I ran into a weird problem with my MasterCard. I never use it because it's the only one I've got that I can't set up auto-pay with. All my AmEx cards are set to pay in full (I use my cards as instant checks that get me cash back at the end of the year, not credit cards), but this stupid MC isn't and I'm always getting smacked with a late charge if that one purchase every nine months because some merchant doesn't take AmEx because they clip the most on charges.
So last month I'm parking in a lot with a central electronic pay station and I only need 25 CENTS to cover the last half-hour of time they enforce. Unfortunately, my last two quarters had tipped the waitress (total: $1.50) and my g/f had no change. All I could do was charge it and the damn thing doesn't take AmEx. Fook! Out comes the MC for a 25 cent charge.
I went to pay my bill and it won't let me pay anything under ONE DOLLAR. WTFF?!?!? If I don't pay this 25 cent bill on time, they'll probably whack me for $29 or $39 in late fees. Talk about a Catch-22! I ended up using the MC instead of PayPal for my $16 GMG Sky-o-Shock purchase, so I should be able to pay my damn bill but come on.
