 minutes away from me. I agreed to take care of the dogs and other general house-sitting duties (mail, newspapers) at no charge. They are my parents, after all.

One night my fiancee went out with her sisters so I just stayed at the house and slept there, in the recliner. I wear contacts and have glasses for late night/first thing in the morning. I took off the glasses and put them on the table next to the recliner. In the morning when I woke up, the youngest dog had destroyed the glasses, chewing the earpieces and lenses.

When they got back, I told my mom about it and she said they'd pay for a replacement pair. I held off because my bi-annual eye exam was in October, and I wanted to wait until after any change in prescription to get them. It's annoying not having glasses, but I managed.

Fast forward to present day. I went to Costco and got the cheapest glasses I could--$40 frames, $90 total. I stopped in at my dad's drycleaners today and told him he owed me the $90. Well, he's not paying. He thinks it is my fault for leaving the glasses where the dog could get them.

Who should pay?

Should be who is worse, you or your parents, for arguing over $90 when it comes to family.

wow I would never ask my parents to pay. I'm pretty sure they'd never expect to pay either

Would you like your old man to tally all the [censored] he had to pay for on your behalf?

I wouldn't ask a stranger for $90 so obviously I wouldn't ask my parents.
