Ticketbasturdz stealin’ ma ink!

tickbastasds stealing my ink!

Maybe I’m just bit of stingey bastard – but coloured ink cartridges ain’t cheap. I buy ink every now and then and it seems to disappear in a blink. So I just go without for a while, and eventually get around to buying some more. And then I try not to use it unless I really need to, rare commodity that it is in these tough times. I doubt I’m alone in that ink buying cycle.

And then ticketbastards come along and steal my last bit of ink. With Ads. FUCKING ADS. They even state that the whole page must be printed – with the ads sandwiched between the two barcodes. I think it’s fucking scandalous. I can’t even remember picking a print-my-own-tickets option. And THEY charge ME €4.20 service charge per page. I should be charging them. They’re not even for me. They’re for a mate with no credit card / computer. I already knew they were bastards but this is really taking the piss.

142,000 search results for the word TICKETBASTARDS. That’s really saying something.

    I am SO with you. Got very riled up about this last week – ink is bloody expensive and I don’t want to be paying them to show me ads they’re undoubtedly getting money for, particularly not when the ticket charge is so extortionate. Grrrr.

    I detest ticketmaster. I hope that their entire TM management team are on the Ryanair flight that finally sets the flight-cycle statistics to rights and plunges into the sea, leaving their stag/hen party demographic marooned at home with sudden awareness of the potential for aviation disaster. And bankrupt ticketmaster in the process, the theiving charge-per-transaction giiiiits. Sorry, got a bit excited there.

    Actually, I desperately need to book something on ticketmaster in the next day – will black & white printing do for them?

      Charge-per-transaction? Well done Anderson, getting so worked up that you don’t even rant properly. Charge-per-TICKET – thieving rip-off **************s (insert swearword of your own invention there). Deep breaths.

    Nathalie, yeah thought I wouldn’t be alone on this one!

    Dave – good ranting! yeah bit silly of me to just hit print. I’m sure b&w is fine. The barcodes are b&w.

    K8 bless your eyes! Got them for a mate and his son but decided to go myself too.

    WDI, hi there. Yep if you look up taking the piss in the dictionary, you get a full colour page of ticketmaster ads.

      Hello Mrs TicketBastard. Enjoy your lunch. I paid for it. Paid way over the odds. There should be pleny of change left over for a pint. Please pour it over your head.

      I’ve no memory of using Ticketfast. In fact I couldn’t proceed past the first page without choosing a postal delivery option.

      Indeed colour is far worse but I don’t want to print out 3 pages of ads whether in colour or black or white.

      Enjoy sucking satan’s cock.

      Are you for real? How could you work for Ticketbastard without realising that they have a monopoly on most events and that I have little very little choice if I want to buy a ticket? And that gives them power to do ridicilous things like charge me 4.20 to print out their ads. And that gives me (and thousands of others) every right to piss and moan. If you don’t like that, don’t work for them, your choice.

    They wreck my head, the ‘handling’ charges PER ticket, admin fees etc, and then I have to print it out myself!

    You couldn’t make this stuff up half the time.
