Today, my mother offered to pay for my tickets to go see my girlfriend who I haven't seen for 6 months. She was happy to pay for the £130 flight, but then refused half way through the purchase because she wasn't going to "let the buggers charge £13 extra" for using her credit card. FML

I can't blame her, I wouldn't want to pay an extra ~$21 just to use my credit card, what kind of company does that? I suggest either trying a different airline or a different travel site.

48, this is why I'm loosing faith in our education system. I'm from the United States, so for me to relate money wise to a post about a British monetary unit, I had to do a conversion.

Now, in case this sounds hard, it's really not. It was as simple as me going to Google and typing in, "13 pounds as $," and hitting enter. Google then uses the most current exchange rate to convert it. Also note how I used the most similar symbol to the "about," symbol, as it's not an exact dollar exchange.

The more you know.

P.S. I'm proud of everyone else who replied and actually reads/has an education. For you 48, calling someone a name doesn't prove any point other then pointing out your own lack of an educated response.
