Rattles?! What a prat I am!

Having read so many posts about rattles and squeaks I was well prepared when I took ownership of my Bella back in November.

Sure enough within two weeks I heard the "B Pillar Area" rattle whenever I was alone in the car. I wound me up rotten! Last week when going to buy some oil (just as a precaution, she's still fine after 1500 miles) I carried out a thorough investigation. To my shame it turned out to be nothing more sinister than the seat belt clip on the passenger side tapping against the internal part of the B pillar. This was easily solved by lifting it right up to the part where it feeds in.

Am I stupid or What!? Is this normal? I have not owned a car for six years until Bella, surely this must happen with most cars in this budget range???
