I couldn't imagine buying flowers, or gift baskets. I couldn't imagine buying sunglasses. I'm one of those people who has to simply buy some things in person.

It's the delivery bit. A while ago my wife ordered flowers online for her grandma's funeral, which we could not attend -- it was in another country. The only alternative would have been to ask someone else to buy the flowers for us.

Every successful person has had failures but repeated failure is no guarantee of eventual success.
