Anyone bought tickets on stubhub lately? I had not, but I've been selling my Cubs tickets there for years.

I tried to buy a $68 bleacher ticket today and by the time I checked out, my cost was $85.64. Hold on, I say to myself. They take a cut from my sales, as well. So I "listed" one of my tickets at $68 and saw that I'd get to keep $61 of that if they sold. So on a $68 listing, stubhub pockets $24.64, or >35%. That's horsefeathering insane. When is their ticketmaster-y class action coming?

25% to the buyer and 10% to the seller. Sounds about right, and all of the sites do it. It sucks,

Another rant:
I sell my Bears tickets on NFL ticket exchange, a site owned by the NFL and some [expletive] a couple years ago was smoking in my seats and got caught, so I get a nasty letter from the Bears saying if anyone is caught smoking again my tickets will be revoked.

That hits close to home, I work in Support and had to make a text expander to correct my spelling of account because somehow I'd go too fast and put the O between the Cs.

If you work for a government agency and you manage to snag a non-reserved front row parking spot every damn day where available parking is a HUGE rarity, I feel like driving one of those nu-Challengers with the stars and stripes painted across the entire top is just asking for everyone to hate you.

I think this can happen in any job where there's a set of words you frequently type. For me it was the word footprint. My fingers used to always want to transpose the t and the p.
