Paying more in fees than you think
Ignorance seems to always come back to punish a tragic hero. He is completely oblivious to all of the money he’s wasting in fees. He figures that they can’t be that big of a deal if he doesn’t ever notice them. He’s being hit with interest fees, annual fees, and even an occasional late fee.
But imagine what he could be doing with that money if he wasn’t paying fees! Paying down debt faster? Saving for retirement? Giving a charitable donation? Surely that would earn the good grace of the gods.
