Why I hate TicketBastard!

So I've got these tickets for Avenue Q on Tuesday. I went down to the State Theater on Friday to buy them.
One advantage to doing this instead of buying them online is that a real person could look at the charts and show me which seats were available instead of the online "best available" which doesn't let you really choose.
The other reason was to avoid the TicketBastard charges.

So, for two cheap seats I paid $54.00 total. I also put $0.50 cents in a parking meter. That is $54.50 for two tickets.
Just now out of curiosity I went through the TicketBastard system to see just how much I saved. Two cheap seats bought online would have cost me $77.32!
That is an extra $22.82 just for the convenience of buying online!
Plus it's an extra $2.50 if you want to print your own ticket using your own paper and ink instead of having TicketBastard print and mail them! How did they come up with that scheme?!? And why do people actually pick that option?!? I'm sorry, but if I am going to save you the trouble of printing and mailing I'm sure as hell not going to pay extra for it!!!

I have no problem paying a little extra for the convenience factor, but a 42% surcharge? That is fucking insane!!!
