"International credit card company" my arse!
Mastercard...heard of it? Yeah, international company right? But can I use my Mastercard with a UK billing address to buy ANYTHING online in the US? Nope. Garg.
I'm looking for tickets to fly to San Diego sometime soonish so I can see all my friends there, and if I buy thorugh Expedia.com I can get a ticket for $188, but they won't let me buy it with my brit credit card! So I'd have to go through Expedia.co.uk, pay $100 more, and it would be sent to my parents house in Edinburgh! AAAAAAAAAARGH! Hello Auntie, can I borrow your credit card number for a minute...
*sigh* I'll figure something out, hopefully something that doesn't involve paying more just because I'm a damn brit.
