You weren’t even the one who went on vacation and you’re only there for five minutes, but there’s an opportunity to meet you and the airports have seized it. Your good deed costs you £8 and will your freeloading wife and kids be stumped? no way. Still, it’s cheap compared to anything at the airport or on a flight.

You are effectively being penalized for being sick or worse, penalized for devoting your life to healing the sick.

Check and send the passport
A passport is already a £70 rip-off – surely a document that proves your identity and right to be here should be standard?

The price of the gig itself is more than reasonable, shitloads more. And then they slap another £15 on top? Offensively screwing it up sometimes by charging you £1.50 to print your tickets on your own f**king printer? It doesn’t cost money to email a PDF, you bastards.
Guaranteed parcel delivery
‘I would like to send a parcel.’ ‘Of course, of course. A service where there is every chance it won’t arrive and you have no recourse if it doesn’t, or do you want it to reach the recipient? This incurs additional costs.’
