Battery Durablity

How durable are the batteries on bikes? My genius roomate moved my bike without my permission (violation #1-#100) yesterday, turned on the bike to do it (violation #101) so he could see if it was in neutral cause he's not mechanically inclined or knowledgeable of bikes (violation #102-#200) enough to just clutch it and push (violation #201). It gets better, then he forgot to turn it off with my highbeams on leaving it for me to find dead when I woke up(violation #201-#1000). So I had to use my car to get to school while I recharged the battery, LAME! Anyway, how durable is that battery? Cause for concern besides living with a retard?

One drain in moderate weather, not above 100, not below freezing, you'll be able to recharge fine. Shouldn't have stressed the battery too much.

But don't tell the retard that... have fun with him.

Oh he feels bad, I made sure of it. I did it wickedly too. Not angrily or flying off the handle. In a calm, you know you done F***ED up right, kind of voice. He owes me one for sure.

Hide the key, charge the battery, and fill it with water.

Pretty much. Just put it on a slow trickle charge and make sure the acid is full.
