I've Got A Place To Shove Your Convenience Fee

Who came up with the "convenience fee"? And how in the hell do they get away with charging one?

It isn't a convenience to get an additional charge automatically stacked on to my order for absolutely no reason and that provides absolutely no value to me. It is just a way of pretending their prices are lower than they really are.

When we went to the county fair a few weeks ago, there was a coupon to buy the tickets online and save a buck. But then they went and added a dollar to the cost and called it, you guessed it, a convenience fee. So convenient for me to pay to print my own ticket and pay the regular full price for the ticket. Woop-de-fucking-do!

Whenever I hear the words "convenience fee" my brain automatically translates it to "Fuck You and Pay Us More Money for Nothing Fee".
