10. Late Mortgage Payment

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.
