Nickle and Dimed

There is an annoying trend at some businesses, restaurants mainly it seems, to charge a small fee to pay by Interac or credit card. This nickle and dime fee is seriously annoying, enough to drive me away from a business. I'd much rather see this fee added to all products in a fashion that would generate the equivalent revenue (perhaps cost recovery) for the business. I'm really not going to notice an additional few cents built into the price of a product, but I'm going to get really peaved if you ask for these cents after ringing up the bill.
