It leaves a bad taste in your mouth

We've got tickets for the U2 Wembley concert, which is exciting. After the last tour (which I didn't get to) I resolved that I would definitely make every attempt to get to a future concert, and I should be able to.

The booking system (which I entrusted to my wife) was a little stressful, but kind of worked okay. But what left the sour taste was the booking charges. Paying for delivery is fair enough, though I seriously doubt that the sender will pay close to the amount charged for p+p. But the service charge - more than 10% of the ticket cost! What's that for? The ticket seller? That seems steep.
