I signed DD13 up for ballet today. I deliberately filled out the paper form and not the online form because I didn't want to give them permission to automatically draw tuition from my checking account. They said they would take credit cards, but their online registration form requires info for both the bank draft AND a credit card. No! The paper form asks for it, too, but I left that part blank and filled out the credit card info part.
Then they were very cooperative. The staff were all in a meeting when we got there for DD's ballet class (arrived early to turn in paperwork and see if they needed anything else). DD's dance teacher wasn't in the meeting and she taught dance class on time, but the staff meeting just kept going and going and going, even knowing they had someone with some paperwork (they knew I was there with it). "Oh, our meeting is almost done," said one gal I stopped as she came back from the restroom. "Okay, thank you!" Nope. Class time finished, and they were STILL happily meeting away. To be fair they were being quite productive in their brainstorming of a Christmas shindig they are planning for their students.
DD has a very nice teacher. She happily took our filled-out form and said she'd give it to the appropriate people when the meeting finished. Yay! I didn't have to face anyone who might try to insist on having the bank draft info! I plan on being rather passive/resistant if they try to insist on that. "But you said you accept credit card payments. I've chosen to pay by credit card."
