Personal Quote:

I remember getting a credit card and I didn't use it for a month because I didn't know what to do with it and I felt like an idiot. But the idea that I could go and buy, never mind a jacket, but three jackets in different colours was amazing. But listen, we would've done this for nothing. We would've paid you to let us do this.
