Peccadillo

Peccadillo

<pek-kah-dil-low>

small offense; misdeed; indiscretion;

a small and unimportant misdeed;

Don't worry. Your traffic ticket is a pecadillo. It will be a tiny fine.

Memory trick:
Peccadillo reminds of armadillo
an armadillo is a small animal

At work:
Being late for the meeting is only a peccadillo because your presentation was awesome.
