I find it very appropriate that I had to type in “costly” as word verification while ordering tickets (for Siouxsie Sioux) from Ticketmaster today.
$8.35 “convenience” charge per ticket? Yes, I’m sure it was very convenient for them to charge me that amount. $2 building facility charge? What in hellfire and damnation does that mean? These people are worse than the cursed phone company when it comes to making up obscure fees.
I think I’m going to start sending bills to companies that insist on inventing countless bogus ways to rob us just to show them that I can play their game, too.
Mailbox facility charge: $2
National spam defense tax: $3
Me not coming to your corporate office with a machete charge: $6.66
