I think today's people crave high end everything. Remember Formica? Now everyone has to have granite. Vinyl tile? Now exotic hardwoods and stones. Crank windows in all cars? Now we have 16 way, heated and cooled massage seats. Rabbit ears? How about $200+ a month cable bills....it goes on and on.
The difference between try and triumph is a little "umph"! NO EXCUSES!!!!!!!
