You owe $78! Do not pass go, do not collect $200!

Ack! This is one of the moments when you watch money go down the drain and dream of all the things you could do with that money if it wasn’t for stupid fees. It’s a detailed error, but the bottom line is that I made an error in my financial juggling that cost me $78 in fees! At first I was sure that it was the banks fault, but when I looked in to the detail it was clearly an error on my part. That certainly doesn’t make it any easier to be stuck with the charge. I’m normally the queen at defeating charges but that is much harder to do when it is clearly my fault.

At least the completely unrelated charge for a $3,500 ticket for Air France was dropped in less than five minutes. It looks like I’ll be stuck with the $78 charge and use this as an example of why it is important to manage finances well. Don’t let it happen to you!
