Tom's Tax

What does that concert really cost?

Tom, I understand that, as you told me last May, "It takes money to provide the service that we're trying to." And, for the most part, people are extremely happy with the services you're providing; it's the weaselly way that you tack on hidden charges that gets our panties in a bunch.

Why not put the extra few bucks you so obviously need to run the joint right up front, on the face value of the ticket? You're running a numbers game; it's a dull subject, like taxes, but a scam nonetheless. And like taxes, as soon as it comes out of my wallet, I get fascinated.

Forget that overpriced beer: Charges tacked on to advance ticket purchases can make quite a dent.
