Oh my god…what a shitty company… I went online to order a ticket for the upcoming Mogwai show at the Metro (in Chicago). The tickets are $18.00 each which I am fine with…well then wonderful ticketmaster tacks on the following:
Full Price Tickets US $18.00 x 1
Total Building Facility Charge(s) US $1.00 x 1
Total Convenience Charge(s) US $6.75 x 1
Additional Taxes US $0.27
Order Processing Charge(s) US $4.80
Standard Mail No Charge
TOTAL CHARGES US $30.82
Building fee I am fine with, convenience fee, I am okay with…taxes I am a but pissed about and then a $4.80 order processing fee? What the fuck? That tacks on $12.82 to am $18.00 ticket? 71% surcharge…are they the mafia? Fuck that. I will try and have some one in the area pick me up a ticket because you can get them for 19.00 in advance or $21.00 the day of.
