Day #25 - Ticketmaster Is A Scam

I bought concert tickets today for the first time in well over a year. The tickets were originally only $23.

Then then they added a $2.00 Facility Charge.

A $8.50 Convenience Charge.

A $2.70 Order Processing Fee.

And a $2.50 TicketPrinting Fee.

My ticket is now $37.50. Seriously Ticketmaster? You are assholes.

I'd rant more about the monopoly of Ticketmaster, but it's Thursday night and I busy watching The Real Housewives Reunion Part #1. Um hello, can we talk about the fabulousness of this please?
