I have a funny story. My FIL and his wife live a simple life. Dial-up, basic cable, old appliances etc. Recently my Step MIL had to stay at a hotel for work for a few days and she was in heaven. She had a basic room with fast internet, cable, large flat screen tv you can view from the bathroom, & hot tub. She came home and decided she didn't want to live the simple life anymore. She is tired of living with old technology & realized they are the only ones with dial-up. Now they are looking into DSL/cable connection, flat screen tv, laptop & cable.
They have been living off of one salary and banking the other for many years now. It's time to spend it on themselves she said.
