What a stupid mistake, cost me a lot of money too!

My visa expired a few days ago and now I have to pay 500/day for overstaying. Luckily I'm a student and not working so I won't be charged as illegal worker. I completely forgot and I'm so upset with myself now. Unfotunately, the visa officer can't prepare all the papers today so I have to wait till Friday and that means I have to pay for 9 days! Now I guess I should know better. Life! (Sigh!) sometimes we need to make this stupid and expensive mistakes to learn a valuable lesson!

Boy that was an exensive mistake. Bet you won't let that happen again. I always lean the hardway myself. It's better for the memory. If you are not working where are you going to get all that money? How much longer do you have for your studies?

Good , everybody learns from mistakes they made . your is an expensive one. Even I faced similiar situation 9 months back. I didn't noticed that insurance of my car was expired and finally as you know bad things happen for worst . I met with accident and was asked to pay some 500$ (23000 rs. INR ) to person who was injured . I finally settled the matter by overpowering the guy. Anyway I won't forget to renew all my insurances on time.
