The Ultimate Late Fee

18 Apr, 2010 | GeneralTdp

I've paid some late fees in my time but even I think $300,000 is a bit steep.

The first president of the United States of America borrowed two books from the New York Society Library in 1789 but failed to return them.

Adjusted for inflation, he has since racked up $300,000 (£195,000) in fines for being some 220 years late.
