16 Enraging And Unbelievably Dumb Fees People Were Charged That Make Me Wholly Angry

Resort fees, ticket fees, service fees — you just can't go anywhere without a fee being tacked on. And some of them are...creative. Let's let our blood collectively boil as we scroll through these 16 ridiculous fees people were charged.

1.This Airbnb cleaning fee that you'd have to put a dollar toward every day for a year to cover for one night.

A bill that shows the charge for a room is $383, the cleaning fee is $365, the service fee is $105, and other taxes and fees are $132

2.The fees this person's university charged them for a semester that was completely online.

The charges show a computer fee of $171, a school fee of$188, and a campus fee of $734

3.This person who was surprised with a 4% "economic recovery fee" after treating themselves to a night out.

The economic recovery fee is tacked on to the end of the bill before tax

4.This $50 gift card that had dwindled itself because of fees.

A $50 gift card that hasn't been used now has a balance of $8.35 because of inactivity fees and account maintenance fees

5.The $800 in ticket fees here. I'll never understand why tickets have so many fees.

Tickets for a World Series game say "face value: $4,100; fees: $789"

6.This up-front "no surprises" bill that doesn't hurt any less.

The receipt says a rental home costs $897, then adds $61 in tax, $86 for a destination fee, $172 for property service charge, and $1,873 for a cleaning fee, for a "no surprises" total of $3,000

7.This cruise fare that seems like it purposely tried to negate all of its discounts with fees.

The cruise fare is $1,000, then there are three discounts applied for $50, $278, and $100; but then $642 in taxes and fees is added at the end

8.These Uber fees that nearly doubled the cost of the ride.

The receipt says the normal fare came out to $75, but there was a $45 surging fee and $10 booking fee, bringing the total to $120

10.This to-go fee that truly proves we can't just pay for food anymore.
