A gripe about a rip-off

A short Sunday rant.

Today, as is pretty normal for me I went to my local shop to purchase a range of goods. My local is very convenient being about a 2 minute from my house. It’s a pretty normal local shop, nothing fresh except milk and bread, frozen food you really take your life in your hands with, a selection of household items and a massive selection of booze, fags and sweets.

I use this shop regularly, at the very least 4-5 times a week buying tobacco, milk, bread, sweets, occasional booze, pet foods and lottery tickets. Oh and cleaning stuff – loo roll and bleach spray.

Today I spent £20 on an assortment of general stuff and did as I always do, inserted my card in the little reader when the nice man behind the counter advised “70 pence charge for card.”

Er, what?

“70 pence charge for card. Bank charges have gone up.”

Now I’m not an idiot. I know how these things work. I know it doesn’t cost 70 pence a transaction, or even 3.5% of my bill.
