A: I made a terrible mistake!
B: What's the problem?
A: I made the check for the mortgage and didn't mail it!
B: When was it due?
A: Yesterday! I thought I sent it three days ago!
B: It was just an honest mistake.
A: Do you think I can send it now?
B: Well, you have to. They may charge a late fee, though.
A: I have to be more careful when making the payments.
B: Yes, you do! I'd hate to be evicted.
A: Don't joke about things like that!
B: I'm sorry. I'll go mail the check now.
