In a viral video on TikTok, a student expressed her displeasure after receiving an email from Washington State University’s finance office about an outstanding debt of just $0.01 cent.
The warning in the email stated that failure to pay could result in late fees and possibly withholding of your diploma.
The student, who goes by the TikTok username @lantie, faked panic in the video, saying: “That’s scary! I’m in a panic! What charge is this? How much is this? I have like $90 in my bank account, how am I going to pay for this?
However, the situation was made comical when he revealed that the outstanding balance was only $0.01 cent. In a sarcastic tone, the girl said:
“Don’t you think you could just let this go? I mean, I guess I’ll sign up for a payment plan. I have a penny lying around. I’ll go in person and give it to them”.
The clip generated a lively discussion in the comments section, with numerous users sharing their own accounts of similar warnings for small amounts of money.
One user said: “My apartment management threatened to evict me for a debt over $0.07. The ridiculousness of capitalism”.
Another user suggested that the student should sarcastically ask for a receipt after paying the balance: “Make sure to ask them to mail you a receipt.”
A third user also explained the absurdity of the situation by saying, “The energy cost to create, send, receive, and display that email costs more.”
While many found the video funny,
others highlighted the absurdity of institutions threatening students for such miniscule amounts of money.
