Convenience Fee

I just registered my daughter for her club soccer team for next fall.  I opted to pay online and after I hit the "submit" button for the payment a window popped up saying that I was going to be assessed a $1.75 "convenience fee" for paying online with a credit card.  A friend of mine had a much more appropriate term for this kind of fee; he called it a d-ck fee.  And if you're wondering what the dash stands for let's just say that the word would not be a bird that quacks.

That kind of crap makes me want to drive over to the office and pay with a sack of pennies.
