To Sell, or Not To Sell

A guy who has been borrowing my tripod offered to buy it. For $200. I bought it a few months ago for $25. It's probably worth more than even $200, and I've had an offer to buy it before, but I turned that down because I didn't want to sell it. I still don't. But it would be nice to have $200. But I'd just spend it. Hmmm...what to do, what to do. I'd essentially be doing it as a favor. He needs it, is willing to pay for it. But I don't really need the money, and I like my tripod, even if I don't use it very often. He would use it all the time.

Why is this even a question in my mind? I don't want to sell it, so why would I? Because it would really help out this guy, that's why. But he's practically a stranger to me, I don't owe him anything. But how often do I/should I operate out of sheer obligation? This doesn't even make sense, I should just keep it.

On a totally unrelated note, I really like this song (slash video). Just bought it from iTunes.

Charge him some rent. That way you can still have you tripod and he can still use it but it is still yours.
