Think you've hit the nail on the head there, jedisearcher. They all want things 'yesterday', for as little money as possible, and without putting any time or effort into it. I despair of the world my grandkids are growing up in.

They'll never know the excitement of waiting for the 'snail mail' to bring them the photos they sent off to be developed by Tru Print (after finally using up the full roll of film), to usually then discover that only about 5 of the 24 were any good - the rest being over-exposed, head missing, low quality etc.

Or even using an old corded telephone with a dial - waiting for it to finish rotating back before you could put the next number in.

Ooops, showing my age now, ha ha!
