I finally bought something with Bitcoin .... it has a long was to go

A popup appeared. Creditcard, Paypal or Bitcoin. I normally click paypal ... but it was a small amount USD7. So, I said let's go Bitcoin! It was sitting in my softwallet for a while. Market's down, but hey. Let's see. The USD7 somehow figured into being USD12 ..... Mobile wallet fees or something ........ Everything is in BTC yet I'm paying for a service in USD so it takes ages to work out. 1 hour later I'm still waiting on transaction confirmed. Sorry Bitcoin, but I'd have been finished and saved money with Paypal in 30secs.
