Found this below quote on the Chuck's Firearms web-site. It's a more formal way of saying, "If you pay peanuts expect monkey's." It rings very true and reminds me of my 20's when I went through one cheap frying pan after another when all I needed to do was save up a bit more and buy one that I could still be using today.
Of course, we are ultimatley to blame for our purchases and to some degree, learn from our mistakes. So, one shouldn't be all that surprised or "bitter" that their alarm clock for $5.99 didn't wake them up or that their $150 suit has lost its shape after only 6 months. The same goes for the service industry.
"In this world, you get what you pay for."
