Thanks for your story Shawn

*Points a finger and screams* It's people like YOU that keep the advertising demons coming at us! In all honesty, the ability to take a step back and decide if you actually want an item is not all that common. People are impulsive when it comes to buying, take a look at how many people grab a candybar near the register some time. Few people went in to GET a candybar.
