    I had to write an essay on marketing strategy a few semesters back. I realize now I should have foregone parroting standard marketing theory and written a far more interesting narrative explaining how, in the modern business environment, misspelling ordinary words suddenly gives you a brand.

    Lyft, Glyde, Shyp...

    Or perhaps how replacing "I" with "y" is a money maker because it's seen as hip by Millenials.

    I like the way this company thinks, take advantage of peoples inherent laziness and make yourself rich.

    Every successful business is designed around this model. Even gyms, where the strategy has been elevated to an art form.

    Yes, I would. Heck, if I GO to the UPS store they charge me more than $5 for a box, bubble wrap, and tape. Saves me the time, gas, hassle. Worth it!

    Take this scenario: married with children, full time work, need to drop children at school, need to pick groceries, yada yada yada... A 5? Shut up and take my money!

    If I was not working I would agree with you, but I got tons of other priorities that I rather pay up and not worry about it.
